Error: Setup Command not found in CentOS VPS [Solved]

Hi, I was using setup command in one of my RHEL machine to configure firewall, network and system services. Recently, I bought a CentOS vps, which doesn’t seem to have setup command installed. I tried ‘yum install setup‘, but the command terminated with a message ‘Nothing to do’. Can you let me know how to install setup command on CentOS?

Thanks, kv


Below are the steps to install ‘setup‘ tool:

yum install setuptool -y

The above command will install setup tool, but you’ll have to install network, firewall, services and keyboard packages as well. Here’s how you can do that.

yum install system-config-network* -y
yum install system-config-firewall* -y
yum install system-config-securitylevel-tui -y
yum install system-config-keyboard -y
yum install ntsysv -y

setup command not found

That’s it. Do you want our team to answer your questions? Please contact us at
