Why does registration to IBM Softlayer fail after successful unregistration from Red Hat Satellite?

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • Error after completing unregister process and while re-registration to IBM Softlayer (IBM Cloud)
This server appears to be registered to a satellite infrastructure not managed by IBM. Re-registration cannot continue since unregistering this server would invalidate any existing Red Hat registration.
