To apply a server profile to a fresh, unconfigured server, use the setup subcommand, which replaces the normal setup tool when using a server profile. Run manage-profile setup to complete the following tasks:

  • Copies the pre-setup files to the server root
  • Runs the setup tool
  • Copies the post-setup files to the server root
  • Installs any server SDK extensions
  • Runs any dsconfig batch files
  • Imports any LDIF files
  • Starts the server

While manage-profile setup is running, a copy of the profile is created in a temporary directory that can be specified by using the --tempProfileDirectory argument. The command leaves the server in a complete and running state when finished, unless the --doNotStart argument is specified.
