Test System Setup

Jonathan Semones -

After you have planned out your test system you can follow these instructions for setting it up.

Important! Setting up a Test system is a process that is not covered by Lucity Support.  We can provide information, and troubleshooting, but cannot do the process for you.  If you would like Lucity to do this for you then contact us and we will give you a quote.
