Red Hat: cannot register with any organizations

on RHEL 7.0 I keep getting the same error when I try to update a little my packages:

[root@wltemplate ~]# yum install telnet
Failed to set locale, defaulting to C
Loaded plugins: product-id, subscription-manager
This system is not registered to Red Hat Subscription Management. 
You can use subscription-manager to register.
No package telnet available.
Error: Nothing to do

[root@wltemplate ~]# subscription-manager register --username pirla.vernetto 
--password blablabla --auto-attach

pirla.vernetto cannot register with any organizations.

I have desperately tried to add some Organization (like "the Sons of the Desert") in the RHEL portal profile page, but I could not find any ...

I keep fighting on it....

Ok it turned out (thanks to the timely response from RHAT Support) that the username (pirla.vernetto) I was using was INCORRECT (how about a "unkown username" error message??? ).

So this time around it DOES work:

The system has been registered with ID: blablabla123456 
Installed Product Current Status:
Product Name: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server
Status:       Subscribed

PPS it seems I (idiot me) had 2 accounts, with different username but the same email (!!!).... and only one of the 2 was enabled to register the RHEL 7.0 product!!! I have to admit that RHEL support was BRILLIANT and they replied immediately to my questions...
