Installing relocated must be done using the RPM tool directly, as the normal
yum does not support it.
A script for doing semi-automatic modifications of changed paths in installed scripts/config files is added. Run this as described after the package installation is done.
yum install yum-utils yum downloader varnish-plus varnish-plus-libs varnish-plus-libs-devel
Install packages that Varnish Enterprise depends on:
$ rpm -Uvh --relocate /=/opt/varnish varnish-plus*.rpm $ /usr/share/doc/varnish-plus-*/relocate /opt/varnish

require some additional manual steps on installation.
Availability of other Varnish Enterprise components is limited when running on a relocated installation.
