Problem adding SLES 12 machines to SuMa 2.1


I have a couple of SuSE 12 machines what I want to add to SuMA, but they are added as name “” and with ip “” instead of their normal hostname and IP.

I use " mgr-ssh-push-init --client –register /srv/www/htdocs/pub/bootstrap/ --tunnel" to register them.
The bootstrap script ends succesfully, and I can log into the machine and use zypper without any problems.
hostname -s and hostname -f gives correct output on the client.

/var/log/up2date have something I think might be the issue:
[Tue Apr 21 16:41:34 2015] up2date Warning: haldaemon or messagebus service not running. Cannot probe hardware and DMI information.

but dbus-daemon is running (hald is not available on SLES 12 I think)

Christer, please open a support ticket for your problem to have it routed to engineering.

The warning about haldaemon is known, harmless, and will be fixed in the next update. It’s about probing hardware details, not about getting the hostname.


Did that, but I found the solution myself.
/etc/hostname had a extra blank line. After I removed that, everything was good!
