      Thanks a lot, it is the lacking part in OpenText installation guide. Just a small question:

      1. How long does this installation process take? In my case it endures more than 8 hours but it is still in state Main Import. I have checked logs it all showed that finished with warning (State 4).

      Thanks for any suggestion.
