Database Support in Analytics Scheduler
Siebel Analytics Scheduler uses a single commercial back-end database to store pertinent information about a job, its instances, and its parameters. The Scheduler works with all the supported databases for Siebel Analytics. For the complete list of supported databases, see System Requirements and Supported Platforms, available on Siebel SupportWeb.
TIP: To access Siebel System Requirements and Supported Platforms, go to SupportWeb and, on the Product Documentation page, click the System Requirements and Supported Platforms & Miscellaneous Documentation link. In the Siebel Business Analytics area, click the version of the document you want.
The Scheduler service starts only if the back-end database satisfies the following conditions:
- The database is configured.
NOTE: There is a one-to-one relationship between the back-end database and Siebel Analytics Scheduler. Do not configure multiple Siebel Analytics Scheduler applications to use a single back-end database.
- The database is operational.
NOTE: For information about the specific back-end databases supported by Siebel Analytics Scheduler, see System Requirements and Supported Platforms, available on Siebel SupportWeb on Siebel SupportWeb.
- For some databases, the database authentication mode must be mixed.
For example, if the database is SQL Server, then the security mode should be set to allow both SQL Server and Windows Authentication for logon.
NOTE: Do not use operating system authentication for the back-end database login. If you do, the Scheduler service may not start in some cases.
