7.2. Setting up Guests

All virtual systems on the hypervisor need to be registered to the Satellite to make sure that virt-who links these guests to the hypervisor correctly.
To register a guest on the VMWare ESX hypervisor to the Satellite:
  1. Download the SSL cert from the Satellite to the guest system:
    # rpm -Uvh https://satellite_hostname.example.com/pub/rhn-org-trusted-ssl-cert-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
    
  2. Edit the following entries in the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date:
    serverURL=https://satellite.hostname.example.com/XMLRPC
    sslCACert=/usr/share/rhn/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT
    
  3. Register the guest to the Satellite by running the command:
    # rhnreg_ks --username sat_username --password sat_password
