Foundation DBUtils is run automatically as part of the test system creation process. You may run Foundation DBUtils manually prior to test system creation if you want to customize the settings. For more information about customizing Foundation DBUtils, see the Database Reference Guide documentation.

To create a test system:

  1. In the Configuration module, select Utils | Change Control | Test System Creation. The Test System Creation dialog box is displayed.
  2. In the Profiles pane, select an existing profile or create a new profile. To create a new profile, see Creating a Profile.
  3. From the profile configuration settings section, click Execute. The Password Verification dialog box is displayed.
  4. Enter the password for the destination database in the Password field.
  5. Select Show detailed logs to display verbose output, such as table copy progress and error and warning messages.
  6. Click Run. The Test System Creation progress dialog box is displayed and the creation process begins.

    As the test system creation process is running, progress information is displayed. Test system creation reports are archived in the source database and the test database using the SYS Verification Reports Document Type, and their Document Handles are displayed in the progress dialog box.

    When the process is complete, Finished creation of test system is displayed. Environment-specific values copied to the test system are displayed.

    If the process fails and errors are displayed, click Back to return to profile configuration and correct the errors.

  7. Click Close.
  8. Log into the test environment using the Configuration module.
    The System Activation Callback dialog box is displayed.

    Do not close the System Activation Callback dialog box or click Cancel before entering the response code. A new update code is generated every time the System Activation Callback dialog box is displayed. The response code generated for one update code cannot be used for any other update code. Clicking Cancel or closing the dialog box will require you to re-launch the Configuration module to generate a new update code and re-engage your first line of support for a new response code.

  9. Since the System Activation update/response codes are lengthy it is a best practice to relay them via e-mail to ensure that they are communicated accurately. Contact your first line of support to determine which e-mail address the update code should be sent to.
  10. Click Copy to Clipboard to copy the update code to the Windows clipboard.
  11. Paste the value from the clipboard into an e-mail message (e.g., press Ctrl-V in the body of the e-mail message), then send the e-mail to the address provided by your first line of support.
  12. When the response code is returned via e-mail from your first line of support, copy the entire response code and paste it into the Response Code field.

    The response code should not contain any line breaks. Ensure that any line breaks introduced by your e-mail program have been removed.

  13. Click OK.
    If the system is activated successfully the The system has been successfully activated prompt is displayed.
  14. Click OK.
  15. Log into the test environment using the OnBase Client and review the test system creation report. Environment values that were cleared are displayed.
  16. In the Configuration module, configure the cleared environment values in the test environment.
