Each Siebel Business Applications software release from Siebel Systems has a specific version or release level. Full installations can be performed from any three-digit release, such as 7.8.2. A full installation is your base product installation. The procedures in this book are for performing full installations of the base products. Server products are configured after a full installation, using the Siebel Software Configuration Wizard.
If you already have a base product installation, a subsequent three-digit release can be installed as a maintenance release. For example, 7.8.3, if available, could be installed on top of an existing 7.8.2 installation.
Typically, no configuration tasks are associated with installing a maintenance release. You generally do not need to run the Siebel Software Configuration Wizard. However, requirements for a given maintenance release, or for using particular supported languages or features, may vary. For details, refer to the applicable Maintenance Release Guide on Siebel SupportWeb.
You can set up your installations so that a Fix Pack or Quick Fix release will be automatically installed immediately following a full installation of the base products, in a chained fashion. This type of installation is sometimes referred to as slipstream installation. Before you install the base products, you should note whether maintenance releases are available and consider whether to install them together in this manner. For example, if the current base release level is 7.8.2 and Fix Pack release 188.8.131.52 is available, you can install these releases together, in sequence.
NOTE: For detailed information about installing maintenance releases (including slipstream installation) and about the features or other changes provided in the release, refer to the applicable Maintenance Release Guide on Siebel SupportWeb, where it is available.
