RHEL and CentOS

Installation

BalanceNG on RHEL and CentOS (6 and 7) is installed with rpm as follows:

# rpm -i BalanceNG-4.100-1.x86_64.rpm
#

Starting BalanceNG on Reboot

For RHEL/CentOS 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
BalanceNG-4.100-1.x86_64
#

Deinstallation

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

# dpkg -r 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.
