How to enable Landscape#
You can register a machine with Landscape via the
pro enable landscape
command. You can register interactively for convenience, or non-interactively
which is useful for hands-off automation.
To register a machine, you’ll need, at minimum, your Landscape Account Name and a name for the machine you are registering. If you’re not using Landscape SaaS (https://landscape.canonical.com), then you’ll also need the URL of your hosted Landscape server.

sudo pro enable landscape

sudo pro enable landscape --assume-yes -- --account-name <my-account> --computer-title <my-computer>
That command will install
landscape-client and pass the provided parameters
-- to the
landscape-config tool to automatically register the
After successfully running
pro enable landscape, either interactively
or non-interactively, an administrator of your Landscape account will need to go
to the “Pending Computers” page in Landscape to accept the machine you just
And that’s it! The machine should now appear in the Landscape dashboard for management.
