Great Document, for the dfm db acces it would be great to have a description to create the user instead of using the script. Had problems to run it:

Verifying archive integrity... All good.

Uncompressing WFA OnCommand-5 Setup...

./ line 4: /java/bin/java: No such file or directory

My customer wants to document what users have access and which capability is needed.

e.d. the commands dfm database user create ... role definition etc.
