1.1 About the rhn-setup Package

The tools to register with ULN from an Oracle Linux or Oracle VM system are provided in the rhn-setup package. This package is available on the ol6_latest and ol7_latest yum repositories that are available on the Oracle Linux yum server. This package is usually also installed by default on a new installation of an Oracle Linux system.

You can also manually download the RPMs from ULN, directly, by browsing the appropriate channel and architecture for your system.

If you intend to migrate from the RedHat Network (RHN) to ULN, you should replace the matching package with the version provided by Oracle, to obtain access to the additional tools that make this possible. See Section 3.3, “Migrating from RHN to ULN” for more information.
