Reinstall Registered Systems
The in-place reinstallation starts from the local client system. There is therefore no need for the client to be able to boot over network with PXE.
To reinstall a registered client in-place, you must define an autoinstallable distribution and an autoinstallation profile. For information, see Autoinstallable Distributions and Autoinstallation Profiles.
When you have defined the autoinstallation profile and distribution, you can perform the reinstallation.
In the SUSE Manager Web UI, navigate to, select the client to reinstall, and go to the subtab.
Select the autoinstallation profile that you prepared, select a proxy if needed, and click Schedule Autoinstallation and Finish.
If your client is a traditional client, and you have not configured osad, you need to wait until the job is fetched.
You can monitor progress of the installation by navigating to, or on the client directly. The client reboots, and in the boot menu selects a new choice called
The installation then proceeds over HTTP protocol.
