This section describes the parameters that need to be set in order to launch Eucalyptus
for the first time. The first launch of Eucalyptus is different than a restart of
a previously running Eucalyptus deployment in that it sets up the security mechanisms
that will be used by the installation to ensure system integrity.
Eucalyptus configuration is stored in a text file, /etc/eucalyptus/eucalyptus.conf, that contains key-value pairs specifying various configuration parameters. Eucalyptus
reads this file when it launches and when various forms of reset commands are sent
it the Eucalyptus components.
Perform the following tasks after you install Eucalyptus software, but before you
start the Eucalyptus services.
