Deploying ADM Sessions Using the Application Deployment Manager GUI
Deploying sessions by using the ADM GUI is one of the alternate means of migrating ADM database data types from one Siebel application environment to another. For other alternative deployment options, see Other ADM Deployment Options.
Before using this deployment option, make sure an ADM session exists in the source environment. To create an ADM session, follow tasks 1 through 5 as outlined in Process of Creating ADM Deployment Units from Database Types.
NOTE: Make sure the parameters Target System and Target User Name are provided when creating the ADM Project.
TIP: A best practice when using this deployment method is to use a project filter for each database item being deployed.
To migrate a deployment session
- Navigate to the Application Deployment Manager screen > Deployment Sessions view.
- Select the deployment session of interest. Make sure the Deployment Lock field is checked.
- Click the Deploy button.
- Enter the password for the target system user, and then click the Deploy button.
The Status field of the deployment session record changes to Submitted. Click the Refresh button to further update the status of the deployment.
NOTE: The volume of data and the number of items within a session contribute to the processing time.
- Check the details of the deployment by reviewing the ADM log files and the EAI queue.
For more information about ADM log files, see ADM Logging Capabilities and Troubleshooting.
