As per the deployment Guide, To use Ansible for the deployment, the Ansible controller machine must be connected to the Red Hat Network with a Server-Optional subscription in addition to the Base (operatingsystem) subscription. Could you please explain what is Server-Optional subscription? (We have registered RHEL7). Thanks!!

that is a step that is good-to-have, but I don't think it is a requirement. I am installing Viya on CentOS for testing purposes and CentOS does not have any subscription, of course.
What you will need, for sure, is to add the SAS repositories, to be able to download/install the SAS software, also in the deployment steps.

This is not true. Server-Optional subscription is a requirement on RHEL!

What do you have in files in /etc/yum.repos.d/*?
For an example, here is rhel-mirror.repo from my server:
... [rhel7-optional] name=RHEL7 Optional baseurl=http://<FQDN>/pub/vendor_pkgs/RedHat/7/x86_64/optional gpgcheck=1 enabled=1 gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-release ...
This might be specific to our organization. Please check this page on Red Hat website:
