Installing Siebel 8.2.2 on Linux x86-64 Part-2

3.Installing and Configuring a Siebel Enterprise Server
In this Part we will :-
a. Install Siebel Enterprise Server
b. Configure a Siebel Gateway Name Server
c. Configure a Siebel Enterprise within a Gateway Name Server.
d. Create a Siebel Web Server Extension Logical Profile.

3.1.1 Installing Servers:-
Install the servers in the following sequence:-
Siebel Gateway Name Server
Siebel Server
Database Configuration Utilities (with the first Siebel Server)}

  • Create a destination Directory for Siebel Installation and provide permissons accordingly.
    #mkdir /u01/siebel
    #chown oracle:oinstall /siebel
  • Run “runInstaller” with oneClick option.
    # ./runInstaller -oneclick
  • Specify Oracle Home and Oracle Location
  • Select the product and Language to be installed .
  • We can Skip Security Update .
  • As the installer is checking the system for a 32 bit installation , and we are on a 64 bit platform Installer will through errors while performing System Check. Ignore System Check messages.
    Ref:- OUI-11104 Warning While Installing Siebel Enterprise Server 8.2.2 on OEL 5.5 (Oracle Enterprise Linux) [ID 1476556.1]
  • Click Install on the Summary Screen to proceed with the Installation.
  • We can monitor the Installation Procedure from Installation Screen.
  • And if everything goes alright a success message will appear as :-
  • Press Exit to End Installation.

3.2.2 Configure the Siebel Enterprise :-

  • Now that Siebel Installation is complete , next step will be to configure Siebel Enterprise.
  • We need to configure :–
    a. Siebel Gateway name Server
    b. Siebel Enterprise on/within Siebel Gateway Name Server     computer.
    c. {To Configure the Siebel Web Server Extension}. Create a Siebel Web Server Extension Logical Profile.

1.We will use configuration tool located in Gateway Server’s bin directory.

  •  Change to installation directory
    # cd /u01/siebel/
  • source the environment file , as
    [dbuser@vm50 gtwysrvr]$ source
  • Navigate to the config subdirectory
    Invoke to configure Siebel Server and so on
    #./config -mode mode_name
    Here mode_name specify the Configuration Wizard to run.
    Here in our case it’s “enterprise” as we are configuring Siebel Enterprise.
    [dbuser@vm50 config]$ ./ -mode enterprise
  • Click on Create New Configuration.
  • First we will be configuring Gateway Name Server.
  • Choose a network TCP/IP port to use with the Gateway Name Server.
    Default Port is 2320
  • If you want to save a response file later usev(Like Silent/Console Install ) you can save it on this screen , otherwise leave it blank.
  • Click next to continue.
  • It should return a success message.
  • Click exit to End Configuration Wizard.

2. Rerun to the configuration Wizard to Configure Siebel Enterprise     within Gateway   Name Server .

  • Enter Gateway Name Server User Name and password.
  • Enter machine name when asked for Gateway Name Server Host Name.
  • Enter the network TCP/IP port that we are using with Gateway Name Server. {Remember we assigned 2320 when we were configuring Name Server}
  • Note:-If our Gateway name server is running then after clicking next everything will be fine , thus we are also testing if our gateway name server is running or not{which we didn’t perform earlier;-) }
  • Enter Siebel Enterprise Name and description.
  • Next step is to provide primary Siebel File System. Installer will not create this automatically SO ?
    Note: – “ We need Create Siebel File System Manually as it will not do so by itself.”
    # [dbuser@vm50 ~]$ cd /u01/siebel/
    # mkdir fs {File System Should be accessed to every Siebel Server}
  • Select Oracle as RDBMS Owner and Database Table owner
  • Enter the Oracle SQLNet Connect String:
  • Enter Database Username Password for Siebel Database User account{We will be creating this in next Part}.
  • In the Authentication profile we will be using database authentication .
  • As we are configuring Enterprise for first time we must select propagate Authentication Setting to Gateway Name Server.
  • Click next on summary to deploy our Enterprise .
  • Click exit after success message.

3. Rerun for third Time to configure Web Server extension logical    Profile.

  • Enter Siebel Enterprise Name , Entered Earlier
  • Enter location for Profile .Configuration tool will create this directory automatically.
  • To enable application specific statistics reporting. When disabled, only basic statistics will be collected on the statistics Web page for a Siebel Web Server Extension with the assigned profile.
  • Select the compression type to be used for messages exchanged between Siebel Web Server Extension and Siebel Server.
  • Enter Login Session and Active Session Time Out values(In seconds)
  • Note:-HTTP PORT 80 is reserved in Linux only Root can Access it so we need to change it.
  • We will use default employee login and Customer Login.
  • Employee is :- GUESTERM
    Also Enter Employee Password
  • Similarly enter Default Customer Name and Password.
  • Enter the Security Token and Default statistic page.
  • Select TCPIP as connection Protocol
  • Click next on summary screen to complete configuration
  • You should get a success message .Click exit after Success message.
  • Run Post Installation Tests.
    Source newly created in gtwysrvr directory.
    Note :- “As we have not configured database till now we will not be able to use gateway Name server”.
    So test for now we can check if any process is listening on 2320
  • also we can check if any sieb process is running or not ?
  • So above two test’s are positive.
    There is also a useful tool in the bin directory (in gateway name server directory)
    list_ns allow us to track currently running gateway servers
    For Example :-
