3.2 Registering an Oracle Linux System With ULN

To register an Oracle Linux 6 or Oracle Linux 7 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 on Oracle Linux 6 or Applications > System Tools > ULN Registration on Oracle Linux 7. You can also register your system with ULN if you configure networking when installing Oracle Linux 6 or Oracle Linux 7.

  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 or Oracle Linux 7 system that is running a supported kernel to receive kernel updates from Oracle Ksplice.

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 4.3, “Configuring the Use of a Proxy Server”.

For information about registering to use Ksplice, see the Oracle Linux Ksplice User's Guide.
