15.4. Redeeming Vendor Subscriptions
15.4.1. Redeeming Subscriptions through the GUI
- Launch Subscription Manager. For example:
[root@server ~]# subscription-manager-gui
- If necessary, register the system, as described in Section 15.2.1, “Registering from the GUI”.
- Open themenu in the top left of the window, and click the item.
- In the dialog window, enter the email address to send the notification to when the redemption is complete. Because the redemption process can take several minutes to contact the vendor and receive information about the pre-configured subscriptions, the notification message is sent through email rather than through the Subscription Manager dialog window.
- Click thebutton.
