1.5 Registering an Oracle Linux 6 System

To register an Oracle Linux 6 system with ULN.

  1. Run the uln_register command.

    # uln_register

    Alternatively, if you use the GNOME graphical user desktop, select System > Administration > ULN Registration. You can also register your system with ULN if you configure networking when installing Oracle Linux 6.

  2. When prompted, enter your ULN user name, password, and customer support identifier (CSI).

  3. Enter a name for the system that will allow you to identify it on ULN, and choose whether to upload hardware and software profile data that allows ULN to select the appropriate packages for the system.

  4. If you have an Oracle Linux Premier Support account, you can choose to configure an Oracle Linux 6 system that is running a supported kernel to receive kernel updates from Oracle Ksplice. See Section 3.2, “Registering to Use Ksplice Uptrack”.

The yum-rhn-plugin is enabled and your system is subscribed to the appropriate software channels.

If you use a proxy server for Internet access, see Section 2.2.1, “Configuring Use of a Proxy Server”.
