24.1. RHN Registration

Before you can access service and software maintenance information, and the support documentation included in your subscription, you must activate your subscription by registering with Red Hat. Registration includes these simple steps:

The first time you boot your installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you are prompted to register with Red Hat using the Setup Agent. If you follow the prompts during the Setup Agent, you can complete the registration steps and activate your subscription.

If you can not complete registration during the Setup Agent (which requires network access), you can alternatively complete the Red Hat registration process online at http://www.redhat.com/register/.
