    eclipse -nosplash -application org.eclipse.osee.framework.application.server.DbInit -console -vmargs -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xmx512m -Dosgi.compatibility.bootdelegation=true -Dequinox.ds.debug=true -Dorg.osgi.service.http.port=8089 -Dosee.local.application.server=true
  3. When prompted select "Y"
  4. Select 'ATS Configuration'
  5. Wait for initialization to complete
