How do I use subscription-manager to manually remove an old system and register and subscribe a new system?

Solution In Progress - Updated -


We have two licenses for RHEL 6. I have used them both on machines A and B. I have now cloned machine A to a new machine, C. I would like to get rid of B and register C as a new system. How can I do this?
