NAME

       cobbler-register - create a cobbler system record

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       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.

DETAILS

       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
       database.

       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 --hostname 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.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       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
       /etc/profile.d/cobbler.{csh,sh}.

ADDITIONAL

       Reading the cobbler manpage, the koan manpage, and fedorahosted.org/cobbler is highly
       recommended.
