baruwa-setup [options]


baruwa-setup is a utility program used to manage Baruwa Enterprise Edition servers. It simplifies the management of systems by collecting configuration information, performing configuration changes, storing configuration information, performing system updates and other system management tasks.

On the first ran a passphrase is set, this passphrase is used to encrypt the system configuration data that is collected. Ensure you set a strong passphrase and do not loose this passphrase as it is not possible to recover this passphrase.

All system updates and upgrades should be done using the baruwa-setup command. Do NOT use the yum command to perform upgrades as that will leave your system in an unconfigured inconsistent state.
