Virt-who Configurations

The Virt-who configurations page can be accessed via the infrastructure menu:

Infrastructure > Virt-who configurations

The Virt-who configurations plugin connects to KVM, RHV, and VMware vSphere hypervisors in order to count RHEL instances for the purpose of RHEL subscription management.

The Virt-who configurations page is a part of the Virt-who configurations plugin and only exists if this plugin is installed on your orcharhino.
