For RHEL there’s no further action, the startup scripts are in place.

Package Information

For querying if BalanceNG is installed, and – if yes – showing exactly which release is installed execute the rpm command with the -q option as follows:

# rpm -q BalanceNG


Deinstallation of BalanceNG is straightforward (just specifying BalanceNG is sufficient):

# rpm -e BalanceNG

Any existing configuration files like /etc/bng.conf will not be deleted by this rpm package removal. This allows to upgrade BalanceNG easily without touching the BalanceNG configuration files in any way.
