Register Suse Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) via command line

To speed up your new Suse Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) install process and register your new box with Novell Center I suggest using a quick command line:

suse_register -a email=”your@emailaddresshere.com” -a regcode-sles=”REGCODE”

REGCODE is your Suse registration code (e.g. Order code), usually consists of 14 characters.

You must be root to execute this command and make sure you network configuration is set-up and your server on-line. After registration you can start server updating process via Yast or rug command line. Good luck!
