How do I remove virtualization entitlement from a system on Red Hat Satellite 5?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Need to remove virtualization_host entitlement. The new Satellite certificate has 0 virtualization_host or 0
    virtualization_host_platform entitlements. Satellite certificate activation resulted to:
Certificate specifies 0 of virtualization_host entitlements.
    There are 1 entitlements used by systems in the base (id 1)organization.
    You might need to unentitle some systems in the base organization.
    You need to free 1 entitlements to match the new certificate.
    In the WebUI, the entitlement is named Virtualization Host.
Activation failed, will now exit with no changes.
