Description Og Maciel 2017-11-07 21:43:58 UTC
Description of problem:

The problem boils down to this: if you're provisioning a host (libvirt in my case) using a host group/activationkey/host collection where the host collection is set to a limit, the registration process fails with the error:

  Host collection 'RHEL 7' exceeds maximum usage limit of '5'

If you change the host collection to unlimited, then registration proceeds without a glitch

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

* satellite-6.3.0-21.0.beta.el7sat.noarch

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Sync content and add it to a content view
2. Publish/promote content view
3. Create activation key, associate it to the content view AND set a limit of 5 hosts
4. Create a host collection is set a limit of 5 hosts
5. Associate the host collection to the activation key
6. Provision a new host using the host group created earlier

Actual results:

The host will provision but it will not be registered

Expected results:

Comment 3 Og Maciel 2017-11-07 22:08:29 UTC
Even if I set the host collection to unlimited host limit and manually attempt to register an existing host, I still get the same error:

# subscription-manager register --org="dc8079af-8e04-4d63-897c-2ecbf89aad78" --activationkey="ak-rhel-70"
Host collection 'RHEL 7' exceeds maximum usage limit of '5'

For new registrations, this works fine.
