7.1 What Is Provisioning?

After you have installed DSfW, you need to configure DSfW and the supporting services to make the DSfW server ready for use. Provisioning is the process of configuring the services on a DSfW server. It is made up of a series of logical steps that execute in a predetermined order to complete the DSfW installation.

The configuration details provided during DSfW installation serve as input for the Provisioning Wizard. The tasks to be executed for provisioning vary with the scenario in which DSfW has been installed.
