Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • New Satellite certificate activation fails with "You do not have enough unused virtualization_host/virtualization_host_platform entitlements"

    # rhn-satellite-activate --rhn-cert=/tmp/new.cert
    RHN_PARENT: satellite.rhn.redhat.com
    Error: You do not have enough unused virtualization_host entitlements in the base org. You will need at least 25 free entitlements, based on your current consumption. Please un-entitle the remaining systems for the activation to proceed.
    
  • Satellite activation produces errors for renewal certificates when suborganizations contain allocated virtualization_host entitlements that do not match or exceed amount in certificate

Environment

  • Red Hat Satellite 5.4 and later
  • New subscriptions activated in account (based on new entitlements)
