Performing Tasks for Configuring Siebel Gateway Name Server, Siebel Enterprise, and SWSE Logical Profile


This topic is part of Performing Configuration Tasks.

After you install Siebel Gateway Name Server, you run the Siebel Configuration Wizard (Siebel Enterprise Configuration). This wizard includes the tasks listed below. Perform the tasks under Create New Configuration in the order shown.

NOTE:  If you have uninstalled all instances of Siebel Server and SWSE, you can perform applicable Remove tasks, where appropriate or required.

  • Create New Configuration
    • Configure a New Gateway Name Server. Configures the Siebel Gateway Name Server you have installed.
    • Configure a New Enterprise in a Gateway Name Server. Creates a new Siebel Enterprise configuration on the Gateway Name Server.

      Before you perform this task in live mode, the Siebel Gateway Name Server must have already been installed and configured, and must be running.

    • Configure a New Siebel Web Server Extension Logical Profile. Creates and saves an SWSE logical profile in a location you designate. The logical profile stores settings that typically would apply to multiple SWSE installations. The logical profile also includes editable files that will automatically create the Siebel application virtual directories on the Web server when you apply the SWSE logical profile.

      When you configure an installed instance of SWSE, you apply an SWSE logical profile. This task updates the eapps.cfg file on the SWSE with settings from the SWSE logical profile and other settings specific to this SWSE instance. It also creates the virtual directories. See also Performing Tasks for Configuring the SWSE.

      For details on creating and applying the SWSE logical profile, see Configuring the SWSE.

  • Modify Existing Configuration
    • Modify an Existing Enterprise. Modifies configuration settings for a Siebel Enterprise you previously configured.

      Alternatively, you can modify the Siebel Enterprise configuration using Siebel Server Manager, as described in Siebel System Administration Guide.

  • Remove Existing Configuration
    • Remove a Physical Gateway Name Server. Removes the Siebel Gateway Name Server service, for a Siebel Gateway Name Server you have installed and configured.

      NOTE:  Do not remove the physical Gateway Name Server unless you have uninstalled all installed instances of SWSE and Siebel Server. When you uninstall the Gateway Name Server, the Configuration Wizard launches automatically. You must perform the task Remove a Physical Gateway Name Server. For more information, see Uninstalling Siebel Business Applications.

    • Remove an Enterprise from the Gateway Name Server. Removes a Siebel Enterprise you have configured on the Siebel Gateway Name Server.

      NOTE:  Do not remove the Siebel Enterprise unless you have uninstalled all installed instances of SWSE and Siebel Server. For more information, see Uninstalling Siebel Business Applications.

    • Remove a Siebel Web Server Extension Profile Directory. Removes an SWSE logical profile you previously created.

      NOTE:  Configuration data saved in an SWSE logical profile is used only when the profile is applied to an installed SWSE instance. However, even if you have configured all installed SWSE instances, it is strongly suggested to retain any SWSE logical profile you have created and applied.

      Removing an SWSE logical profile deletes all files in the directory created with the logical profile, including files that are used in creating Siebel application virtual directories on any SWSE instance to which you apply the logical profile. The load balancing configuration file lbconfig.txt is also placed in this location before you apply the logical profile. Back up the files in this directory before you remove it, in case you may need any of the files later.

  • Exit Configuration. Exits the Configuration Wizard.
