Ubuntu Pro (client)

The Ubuntu Pro client is a command-line utility (a CLI) that manages the different offerings of your Ubuntu Pro subscription. In UP4W, this executable is used within each of the managed WSL distros to enable Ubuntu Pro services within that distro.

This executable is provided as part of the ubuntu-advantage-tools package, which comes pre-installed in your Ubuntu WSL distros.


Pro-attaching a machine (e.g. a desktop computer, a WSL distro, a server, a virtual machine, etc.) means to provide your Ubuntu Pro token to the Ubuntu Pro client, so that it can enable Ubuntu Pro services.
