Client Registration

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 Activation Keys.

Do not register the SUSE Manager Server base OS to SUSE Manager itself. The SUSE Manager Server base OS must be managed individually or by using another separate SUSE Manager Server.

To manage SUSE Manager Server Containers, use the mgradm tool.

After migrating from an older version of SUSE Manager to a newer version, we strongly recommend re-generating the bootstrap scripts before onboarding new systems to prevent any potential issues.
