SUSE Manager Proxy Registration

SUSE Manager Proxy systems are installed with the Unified Installer and registered to SUSE Manager using bootstrap script or Web UI.

After the client is succesfully bootstrapped, it needs to be configured as SUSE Manager Proxy.

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

Procedure: Registering the Proxy
  1. Create an activation key based on the SLE-Product-SUSE-Manager-Proxy-4.3-Pool base channel. For more information about activation keys, see Activation Keys.

    Before you can select the correct child channels while creating the activation key, ensure you have completely downloaded the SUSE Manager Proxy 5.0 channel and all the recommended and mandatory SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP5 channels.

  2. From the Child Channels listing select the recommended channels by clicking the include recommended icon:

    • SLE-Module-Basesystem15-SP5-Pool

    • SLE-Module-Basesystem15-SP5-Updates

    • SLE-Module-Server-Applications15-SP5-Pool

    • SLE-Module-Server-Applications15-SP5-Updates

    • SLE-Module-SUSE-Manager-Proxy-4.3-Pool

    • SLE-Module-SUSE-Manager-Proxy-4.3-Updates

      The SLE-Product-SUSE-Manager-Proxy-4.3-Updates channel is mandatory.

  3. To bootstrap a proxy, use the bootstrap script. For more information about bootstrap scripts, see Register Clients with a Bootstrap Script.

  4. Alternatively, in the SUSE Manager Web UI, navigate to System  Bootstrapping.

  5. Navigate to System Details  Software  Software Channels, and check that the four proxy channels (Pool and Updates for SLE-PRODUCT and SLE-MODULE) plus the recommended channels are selected. SLE-PRODUCT-Pool must be the base channel and the others are child channels.
