Proxy Registration

Proxy systems are registered as Salt clients using a bootstrap script.

This procedure describes software channel setup and registering the installed proxy as the Uyuni client, using an activation key.

Before you can select the correct child channels while creating the activation key, ensure you have properly synchronized the openSUSE Leap channel with all the needed child channels and the Uyuni Proxy channel.

Procedure: Registering the Proxy
  1. On the Uyuni Server, create openSUSE Leap and the Uyuni Proxy channels with the spacewalk-common-channels command. spacewalk-common-channels is part of the spacewalk-utils package:

    spacewalk-common-channels \
    opensuse_leap15_2 \
    opensuse_leap15_2-non-oss \
    opensuse_leap15_2-non-oss-updates \
    opensuse_leap15_2-updates \
    opensuse_leap15_2-uyuni-client \
    uyuni-proxy-stable-leap-152

    Instead of uyuni-proxy-stable-leap-152 you can also try uyuni-proxy-devel-leap that is the current development version.

    For more information, see Registering openSUSE Clients.

  2. Create an activation key with openSUSE Leap as a base channel and the other channels as child channels. For more information about activation keys, see Activation Keys.

  3. Modify a bootstrap script for the proxy. Add the GPG key to the ORG_GPG_KEY= parameter. For more information, see Registering openSUSE Clients. For more information about bootstrap scripts, see Register Clients with a Bootstrap Script.

  4. Bootstrap the client using the script. For more information, see Register Clients with a Bootstrap Script.

  5. Navigate to Salt  Keys and accept the key. When the key is accepted, the new proxy will show in Systems  Overview in the Recently Registered Systems section.

  6. Navigate to System Details  Software  Software Channels, and check that the proxy channel is selected.
