Note this is on vRA 7.5.  We set up RHEL Satellite registration as a software component attached to each RHEL VM.

The software component runs as bash, but if you have a python script saved on the template, you can run that from the software bash script.  You can pass in keys, users, and passwords through the software component saved encrypted within vRA that can be passed to your script for registration.

This sets up the full life cycle of install and uninstall.  I won't provide too many details because because this is a choose your own adventure from this point.
