Create a copy of a multisite environment in Infor Syteline

Below I’ll describe how to create a copy of a multisite environment in Infor Syteline 8.03.XX. You can use this procedure to duplicate an existing environment that you are using or to create a new environment out of your “seed” environment. Seed environment would be your fully configured environment that does not contain any transactional data. You can create copies of  this “template” (clean environment) with different names to create test and/or production environments.
