Preparing the Database Layout
When you select the standard installation method, the DB Server Configuration wizard creates a storage control file (called storage.ctl) based on the information that you provide in response to prompts.
When you select the custom installation method, you must create a storage control file before you perform Schema installation. There are several methods you can use to create a storage control file:
- Use an existing storage control file. You can specify the name of an existing storage control file in a custom installation.
- Modify one of the Siebel-provided storage control file templates. To modify a template, you can edit the file directly, or you can use a Siebel tool called the Database Storage Configurator (dbconf.xls). For more information, see About Creating or Modifying the Database Layout.
- Extract a new storage control file for custom installation. To create a storage control file based on the layout of the existing Siebel Schema, use the DB Server Configuration wizard - Extract Utility. This utility allows you to create the storage control file by "reverse-engineering" the DB2 catalog. For more information, see Extracting a Storage Control File from the DB2 Catalog.
