Registering a RedHat Server

Latest response

We have a subscription number "5462661" that we would like to use for a Virtual server running RedHat 7.5. Not sure how to apply this subscription to the new virtual server. Thanks

Hopefully this knowledge base article will help If the system is not connected to a network there are methods for an offline subscription

Hi Wes,

Make sure that the subscription isn't already being in use. If it is, un-register the system that is using it.

sudo subscription-manager remove --all
sudo subscription-manager unregister
sudo subscription-manager clean

Then, on the new server - why RHEL 7.5 and not 7.6 by the way ? :) - execute the following commands :

sudo subscription-manager register
sudo subscription-manager refresh
sudo subscription-manager attach --auto

Regards,
Christian
