I have a redhat 7.4 machine, and I'm installing a 7.2 VM on it. This isn't for production, 99.9% just for learning.
I've gotten the VM up and running, but now I'm trying to set up a qemu guest so that I can actually communicate with it. I'm following the instructions written out here, but I'm encountering an issue when I get to step 3 of procedure 11.1. When I write
yum install qemu-guest-agent
I get the following error message:
This system is not registered to Red Hat Subscription Management. You can use subscription-manager to register. There are no enabled repos. You can enable repos with yum-config-manager --enable <repo>
I've tried following the instructions to enable repos with no success-- I get an error message informing me that I still need to register my product. Unfortunately, the host machine can't attach to the internet for security reasons (this is at my place of employment, so I have no means of changing that). So far as I can tell, I'll never be able to send anything to this VM except by flash drive (also not possible on the work machine) unless I can enable qemu operations.
How can I install qemu-guest-agent without registering the VM or getting internet access?
