SUSE Manager Proxy Registration

Uyuni Proxy systems are registered as traditional clients or as Salt clients using a bootstrap script. Migrating a traditionally registered Proxy system to a Salt Proxy system is not possible. Re-install the Proxy if you want to switch to Salt.

The following procedure describe software channel setup and registering the installed Uyuni Proxy with an activation key as a Uyuni client.

Downloading Channels

Before you can select the correct child channels while creating the activation key, ensure you have completely downloaded the Uyuni Proxy 4 channel and all the recommended and mandatory SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 channels.

Procedure: Registering the Proxy
  1. Create an activation key based on the SLE-Product-SUSE-Manager-Proxy-4.0-Pool base channel. For more information about activation keys, see Creating Activation Key.

    • SLE-Module-Basesystem15-SP1-Pool

    • SLE-Module-Basesystem15-SP1-Updates

    • SLE-Module-Server-Applications15-SP1-Pool

    • SLE-Module-Server-Applications15-SP1-Updates

    • SLE-Module-SUSE-Manager-Proxy-4.0-Pool

    • SLE-Module-SUSE-Manager-Proxy-4.0-Updates

      The SLE-Product-SUSE-Manager-Proxy-4.0-Updates channel is mandatory.

  3. Modify a bootstrap script for the proxy if needed. If you want to run the proxy on a traditional client (system type Management) uncheck Bootstrap using Salt. Using Salt is the default. For more information about bootstrap scripts, see client-configuration:registration-bootstrap.adoc.

  4. Create the SUSE Manager Tools Repository for bootstrapping, see Create Tools Repository.

  5. Bootstrap the client with the bootstrap script. For more information, see client-configuration/pages/registration-bootstrap.adoc.

  6. In case of a Salt client, accept the key on the Main Menu  Salt  Keys page by clicking the check mark. It then will appear in the Main Menu  Systems  Overview.

  7. Check via System Details  Software  Software Channels that the four proxy channels (Pool and Updates for SLE-PRODUCT and SLE-MODULE) plus the recommended channels are selected; SLE-PRODUCT-Pool as the base channel and the others as child channels.
