The tooling hits separate systems, so register is showing that you are
registered, but only because the RHN tooling is configured and reports it's
registered. Attach tries to attach subscriptions from RHSM and will fail
because the RHSM system does not manage the system.

For the host subscription/entitlement information to be propagated into the
container, it would either require the host be subscribed to Satellite 6 or
the hosted subscription management service.

Possible options I can think of off the top of my head:
- Subscribe OpenShift systems directly to Subscription Manager, instead of
Satellite 5.5
- Access packages through a reposync'd mirror:
https://access.redhat.com/solutions/9892, and configure the mirror as part
of the container build.

I'd suggest contacting support and/or account manager, since they may know
of other options available and could potentially help advocate for adding
Satellite 5 support.
