Systems Overview

If you select Main Menu  Systems  Overview, an overview of all Systems appears. From this page you can select systems to perform actions on and may create system profiles.

Overview Conventions

The Main Menu  Systems  Overview page displays a list of all your registered systems. Several columns provide information about each system:

Select box

Systems without a system type cannot be selected. To select systems, mark the appropriate check boxes. Selected systems are added to the System Set Manager, where actions can be carried out simultaneously on all systems in the set. For more information, see reference:systems/ssm-overview.adoc.

System

The name of the system specified during registration. The default name is the host name of the system. Clicking the name of a system displays its System Details page. For more information, see reference:systems/system-details.adoc.

  • Virtual Host — Virtual Host.

  • Virtual Guest — Virtual Guest.

  • Non-Virtual System — Non-Virtual System.

  • Unprovisioned System — Unprovisioned System.

Updates

Shows which type of update action is applicable to the system or confirms that the system is up-to-date. Some icons are linked to related tasks. For example, the standard Updates icon is linked to the Upgrade subtab of the packages list, while the Critical Updates icon links directly to the Software Patches page.

  • Check Circle — System is up-to-date.

  • Exclamation Circle — Critical patch (errata) available, update strongly recommended.

  • Warning — Updates available and recommended.

  • Question — System not checking in properly (for 24 hours or more).

  • Lock — System is locked; actions prohibited.

  • Rocket — System is being deployed using AutoYaST or Kickstart.

  • Clock — Updates have been scheduled.

  • Times — System not entitled to any update service.

Patches

Total number of patch alerts applicable to the system.

Packages

Total number of package updates for the system, including packages related to patch alerts and newer versions of packages not related to patch alerts. For example, if a client system that has an earlier version of a package installed gets subscribed to the appropriate base channel (such as SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP2), that channel may have an updated version of the package. If so, the package appears in the list of available package updates.

Package Conflict

If Uyuni identifies package updates for the system, but the package updater (such as Red Hat Update Agent or YaST) responds with a message such as "Your system is fully updated", a conflict likely exists in the system’s package profile or in the up2date configuration file. To resolve the conflict, either schedule a package list update or remove the packages from the package exceptions list. For more information, see reference:systems/system-details.adoc.

Configs

Total number of configuration files applicable to the system.

Base Channel

The primary channel for the system based on its operating system. For more information, see reference:software/channel-details.adoc.

System Type

Shows whether the system is managed and at what service level.

Links in the navigation bar below Main Menu  Systems enable you to select and view predefined sets of your systems. All of the options described above can be applied within these pages.

Overview

The Main Menu  Systems  Overview page provides a summary of your systems, including their status, number of associated patches (errata) and packages, and their so-called system type. Clicking the name of a system takes you to its System Details page. For more information, see reference:systems/system-details.adoc.

Clicking the View System Groups button at the top of the page takes you to a summary of your system groups. It identifies group status and displays the number of systems contained. Clicking the number of systems in a group takes you to the Main Menu  Systems  Systems Groups  Systems tab. Selecting a group name takes you to the Main Menu  Systems  System Groups  Group Details tab for that system group. For more information, see reference:systems/system-groups.adoc.

You can also click Use in SSM from the Systems  Overview  View System Groups page to go directly to the Systems  System Set Manager. For more information, see reference:systems/ssm-overview.adoc.
