About This Guide

SUSE Manager enables you to efficiently manage a set of Linux systems and keep them up-to-date. It provides automated and cost-effective software management, asset management, system provisioning, and monitoring capabilities. SUSE Manager is compatible with {rh} Satellite Server and offers seamless management of both SUSE Linux Enterprise and Red Hat Enterprise Linux client systems.

Note: SUSE Manager Version Information

In this manual if not other specified, SUSE Manager version 3.2 is assumed and this version is required if a feature is discussed. SUSE Manager 3.2 and SUSE Manager 3.2 Proxy were originally released as a SLES 12 SP3 extension. With the next maintenance update (December 2018), SUSE Manager 3.2 and SUSE Manager 3.2 Proxy will be based on SLES 12 SP4 and support SLE 12 SP4 clients officially. In the following sections and chapters, it is highly recommended to use SLE 12 SP4 instead of SP3. Whenever features of the SUSE Manager 3.2 host operating system are documented and not other specified version 12 SP4 is assumed.

This manual explains the features of the Web interface and is intended for SUSE Manager administrators and administrators with restricted roles for specific tasks. On certain topics we also provide background information, while some chapters contain links to additional documentation resources. The latter include additional documentation available on the installed system as well as documentation on the Internet.

For an overview of the documentation available for your product and the latest documentation updates, refer to Available Documentation or to the following section.

HTML versions of the manuals are also available from the Help menu of the SUSE Manager Web interface.

Note: Obtaining the Release Notes

Although this manual reflects the most current information possible, read the SUSE Manager Release Notes for information that may not have been available prior to the finalization of the documentation. The release notes can be found at SUSE Manager Release Notes.
