Unable to disable the subscription manager plugin for yum/dnf

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • When we call dnf repolist we always get a message the server is not registered with the Satellite. As per our requirement, We are not expecting our installation to register with a satellite and we will need to disable the warning .
  • To do so we disable the subscription-manage plugin.
# cat  /etc/dnf/plugins/subscription-manager.conf

# When following option is set to 1, then all repositories defined outside redhat.repo will be disabled
# every time subscription-manager plugin is triggered by dnf or yum
  • This works, but this settings is autoenabled after sometime
