auto attach does not attach VDC subscription after VM is migrated to another host

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • After migration of a VM subscriptions seems to get lost.
  • If a system has two products installed and executes subscription-manager attach --auto to subscribe the RHEL product, it fails, even though there is a subscription available.


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.10
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7
  • subscription-manager-1.20.10-8.el6.x86_64 and below
  • subscription-manager-1.24.13-3.el7_7.x86_64
  • additional Red Hat Products installed, for example JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7.2
