Registering clients is the first step after installing SUSE Manager, and most of the time you spend with SUSE Manager will be spent on maintaining those clients.

SUSE Manager is compatible with a range of client technologies: you can install traditional or Salt clients, running SUSE Linux Enterprise or another Linux operating system, with a range of hardware options.

For a complete list of supported clients and features, see client-configuration:supported-features.adoc.

This guide discusses how to register and configure different clients, both manually and automatically.
