Chapter 5. Automating RHEL system registration with a Kickstart file

You can use a Kickstart file with a system installer and an activation key to automatically register a system during the installation process. This is especially useful if you want to install and register multiple instances of RHEL. You can also use a single Kickstart file to install RHEL on multiple computers.

You can put an activation key into a shared Kickstart file to authenticate the processes without exposing username and password values. Additionally, administrators can preconfigure the activation key with selected system-level features, such as system purpose attributes. When an authorized user uses the activation key to authenticate the registration process, the selected features are automatically applied to the system with a single command.
