Client Registration Methods

There are several ways to register clients to your SUSE Manager Server.

The client must have the date and time synchronized correctly with the SUSE Manager Server before registration.

You must create an activation key first, to use bootstrap script or command line method. For more information about creating activation keys, see client-configuration:activation-keys.adoc.

Do not register a SUSE Manager Server to itself. The SUSE Manager Server must be managed individually or by using another separate SUSE Manager Server. For more information about using multiple servers, see large-deployments:multi-server.adoc.
