About the ADM Data Type Summary Table
This topic describes the column headings in Table 12 that provide a summary definition of the content and functionality of individual Application Deployment Manager (ADM) data types. For information on how to use this information during the ADM packaging and deployment phases, see How to Use This Appendix. The following list explains the terms used in Table 12:
- Data Type. Name of the ADM data type, which represents the customized application data.
- Deployment Alias. Alternate name or alias of the ADM data type used during deployment.
- Category. High-level category of the ADM data types. There are three categories: database types, repository types, and file types.
- B (Backup). Indicates if the ADM data type is available for backup on the target environment.
- A (Activate). Indicates if the ADM data type is available for activation on the target environment. If it is not available, then the data type does not require activation to be deployed and will become active as soon as the copy process is complete.
- R (Restore). Indicates if the ADM data type can be restored on the target environment.
- S (System Impact). Indicates impact to the system, if any, when items of this type are deployed and activated. The ADM Package Utility aggregates the values for each data type in an ADM package and enters the greatest impact into the package descriptor file. There are six possible values:
- No impact. The data type can be deployed without any impact to the availability of the system.
- User reconnect. The user must log in again to access any newly deployed items for this data type.
- Manual activation. The data type does not support activation through the ADM framework; therefore, manual steps must be taken to complete the deployment.
- Web server restart. Restart Web servers to fully deploy and activate the items for this data type.
- Rolling server restart. Restart Siebel Servers to fully deploy and activate the items for this data type. However, it is possible to limit the impact on server availability by performing the deployment (and server restart) to a subset of the Siebel Servers at a time; that is, in a rolling fashion.
- Siebel Enterprise Server restart. Restart the entire target Siebel Enterprise Server to fully deploy and activate items for this data type.
