1 Registering SLES Edit source

To get technical support and product updates, you need to register and activate your SUSE product with the SUSE Customer Center. It is recommended to register during the installation, since this will enable you to install the system with the latest updates and patches available. However, if you are offline or want to skip the registration step, you can register at any time later from the installed system.

Note
Note

In case your organization does not provide a local registration server, registering SLES requires a SUSE account. In case you do not have a SUSE account yet, go to the SUSE Customer Center home page (https://scc.suse.com/) to create one.

1.1 Registering SLES during the Installation Edit source

To register your system, provide the E-mail address associated with the SUSE account you or your organization uses to manage subscriptions. In case you do not have a SUSE account yet, go to the SUSE Customer Center home page (https://scc.suse.com/) to create one.

Enter the Registration Code you received with your copy of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Proceed with Next to start the registration process.

By default the system is registered with the SUSE Customer Center. However, if your organization provides local registration servers you can either choose one from the list of auto-detected servers or provide the URL at Register System via local SMT Server. Proceed with Next.

During the registration, the online update repositories will be added to your installation setup. When finished, you can choose whether to install the latest available package versions from the update repositories. This ensures that SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is installed with the latest security updates available. If you choose No, all packages will be installed from the installation media. Proceed with Next.

If the system was successfully registered during installation, YaST will disable repositories from local installation media such as CD/DVD or flash disks when the installation has been completed. This prevents problems if the installation source is no longer available and ensures that you always get the latest updates from the online repositories.

1.2 Registering SLES from the Installed System Edit source

1.2.1 Registering from the Installed System Edit source

If you have skipped the registration during the installation or want to re-register your system, you can register the system at any time using the YaST module Product Registration or the command line tool SUSEConnect.

Registering with YaST

To register the system start YaST › Software › Product Registration. Provide the E-mail address associated with the SUSE account you or your organization uses to manage subscriptions. In case you do not have a SUSE account yet, go to the SUSE Customer Center homepage (https://scc.suse.com/) to create one.

Enter the Registration Code you received with your copy of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Proceed with Next to start the registration process.

By default the system is registered with the SUSE Customer Center. However, if your organization provides local registration servers you can either choose one form the list of auto-detected servers or provide the URl at Register System via local SMT Server. Proceed with Next.

Registering with SUSEConnect

To register from the command line, use the command

tux > sudo SUSEConnect -r REGISTRATION_CODE -e EMAIL_ADDRESS

Replace REGISTRATION_CODE with the Registration Code you received with your copy of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Replace EMAIL_ADDRESS with the E-mail address associated with the SUSE account you or your organization uses to manage subscriptions. To register with a local registration server, also provide the URL to the server:

tux > sudo SUSEConnect -r REGISTRATION_CODE -e EMAIL_ADDRESS \
--url "https://suse_register.example.com/"

1.3 Registering SLES during Automated Deployment Edit source

If you deploy your instances automatically using AutoYaST, you can register the system during the installation by providing the respective information in the AutoYaST control file. Refer to https://documentation.suse.com/sles/15-SP1/single-html/SLES-autoyast/#CreateProfile-Register for details.
