Preparing the Installation System repository
The Installation System repository stores information about:
- Installation projects
- Site-wide default values
The Runtime Component System ( RTCS ) hosts the Installation System repository. RTCS must be active (that is, the RTCS started task is running) on the system on which you run the Installation System. All systems configured to use this RTCS share an Installation System repository.
For more information, view the Quick Course Installation System - Installation System Repository.
For a list of Quick Courses about the Installation System, see PDFs and videos.
When you start the Installation System, if RTCS :
- Is active on your system, it will be used for the Installation System repository and no additional actions are required to prepare the repository.
- Is not installed or active on your systems, the Runtime Component System Not Active panel is displayed:
