About the Siebel Management Agents and ADM
Siebel Management Agents are installed on the target environment Siebel Servers and communicate with the Siebel Management Server and its ADM deployment engine to facilitate the deployment of application customizations to the target environment.
Siebel Management Agents are controlled through Java Management Extension (JMX) technology and are implemented as Managed Bean (MBean) servers, which have multiple MBeans running. Each MBean is responsible for the deployment of one or more data categories. The MBean data category (i.e. deployment category) mapping is defined in the ADM registry. For each deployment unit, the Siebel Management Server looks up the name of the MBean, based on the category to which the deployment unit belongs.
Part of the MBeans capability is to implement the following ADM deployment functionality:
- Environment validation
- Restore activation
