6.6 Enabling Remote Configuration Manually

To install and configure remote configuration manually:

  1. Log in as root on the client system.

  2. Use yum to install the rhncfg, rhncfg-actions, and rhncfg-client packages:

    # yum install rhncfg rhncfg-actions rhncfg-client
  3. Use the rhn-actions-control command to configure the permitted remote actions, for example:

    # rhn-actions-control --enable-all

    The --report option lists the remote actions that the client permits.

    # rhn-actions-control --report
    deploy is enabled
    diff is enabled
    upload is enabled
    mtime_upload is enabled
    run is enabled

    For more information, see the rhn-actions-control(8) manual page.
