setup - invokes a system Setup menu for systems without graphics capabilities  




If your system does not have graphics capabilities, use the Setup menu to access a set of menu-driven, text-based system setup applications to set up your Tru64 UNIX system for general use. The Setup menu provides access to the applications that let you set up networking, printers, and mail, add user accounts, install Product Authorization Keys (PAKs), and so on. You must have superuser or root privileges to invoke the Setup menu.

The applications available on the Setup menu differ depending upon the software subsets that were loaded during the installation. If the software subset that supports an application was not installed, the application appears on the menu without an option number and is not available.

The applications appear on the Setup menu in the general order in which Digital recommends them to be run. For example, if you want to set up the system in a networked environment, the first application to invoke is the Network Configuration Application followed by the BIND Configuration Application, the NIS - Network Information Service application, and the NFS Configuration Application. If you do not plan to run your system in a networked environment, the first task you should perform is to load and register the Product Authorization Keys (PAKs) that came with your system by using the License Manager application.

If your system has graphics capabilities, the preferred method to perform system setup is through the SysMan Configuration Checklist which is invoked in one of the following ways: After a full installation, the SysMan Configuration Checklist displays automatically. Select an application from the checklist by clicking on the corresponding icon. To invoke the SysMan Configuration Checklist from the command line, enter /usr/sbin/checklist. To invoke the SysMan Configuration Checklist from the Common Desktop Environment (CDE) front panel: Click on the Application Manager icon on the CDE front panel Double click on the System_Admin application group icon Double click on the SysMan Configuration Checklist application icon  


This example invokes the Setup menu from the root system prompt:

# /usr/sbin/setup A menu similar to the following is displayed: Use this menu to set up your system and network. When you select an item, you will be asked a series of questions.
