About the ADM Framework Installation
The Application Deployment Manager (ADM) framework requires the installation of, and ADM-specific configurations for, the Siebel Management Agents and Siebel Management Server.
At installation, you must meet the following requirements:
- The correct versions of Java and Perl is installed on machines that host Siebel Management Agent or Management Server. For required versions of Java and Perl for ADM, see Siebel System Requirements and Supported Platforms on Siebel SupportWeb. You can check the version of Java by typing
java -version at the DOS prompt. You can check the version of Perl by typing
perl -v at a DOS prompt.
- The PATH environment variable is set to the path for the srvrmgr executable. For information on configuring the PATH environment variable, see Configuring the PATH Environment Variable.
You must install and configure at least one instance of Management Agent before you install and configure the Management Server. However, installing all the Siebel Servers and Management Agents before installing the Management Server is recommended.
By default, the Management Agent is automatically installed during a typical Siebel Server installation. In a custom Siebel Server installation, you can either include Management Agent in the installation or exclude it from being installed with the Siebel Server. If you exclude Management Agent from the Siebel Server installation, you must install it separately. Installing Management Agent separately is recommended for the following benefits:
- You can uninstall and reinstall the Management Agent separately, without having to also reinstall the Siebel Server.
- You can uninstall the Siebel Server without uninstalling the Management Agent.
For information on installing the Siebel Management Agents and Siebel Management Server, see Siebel Installation Guide for the operating system you are using.
The ADM framework must be configured after the installation. For information on these tasks, see Process of Configuring the ADM Framework after Installing Siebel Management Server and Siebel Management Agent. To verify a functioning ADM framework after installation, deploy the sample package, which is a task in Process of Configuring the ADM Framework after Installing Siebel Management Server and Siebel Management Agent.
