setup(8)						      System Manager's Manual							  setup(8)

setup - invokes a system setup menu for console and workstation displays without graphics capabilities SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/setup DESCRIPTION
Use this application to do initial installation and configuration of your system. You must have superuser or root privileges to invoke the Setup menu. If your system does not have graphics capabilities, or if you are using a remote character-cell terminal window such as a PC terminal emu- lator, use the Setup menu to invoke the Custom Setup menu and use its various system setup applications to set up your Tru64 UNIX system for general use. In this release, invoking Setup runs the Custom Setup interfaces, which are character-cell variants of the SysMan tools that you can use to configure and manage your system. These interfaces can also be invoked in a window environment on a PC or on other X-compliant window environments. The available menu options depend on which subsets were installed during system installation. Refer to the Methods chapter of the System Administration for additional information. In previous releases, invoking the Setup menu provided access to scripts which prompted you to enter configuration information, such as a TCP/IP address during network configuration (netsetup). These scripts enabled you to set up subsystems -- networking, printers, and mail, add user accounts, install Product Authorization Keys (PAKs), and so on. If you require the original scripts to support your site-specific setup procedures, you can install the scripts as described in the rele- vant reference page for a script. Refer to the Installation Guide For information on installing the OSRETIREDxxx subsets. Using Quick Setup If your system has graphics capabilities, the preferred method to perform system setup is through the Custom Setup Checklist as follows: After a full installation, the Quick Setup interface is displayed automatically. Quick Setup is a step-by-step procedure that prompts you for the basic information required to configure your system for use. This option is particularly convenient and fast for a desktop system, and for users who are not very experienced in configuring systems. Note that Quick Setup is primarily used to configure the network and related subsystems. You may also need to manually configure other subsystems or add options later. (For example, If your system is a client in a client-server environment, you may need to re-run certain applications later to add alternative host servers.) To do this, you use the Custom Setup described in the next section. At any other time after installation, the Custom Setup Checklist is provided for ini- tial configuration or modification of a subsystem. You can still opt for an automated Quick Setup, or choose Custom Setup for larger system configurations or specific site requirements. Custom Setup allows you to select applications from the checklist by clicking on the corre- sponding icon. When you choose an application, the appropriate application from the Custom Setup menu will be invoked. To invoke the Custom Setup Checklist from the command line, enter /usr/sbin/checklist. Note that online help is available when using the interfaces, and you should refer to the appropriate user guides in the documentation set for additional information. EXAMPLES
This example invokes the Setup menu from the root system prompt: # /usr/sbin/setup A menu similar to the following is displayed: Tru64 UNIX: Custom Setup Tru64 UNIX Custom Setup helps you set up your system. Quick Setup leads you through a set of steps to set up a typical UNIX system. This includes networking, user services, time services, printers, and other basics. Custom Setup examines your system and lists the relevant tasks for configuring your computer. These tasks are listed in the order most fre- quently performed You can run Quick Setup to get a basic configuration and then use Custom Setup for any atypical configuration settings. 1) Quick Setup 2) Custom Setup 3) Exit Please enter your selection: If you select Quick Setup, an Initializing message is displayed for several seconds, followed by the first prompt screen: Tru64 UNIX: Quick Setup Quick Setup helps you set up a typical UNIX system. It leads you step by step through the following common tasks: ****************************************************************************** Step 1: Enter basic license information Step 2: Set up the system's Network Interface Card (NIC) Step 3: Set up static network routing Step 4: Specify a Domain Name Service (DNS/BIND) server Step 5: Specify a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server Step 6: Specify a Network Information Service (NIS) server Step 7: Set up Network File System (NFS) services Step 8: Specify an E-Mail server Step 9: Specify a default printer and its server ****************************************************************************** You can skip any step. No action is performed until you review and approve a summary of the setup at the end of Quick Setup. Click on "Details..." to see the information Quick Setup requests. Click on "Next >" to start setting up this system. ================ <CTRL-G> FOR KEYBOARD HELP ================== [Next >] Details... Cancel Help If you select Custom Setup, a menu similar to the following is displayed: Tru64 UNIX: Custom Setup Use the following menu to set up your system and network.
