3.2. Subscribing to the Required Channels Using Subscription Manager

To install the RHEL OpenStack Platform installer, first register the host system using Red Hat Subscription Manager, and subscribe to the required channels.

Procedure 3.1. Subscribing to the Required Channels Using Subscription Manager

  1. Register your system with the Content Delivery Network, entering your Customer Portal user name and password when prompted:
    # subscription-manager register
  2. Find entitlement pools containing the channels required to install the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform Installer.
    # subscription-manager list --available | grep -A8 "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server"
    # subscription-manager list --available | grep -A8 "Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform"
  3. Use the pool identifiers located in the previous step to attach the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform entitlements:
    # subscription-manager attach --pool=pool_id
  4. Enable the required channels:
    # subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-rpms
