EP 6.0 using registry values for windows installation?

Just had some question about the locality of configuration properties of EP. Could you please confirm or rebuke my statements below.

1. The database (external, oracle or ms sqlserver) stores the iviews, pages and styles like in EP 5.0.

2. The LDAP stores users and their properties.

3. The PCD is implemented as an internal database under SAP J2EE and the database file is located somewhere under c:\usr\sap

4. Most other configuration options are on the file system (c:\usr\sap on a standard windows installation)

5. A fewu00A0u00A0elements are stored in windows registry (if so which values)

The reason why I am asking is that we've tried to reinstall the portal on a server with only removing the c:\usr\sap folder and dropping the oracle user (this was not even remotely possible in EP 5.0). This failed during the middle of the installation (don't know the status after the OS has been reinstalled but my guess is that it works).

    1. DB stores all configuration, iView definitions, pages, styles, etc.  Practically everything is stored in the DB now.

    2. LDAP can be used to store users, but the DB can also store users as well.

    3. PCD is now in the DB (either Oracle or MSSQL).  The DB file is on the DBMS server.

    4. Very little configuration info is on the filesystem.  Most reside in the DB (except for the first time startup where the files are copied into the DB)

    5. I am unaware of any important registry entries in EP6.  I doubt there are any (except perhaps something the installer might make)

      I recently checked the registry on an EP 6.0 SP2 installation on W2K and there are no entries in the registry.  This change would not be realized with Unification, of course, or Real Time Collaboration (RTC).
