[Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5] Full-virt guest consumes regular Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription on Red Hat Network

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When I try to register a RHEL 5.5 fully virtualized guest to Red Hat Network (RHN), it consumes a regular Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription instead of an inherited entitlement provided by 'Virtualization' or 'Virtualization platform' entitlement or channel Flex Guest Entitlement. (Or it failed if the account doesn't have enough regular Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions).
