Usage

Register Node with Hosted RHN (rhn.redhat.com)

Securely with encrypted data bag: * Create wrapper cookbook which: * Sets node['rhn']['register'] to false * Reads encrypted data bag * Calls default recipe (or customize) * Calls rhn_system LWRP

Less securely with attributes: * Set node['rhn']['username'] and node['rhn']['password'] * Add recipe[rhn] to your run_list

Register Node with RHN Satellite (satellite.example.com)

  • Add at least one activation key to node['rhn']['activation_keys']
  • Set your RHN Satellite FQDN in node['rhn']['hostname']
  • Add recipe[rhn] to your run_list

end

Register with hosted RHN or Satellite with custom profile name:
