Register Clients to a Proxy

Proxy servers can act as a broker and package cache for both Salt and traditional clients. Registering clients to a proxy is similar to registering them directly to the SUSE Manager Server, with a few key differences.

These sections contain information on registering Salt clients to a proxy using the Web UI, commands on the command line, or a bootstrap script. There is also information on registering traditional clients using a bootstrap script.

Within the Web UI, proxy pages show information about both Salt and traditional clients. You can see a list of clients that are connected to a proxy by clicking the name of the proxy in Systems  System List  Proxy, then select the Proxy subtab of the Details tab.

A list of chained proxies for a Salt client can be seen by clicking the name of the client in Systems  All, then select the Connection subtab of the Details tab.

If you decide to move any of your clients between proxies or the server you need to repeat the registration process from the beginning.
