About Siebel Management Agent and Siebel Management Server
This topic is part of Installing Siebel Management Agent and Siebel Management Server.
Siebel Management Agent and Siebel Management Server are infrastructure components that support the Siebel Application Deployment Manager (ADM) and Siebel Diagnostic Tool features. These components collectively are also referred to as the Siebel Management Framework.
The Siebel Management Server installation includes Siebel Diagnostic Tool, which makes use of Management Server. Management Server needs to be installed only once, usually on a dedicated management station. You can use the same Management Server with one or more Siebel Enterprises.
Siebel Management Agent must be installed on all servers that are to be used with Siebel ADM or Siebel Diagnostic Tool. Management Agent is installed with Siebel Server by default.
For all deployments of Siebel Management Server and Management Agent, Management Server communicates with installed instances of Management Agent.
