About the ADM Package Utility
The Application Deployment Manager (ADM) Package Utility creates and validates the ADM deployment package, which can then be used by the ADM framework to deploy Siebel application customizations to a target environment. It also creates the ADM package descriptor file that is used during the deployment process.
The ADM Package Utility is a stand-alone, Java-based program that is invoked through a batch file (admpkgr.bat) to execute various package commands at the command-line. By default, it is installed with the Siebel Management Server and Siebel Tools, and you can copy it to other Windows or UNIX machines. For more information on copying this utility to a UNIX environment, see Copying the ADM Package Utility to a UNIX Environment. For more information on the ADM Package Utility modes and a list of available switches, see About the ADM Package Utility Modes and Switches.
