# Consul SUSE package
The Consul SUSE Package does not create any special configuration for your
agent. Instead, it's up to you to provide the config if you want to run Consul
in agent mode. The systemd service file provided by the SUSE package expects
the configuration to be placed in the `/etc/consul` directory. Moreover, the
package has also created the `/var/lib/consul` directory, which is the

We have written down an example config for a client and a server:

- server: `/usr/share/doc/packages/consul/server.json`.
