[Satellite6] When subscription expires, Content Host lost their subscriptions and rhsmcertd is auto-attaching available subscriptions from the pool

Solution Unverified - Updated -

Issue

  • When subscription expires, Content Host lost their subscriptions and rhsmcertd is auto-attaching available subscriptions from the pool.
    This causes unintended available subscriptions (example OpenShift, JBoss EAP, etc.) providing the RHEL base repo to be attach on the system.

  • There is no seamless way to get a Content Host from being Active (Green) to Active (Green) during subscription expiry to subscription renewal window.

  • Activation keys assigned with DERIVED subscriptions become unusable when Host subscription expired.

Environment

  • Red Hat Satellite 6
