First you probably want to configure the sources.xml file to point to your
database and confirm that it works with grouper (e.g. gsh) if you haven't
done that already. It's probably best to look at the examples in the file
and modify them to work for your database. Here's some documentation

while. Here's a high level description/diagrams/videos - . Again, I would just go by the
examples and ask questions here.
