7.4.4. Creating the TPS Instance

The first step is to create the instance. This example uses the minimal normal configuration options (port assignments and the instance definition). Other options could be specified to set user-defined log and configuration directories and a user-defined operating system user and group. For other pkicreate options, see Table 7.1, “pkicreate Parameters”.
The command options here are on separate lines to make it clear what options are used; in practice, all options should be on a single line.
pkicreate -pki_instance_root=/var/lib
          -redirect logs=/var/log
When the pkicreate command completes, it returns a URL to use to access the web-based configuration wizard and a PIN to use to authenticate. This PIN is also contained in the install logs (/var/lib/instance_name/logs-install.log) and in the CS.cfg file for the instance.
