Component Definition Commands
Use the component definition commands to create, activate, or delete defined components. Component definitions are contained in component groups, both of which are defined at the Siebel Enterprise Server level. To use the new component, make sure the component definition is activated and the component group containing the new component is assigned to the appropriate server. See Component Group Definition Commands for component group commands.
NOTE: When working with component definition commands, launch and run the srvrmgr program for the enterprise; that is, do not start srvrmgr with the /s (or -s for UNIX) flag and do not run the command
To create a new component
create component definition
component_alias_namefor component type
The run mode options are:
The component alias must:
- Be unique across the enterprise
- Contain no more than 30 characters
Be careful not to use keywords in the component description, such as
component,unless they are enclosed in quotes. Also note that the alias or short name of the component group is required for the component group parameter. See Table 28 for a list of component groups and their corresponding aliases.
For background information on component types, see About Server Component Types.
After running the
create command, use the following command to enable the component definition at the enterprise, component definition level, and to enable and assign the component to the component group defined in the
create command. This action only occurs if the component definition is in the creating state. If the component definition is not in a creating state, the
enable command only enables the component definition at the enterprise level.
To activate a component definition
- After defining the component, activate the defined component by entering:
activate component definition
NOTE: If you receive an error when attempting to activate a new component definition, make sure you did not start the srvrmgr command-line interface program using the /s flag, which targets only a specific server.
To deactivate a component definition
To delete a component definition
