You must also have a separate testing environment. You can migrate your configuration to your testing environment for system testing before installing in a production environment. Like the development environment, your testing environment will include:

The development database stores the working copy of all repositories being configured by your developers. Configuration work should only take place on the development database. After you have finished configuring a repository, use the Siebel REPIMEXP utility (as part of the Database Server Configuration Utility) to transfer that repository to the test environment and production environment.
