Chapter 10. Registering systems to Red Hat Subscription Management

If you are using Red Hat Subscription Management as the data collection tool, register your RHEL systems to Red Hat Subscription Management. Systems that are registered to Red Hat Subscription Management can be found and tracked by the subscriptions service.

Some RHEL images can use the autoregistration feature of the RHEL management bundle and do not have to be manually registered to Red Hat Subscription Management. However, the following specific requirements must be met:

  • The image must be based on RHEL 8.4 and later or 8.3.1 and later.
  • The image must be an Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure cloud services image.
  • The image can be a Cloud Access Gold Images image or a custom image, such as an image built with Image Builder. If it is a custom image, the subscription-manager tool in the image must be configured to use autoregistration.
  • The image must be associated with an AWS or Azure source, as configured from the Sources menu of the Hybrid Cloud Console, with the RHEL management bundle selected for activation.
  • The image must be provisioned after this source is created.

RHEL systems that do not meet these requirements must be registered manually to be tracked by the subscriptions service.

Procedure

  1. Register your RHEL systems to Red Hat Subscription Management, if not already registered. For more information about this process, see the following information:
