This topic is part of About Unattended or Console Mode Installation and Configuration.
Installers for Siebel Business Applications products read data from a siebel.ini file to control and provide input to the installation. Default files are provided, which are suitable for GUI installation.
Alternatively, you can generate response files for installation, which are siebel.ini files that are automatically set up for use in unattended installations. You generate an installation response file by running the installer in record mode and specifying an output file. Generating the installation response file disables launching the Configuration Wizard in GUI mode for applicable products. When you run an installer in record mode, no actual installation is performed.
Generally, after you run an installer in record mode to generate an updated siebel.ini file, you can use this file to perform unattended installation without making manual edits to the siebel.ini file. However, if you want to launch unattended configuration automatically, you must edit the siebel.ini file to launch the Configuration Wizard in execute mode and to specify the configuration response file to use.
For more information about running the installer in record mode, see Command-Line Options for Siebel Installers and Wizards.
You can also edit the default siebel.ini file used for GUI or console installation. For example, you can edit the file to launch unattended configuration. For console installation, you must edit the default siebel.ini file to disable launching GUI configuration.
For more information about manually editing siebel.ini files, see Editing siebel.ini Files for Unattended Installation and Configuration.
For each product, the siebel.ini file reflects the type of Siebel network image you created, as noted in Obtaining Siebel Installation Media Files. The image type is either Siebel Business Applications (horizontal applications) or Siebel Industry Applications (vertical applications).
if you manually modify a siebel.ini file, do not modify values containing variables. For example, the value
NOTE: Make a copy of each siebel.ini file you plan to modify, and save it in a unique location that identifies the module it pertains to. Preserve each copy in case you may need it for later reference. This recommendation applies both to generating siebel.ini files using the installer record mode and to manually editing siebel.ini files.
You can optionally perform unattended configuration (running the Configuration Wizard in execute mode) for applicable products such as Siebel Enterprise Server or Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE). For example, unattended installation may often be accompanied by unattended configuration.
For more information about running the Configuration Wizards, including using offline mode and execute mode, see About Configuring Siebel Enterprise Server and Related Components and related topics.
