Registering Clients on a Proxy

Proxy servers can act as a broker and package cache for both tradional and Salt clients. Registering clients on a Uyuni Proxy is very similar to registering them directly on Uyuni, with a few key differences.

This section contains information on registering Salt clients on a proxy using the Web UI, or with a bootstrap script.

Within the Web UI, proxy pages will show information about both Salt and traditional clients.

You can see a list of clients that are connected to a proxy by clicking on the name of the proxy in Main Navigation  Systems  Systems  Proxy, selecting the Details tab, and then selecting the Proxy tab.

A list of chained proxies for a Salt client can be seen by clicking on the name of the client in Main Navigation  Systems  All, selecting the Details tab, and then selecting the Connection tab.

If you decide to move any of your clients between proxies or the server you will need to repeat the registration process from the beginning.
