Client Registration Overview

There are several ways to register clients to your SUSE Manager Server. This section covers the various available methods. It also contains information specific to the operating system you intend to run on the client.

Before you begin, check that:

  • The client has the date and time synchronized correctly with the SUSE Manager Server before registration.

  • You have created an activation key. For more information about creating activation keys, see client-configuration:activation-keys.adoc.

Do not register the 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.
