Reviewing the Log Files for Siebel Database Installation
Installing Siebel Database components on the RDBMS creates several log files within the $SIEBEL_ROOT/log subdirectory. You must review the files in this subdirectory for any errors.
For example, log files created may be named srvrupgwiz1.log (the most recently created), srvrupgwiz1_01.log, srvrupgwiz1_02.log, and so.
NOTE: For information about reviewing log files using the
logparse utility, see the Upgrade Guide.
Some other files generated for selected supported RDBMS are listed below.
DB2 UDB. For DB2 UDB, the following log files are also generated when you create tables, indexes, and seed data:
ddlview_sia.log (for SIA)
Oracle. For Oracle, the following log files are also generated when you create tables, indexes, and seed data:
ddlview_sia.log (for SIA)
Acceptable Errors for Siebel Database Installation
The log files may include errors that are expected and benign. Compare any error messages found in the log files to the sample error messages in the errors.txt file, which is located in the installation subdirectory for your database platform, for example, oracle. If a log file is not listed in the errors.txt file, then there are no acceptable error messages for that log file. No further action is required if the log files contain errors listed in the errors.txt file.
NOTE: Only one of each type of error occurring in a particular log file appears in the errors.txt file.
If you find errors not listed in the errors.txt file, correct the condition that caused the errors, and rerun the Upgrade Wizard.The wizard will restart from the point where it left off.
Do not review only the error numbers, because these may have changed following installation of a new driver version. Instead, compare the actual error descriptions to find out which are acceptable errors for this platform.
CAUTION: Although other errors are rarely encountered, this review is critical. Certain errors, such as a failure to create indexes, may result in performance problems or anomalous behavior in Siebel Business Applications.
You can view a log summary generated using the logparse utility. For more information, see the Upgrade Guide.
Troubleshooting Siebel Database Installation
Typically, problems during database installation result from insufficient storage space having been allocated, or from the installer having improper user privileges.
Providing a Rollback Segment on Oracle
To avoid certain types of errors after importing the repository, make sure that your database administrator provides only one large rollback segment online in your Oracle database.
