Tech Tip – Configuring the RDK Installation Processes


Did you know…That you can configure RDK installation processes.

One of the records in the SYSUPGRADE table, %PROCESS%, contains the instructions to be used during the installation process.  Instructions are placed into this record in blocks, with a header at the top of the block indicating the process to perform.  Below is a list of the installation processes:

[CREATE TABLES] * To create tables
VOLUME/TABLE/ACCOUNT
