Before initializing a domain, familiarize yourself with the following prerequisites:
General Prerequisites for Initializing a Domain Using Another Domain as a Source
When initializing a domain using another domain as a source, run the DB Checker Utility for the source domain.
Make sure the database type and version of the source domain is the same as the database type and version where you want to initialize a new domain. If not, you must upgrade the source domain, or the target Admin schema to the same version of your Smart Instrumentation® software.
When initializing a domain using another domain as a source, in the source domain, make a list of all user-defined database views that are used in the source domain. You need to log on as Domain Administrator to add user-defined database views in the list. When initializing a domain, the software only creates those user-defined views that the Domain Administrator added in the list.
When initializing a domain in Windows Vista and Windows 7, you might need to temporarily turn off the User Account Control in Windows 7 64-bit and Windows 10. For details, see Workaround for an Initialization Problem in Windows 7 and 10.
Domain Initialization in Oracle

For details, see Numeric Character Settings for Oracle.
Domain Initialization in SQL Server
