NAME

       landscape-config - configure the Landscape management client

SYNOPSIS

       landscape-config [options]

DESCRIPTION

       Before  using  the  landscape-client  it  must  be  configured  with  account and computer
       information that is transmitted to the Landscape server  when  the  client  connects.  The
       registration can be performed with or without user interaction.

       Running  the  landscape-config program without arguments will start the program, prompting
       you for the necessary information to run the client.  Optionally you can provide  command-
       line arguments (detailed below) to specify default responses.

       You  will  be  told  if  the  registration  was  successful or if an error occurred.  When
       registration is successful Landscape is configured and running on your system. Errors  can
       occur if you provide incorrect registration details or if there are network issues. In the
       latter case, the client will keep trying to complete the registration in the background.

CLOUD

       Landscape has some cloud features that become  available  when  the  EC2  or  UEC  machine
       instance  was  started using Landscape and the AMI is one of the official ones provided in
       the Web user interface. We call these instances "Landscape enabled", because they  contain
       a  pre-configured  landscape-client  installed  in  them  which  will register the running
       instance automatically with Landscape as soon as it starts up.

       You can deploy your own AMI, but if you wish the instance to  become  "Landscape  managed"
       you need to take a few steps:

       ·  make sure the cloud is created in Landscape

       ·  either  add "CLOUD=1" to /etc/default/landscape-client or use the --cloud switch in the
          landscape-config(1) command line

       ·  make sure the client is configured to start at boot (i.e., the  /etc/default/landscape-
          client has the line "RUN=1")

       There  is  no  need  to further configure the /etc/landscape/client.conf file with details
       such as account or key, because when in cloud mode this is all discovered  by  the  client
       itself.

       You  can  avoid  this  all if you just re-bundle the AMIs we provide.  landscape-client is
       already configured and prepared for the cloud in them.

EXAMPLES

       Register a machine for the first time,  or  reconfigure  an  already  registered  machine,
       interactively. Command line parameters suppress interaction for provided values.

         landscape-config

       Register  a  machine  for  the  first  time, or reconfigure an already registered machine,
       without requiring user interaction. The  client  will  be  configured  to  start  on  boot
       automatically:

         landscape-config --silent -a account-name -p secret -t `hostname`

       Register  a  machine  with  the  script  execution  plugin enabled, without requiring user
       interaction:

         landscape-config --silent -a account-name -p secret -t `hostname` --script-users nobody,landscape,root

       Register a machine with some tags:

         landscape-config --silent -a account-name -p secret -t `hostname` --tags=server,www

       To disable a client, stopping current instances and disabling start at bootup:

         landscape-config --disable
