3.4. Registering your System

To install the Red Hat OpenStack Platform director, 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:
    $ sudo subscription-manager register
  2. Find the entitlement pool for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform director.
    $ sudo subscription-manager list --available --all
    
  3. Use the pool ID located in the previous step to attach the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 7 entitlements:
    $ sudo subscription-manager attach --pool=pool_id
  4. Disable all default repositories then enable the required Red Hat Enterprise Linux repositories:
    $ sudo subscription-manager repos --disable=*
    $ sudo subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-rpms --enable=rhel-7-server-extras-rpms --enable=rhel-7-server-openstack-7.0-rpms --enable=rhel-7-server-openstack-7.0-director-rpms --enable rhel-7-server-rh-common-rpms
    
    These repositories contain packages the director installation requires.

    Important

    Only enable the repositories listed above. Additional repositories can cause package and software conflicts. Do not enable any additional repositories.
  5. Perform an update on your system to make sure you have the latest base system packages:
    $ sudo yum update -y
    $ sudo reboot
The system is now ready for the director installation.
