  • Currently IPv6 support is not implemented with RHSM, so it won't be able to register machines(which has only ipv6 address) using subscription manager.


  • Discussion on this feature request has been initiated and tracked through Red Hat internal bugzilla. This might be included in RHEL 7 minor versions but no ETA set as of now. Contact Red Hat Technical support for status update on bugzilla.
