How to register with Red Hat Network?


We have Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 running on all our machines and planning to make one machine as a YUM repository server. Using yum utility the rest of the RHEL machines should be able to get the latest patches/ packages.

Done a POC with the packages available in RHEL 5.3 DVD – created a local YUM repo server and distributed the packages to other client machines using yum install.

Info required:
1. How to get RHN license/subscription? How exactly our machine register with RHN? Give me some steps.
2. How to make one machine to connect to Red Hat Network to get the latest packages/patches and distribute to rest of the client machines?

Detailed instructions/steps are much helpful. Thanks in advance.
Please let me know the requirements to complete the above job.

You need to register each system with RHN. You can use the /usr/sbin/rhn_register utility to do this. Registered systems poll RHN using the rhnsd daemon and the /usr/sbin/rhn_check utility every so often. 4 hours is the default but this can be adjusted in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhnsd.
