setup(8)							      setup(8)

       setup  -	 invokes  a system setup menu for console and workstation dis‐
       plays without graphics capabilities


       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 emulator,
       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

       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 environ‐
       ments.  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 relevant
       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 per‐
       form 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 sys‐
       tems. 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  initial
       configuration  or modification of a subsystem. You can still opt for an
       automated Quick Setup, or choose Custom Setup for larger system config‐
       urations	 or  specific  site  requirements.  Custom Setup allows you to
       select applications from the checklist by clicking on the corresponding
       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.

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

       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, print‐
       ers, and other basics.

       Custom Setup examines your system and lists the relevant tasks for con‐
       figuring	 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  Cus‐
       tom 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 Informa‐
       tion Service (NIS) server Step 7: Set up Network File System (NFS) ser‐
       vices  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.
