BalanceNG on RHEL is installed with rpm as follows:
The RHEL distribution package is supported for RHEL 6,7 and 8.
# rpm -i BalanceNG-4.100-1.x86_64.rpm #
For RHEL there’s no further action, the startup scripts are in place.
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 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.
