Well it all depends on what are your objectives with Grouper ;-)

I would suggest configuring a Subject Source (LDAP or SQL) and installing the
Web UI. With these you'll be able to explore Grouper's functionalities by
creating groups with members.

After that there would be provisioning Grouper Groups to other resources like
LDAP (if required) or a Loader-Type job to add an external directory's groups
to Grouper. But this all depends on how you want to integrate Grouper with
your org

By the way, gsh has options for registry initialisation, for instance, we use
the following command when the database is new, it will create the tables and
all :
$GROUPER_HOME/bin/ -registry -runscript -check

After adding the initial schema, it looks like things are OK:

Nothing is running at this stage...
What needs to be done now?
