Requirements for Running Image Creator Utility
This topic is part of Preparing to Create a Siebel Installation Image.
Before you run Image Creator for your chosen platform, consider the following requirements:
- For products downloaded as ZIP files from the Oracle E-Delivery Web site, make sure you have extracted all JAR files from the ZIP files.
- Place the product JAR files and the Image Creator utility files in the same directory. This directory is the JAR files directory described in Determine Location for Siebel Media Files and Siebel Images.
You must place at least one JAR file representing a Siebel product in the directory where you run Image Creator, referred to here as the JAR files directory. Doing so enables the utility to determine the Siebel version of the image to be created.
It is strongly recommended that all the product JAR files for the same version be located in the same directory (the JAR files directory). Optionally, some JAR files may be located in one or more other directories you specify while running Image Creator.
- The Siebel Image Creator utility includes the following files, which must be present in the JAR files directory where you run the utility. Do not modify these files.
- The Image Creator executable program for the platform on which you run the utility
- Image Creator can run in either GUI mode or console mode.
- If you click Cancel while running Image Creator, you may need to rerun Image Creator. For more information, see Troubleshooting Siebel Image Creation.
- An Image Creator session may take a long time to complete. While files are being extracted or copied, you cannot click Cancel to cancel an Image Creator session. Be sure of your selections before you begin creating the Siebel image.
- If necessary, you can force overwriting existing image files during an Image Creator session, such as if you are recovering from a failed image creation. For more information, see Troubleshooting Siebel Image Creation.
