cobbler-register - create a cobbler system record


cobbler-register [--server=<cobbler.example.org>] --profile=<cobbler-profile-name>


Running cobbler-register on a system will create a cobbler system record for that system
on a remote cobbler server. No changes will be made on the system itself.


When installing new machines into a cobbler managed datacenter/lab, it helps to not have
to manually enter in the network information for those systems. Using cobbler register
either from a kickstart or a live environment (or even SSH) can help seed the cobbler

Network information is discovered automatically for all physical interfaces. cobbler-
register will attempt to discover the hostname, though if 'localhost.localdomain' is
found, it will have to use some other data for the cobbler system record. This is
probably not what you want, so specify --fqdn in this instance to override that
registration value.

For this to work, the "register_new_installs" setting must be enabled on the remote
cobbler server.

When the remote system record is created, for safety reasons, it will be set in Cobbler to
be "netboot disabled". Use "cobbler system edit --name=foo --netboot-enabled=1" to set
the machine to reinstall, where "foo" is the name of the new system record.


cobbler-register respects the COBBLER_SERVER variable to specify the cobbler server to
use. This is a convenient way to avoid using the --server option. This variable is set
automatically on systems installed via cobbler, assuming standard kickstart templates are
used. If you need to change this on an installed system, edit


Reading the cobbler manpage, the koan manpage, and www.cobblerd.org is highly recommended.
