Retail Uyuni Branch Server

This section covers SUSE Manager for Retail Branch Server installation and setup, using these procedures:

  • 添加软件通道

  • 检查同步状态

  • 在客户端上信任 GPG 密钥

  • Register the Branch Server and Terminals as Clients

The SUSE Manager for Retail Branch Server is a SUSE Manager Proxy with additional Retail features. For proxy installation procedures, see 在 openSUSE Leap 中安装 SUSE Manager Proxy and Uyuni Proxy 设置.

Then continue with the following sections.

1. 添加软件通道

Before you register SUSE Manager branch servers and terminals to your SUSE Manager Server, check that you have the openSUSE product enabled, and the required channels are fully synchronized.


Table 1. openSUSE Channels - CLI
OS Version Base Channel Client Channel Updates Channel Non-OSS Channel Non-OSS Updates Channel Backports Updates Channel SLE Updates Channel

openSUSE Leap 15.4








  1. 在 SUSE Manager 服务器上的命令提示符下,以 root 身份使用 spacewalk-common-channels 命令添加相应的通道:

    spacewalk-common-channels \
    <基础通道名称> \
    <子通道名称 1> \
    <子通道名称 2> \
    ... <子通道名称 n>
  2. 同步通道:

    mgr-sync refresh --refresh-channels

2. 检查同步状态

  1. 在 SUSE Manager Web UI 中,导航到软件  管理  通道,然后单击与软件源关联的通道。

  2. 导航到软件源选项卡,然后单击同步并选中同步状态

  1. 在 SUSE Manager 服务器上的命令提示符处,以 root 身份使用 tail 命令检查同步日志文件:

    tail -f /var/log/rhn/reposync/<channel-label>.log
  2. Each child channel generates its own log during the synchronization progress. You will need to check all the base and child channel log files to be sure that the synchronization is complete.

openSUSE 通道可能会非常大。同步所需的时间可能会长达数小时。

3. 在客户端上信任 GPG 密钥

By default, some operating systems do not trust the GPG key for the SUSE Manager client tools. The clients can be successfully bootstrapped without the GPG key being trusted. However, you will not be able to install new client tool packages or update them until the keys are trusted.

过程:在客户端上信任 GPG 密钥
  1. On the SUSE Manager Server, at the command prompt, check the contents of the /srv/www/htdocs/pub/ directory. This directory contains all available public keys. Take a note of the key that applies to the client you are registering.

  2. 打开相关的引导脚本,找到 ORG_GPG_KEY= 参数并添加所需的密钥。例如:

      You do not need to delete any previously stored keys.
    . If you are bootstrapping clients from the {productname} {webui}, you will need to use a Salt state to trust the key.
      Create the Salt state and assign it to the organization.
      You can then use an activation key and configuration channels to deploy the key to the clients.

4. Create Activation Key for a Branch Server and the Retail Terminal Images

The branch server is based on the SUSE Manager Proxy. Its activation key must contain these child channels:

  • openSUSE Leap 15.5 Updates (x86_64)

  • Uyuni Client Tools for openSUSE Leap 15.5 (x86_64)

  • Uyuni Proxy Stable for openSUSE Leap 15.5 (x86_64)

The activation key for retail terminal images based on openSUSE Leap 15.5 must contain these child channels:

  • openSUSE Leap 15.5 Updates (x86_64)

  • Uyuni Client Tools for openSUSE Leap 15.5 (x86_64)

For more information about creating activation keys, see 激活密钥.

5. Register the Branch Server and Terminals as Clients

You register both the branch server and the terminals as openSUSE clients. To register your openSUSE clients, you need a bootstrap repository. By default, bootstrap repositories are automatically created, and regenerated daily for all synchronized products. You can manually create the bootstrap repository from the command prompt, using this command:

mgr-create-bootstrap-repo --with-custom-channels

5.1. Register the Branch Server

A retail branch server is registered as an openSUSE proxy. The proxy can be bootstrapped using the Web UI, or at the command prompt. Ensure you use the activation key you created for the proxy.

For more information about proxies, see SUSE Manager Proxy 注册. For more information about activation keys, see 激活密钥.

Procedure: Setting Up the Uyuni Proxy
  1. Check that the Uyuni Proxy Stable for openSUSE Leap 15.5 (x86_64) channel is assigned to the proxy on the system profile page.

  2. At the command prompt on the proxy, as root, install the proxy pattern:

    zypper in -t pattern uyuni_proxy
  3. Finalize the proxy setup:
    [command]```` is an interactive script.
    For more information about the proxy setup script, see xref:installation-and-upgrade:uyuni-proxy-setup.adoc#uyuni-proxy-setup-confproxy[].
  4. OPTIONAL: If you want to use the same system also as a build host, navigate to the client’s system profile and check OS Image Build Host as a Add-On System Types.

  5. Configure the proxy to become a branch server. On the SUSE Manager for Retail Server, for example, run:

    retail_branch_init <branch_server_minion_id> --dedicated-nic eth1 \
        --branch-ip \
        --netmask \
        --dyn-range \
        --server-domain \
        --branch-prefix uyuni
    For additional options,  use the [command]``retail_branch_init --help`` command.
