ESX Host with 4 CPU Sockets consumes 2 quantities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Virtual Data Center Subscription in Red Hat Satellite 6.

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • ESX Host with 4 CPU Sockets consumes 2 quantities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Virtual Data Center Subscription in Red Hat Satellite 6.
  • Red Hat Satellite 6.2 does not recognize the number of sockets in the ESX servers and hence, it allows to attach only 1 subscription for each full ESX server despite the number of sockets
  • From Red Hat Satellite 6.3 and onwards, the satellite server attaches 2 quantities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Virtual Datacenters with Smart Management on a hypervisor.

Environment

  • Red Hat Satellite 6.2
  • Red Hat Satellite 6.3 & onwards
