5.7. Registering Host Systems to a Red Hat Satellite Capsule Server

Prerequisite

Client system must be configured for registration. The following chapters in the Red Hat Satellite User Guide can assist with configuration:

  2. Automated Configuration
  3. Manual Configuration
  4. Creating a New Activation Key
Systems can be registered to the parent host while using a Satellite Capsule as a content source. Register the system to the Satellite 6 server through subscription-manager but reference the Satellite Capsule by using the --baseurl flag provided by Subscription Manager using /pulp/repos as the prefix.
# subscription-manager register --org [org_name] --activationkey [your_activation_key] --baseurl https://satcapsule.example.com/pulp/repos
