This databases/schemas are created during this step and you can follow different scenarios (deployment scenario) This step is executed from the CAST Administration workstation configured in Step 1 using CAST Server Manager.

You can optionally install your downloaded CAST AIP Extensions at the same time as you install the CAST schemas.
