15.6.2. Setting Service Levels Through the Command Line

download PDF
A general service level preference can be set using the service-level --set command.

Example 15.5. Setting a Service Level Preference

First, list the available service levels for the system, using the --list option with the service-level command.
[root@server ~]# subscription-manager service-level --list
          Available Service Levels
Then, set the desired level for the system.
[root@server ~]# subscription-manager service-level --set=self-support
Service level set to: self-support
The current setting for the local system is shown with the --show option:
[root#server ~]# subscription-manager service-level --show
Current service level: self-support
A service level preference can be defined when a subscription operation is being run (such as registering a system or attaching subscriptions after registration). This can be used to override a system preference. Both the register and subscribe commands have the --servicelevel option to set a preference for that action.

Example 15.6. Autoattaching Subscriptions with a Premium Service Level

[root#server ~]# subscription-manager subscribe --auto --servicelevel Premium
Service level set to: Premium
Installed Product Current Status:
ProductName:            Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server
Status:                 Subscribed


The --servicelevel option requires the --autosubscribe option (for register) or --auto option (for subscribe). It cannot be used when attaching a specified pool or when importing a subscription.
