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  password,  because when in cloud mode this is all discovered by the
       client itself.

       You can avoid this all if you just rebundle 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
