30.3. Starting Initial Setup Manually

Once you once finished the Initial Setup, the application does not start again when you boot the system. To manually start the Initial Setup on system boot:
  1. Enable the service:
    # systemctl enable initial-setup.service
  2. Optionally, to display all menu options, including the ones previously set, create an empty /.unconfigured file to start Initial Setup in reconfiguration mode:
    # touch /.unconfigured
    Note that, regardless of this setting, the license agreement entry is not displayed again if you previously accepted it.
  3. Reboot the system.


The initial-setup-gui (graphical mode) or initial-setup (text mode) packages must be installed for to run Initial Setup.
