The Siebel Database on the RDBMS stores the data used by Siebel Business Applications. Siebel Server components (particularly Application Object Managers supporting Siebel Web Clients), Siebel Tools clients, and Siebel Developer Web Clients connect directly to the Siebel Database and make changes in real time.
(Siebel Mobile Web Clients download a subset of the server data to use locally, and periodically synchronize with the Siebel Database through the Siebel Server (Siebel Remote components) to update both the local database and the Siebel Database.)
The Siebel Database Server refers to a set of files that you install on a Siebel Server machine. These files are accessed when you run the Database Server Configuration Wizard (which is part of the Siebel Software Configuration Wizard) and the Siebel Upgrade Wizard in order to configure the Siebel Database on the RDBMS. (The Siebel Database Server installed software has no run-time role in managing database operations for users running Siebel Business Applications.)
CAUTION: You must install the Siebel Database Server in the same directory in which you installed the Siebel Server (for example, /sea78). Otherwise, the installer assumes you are installing components for a different Siebel Enterprise Server. The Siebel Database Server files are installed in the directory /sea78/dbsrvr.
For information about tasks you must perform in the RDBMS before you install the Siebel Database Server, see Configuring the RDBMS.
NOTE: You can have only one Siebel Database per Siebel Enterprise Server. A Siebel Server must already be installed on the computer on which you will install the Siebel Database Server software, and the Siebel Database Server must be installed in the same directory as the Siebel Server, as noted in the procedure under Installing the Siebel Database Server on the Siebel Server.
