Register and Update Your Oracle Linux OS

Before You Begin

The Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN) is a comprehensive resource for Oracle Linux support subscribers, offering access to Linux software patches, updates and fixes, along with information on updates and support policies. Licensed Oracle customesr with an active Oracle Linux support subscription receive an Oracle Linux CSI (customer support identifier) number. Use this number to register your server on ULN. Registration requires a CSI number and a valid email address.

  1. If you do not already have one, set up your ULN account.

    Use your email address and CSI and create a password for the account.

  2. Once you have an account, run the command below on the server as the root user in a terminal window or on the command line:


    The uln_register wizard collects machine information and uploads it to Oracle.

    The above command selects the default channel, ol6_<arch>_latest. The _latest channels provide RPMs for all the packages in the distribution, including those errata also provided in the _patch channels (that is. the version of any RPM downloadable on the _latest channels is always the most recent available). You can subscribe to other channels using the web interface, after you have registered.
