Installing the Siebel Gateway

Be sure that all machines on which the Siebel Server will be installed meet the hardware and software requirements detailed in System Requirements and Supported Platforms for this release.

The SES Installer verifies not only that you have the required software for installation of Siebel 7.5, but that the software is the version level necessary.

CAUTION:  To install Siebel eBusiness Applications, you must have 50-100 MB of disk space on your system drive (usually your C: drive) even if you intend to install Siebel eBusiness Applications onto another drive.

Follow the instructions below to install the Siebel Gateway.

NOTE:  The following procedure is for installing the base product. For patch installation instructions, refer to Maintenance Release Guide provided with the patch.

To install the Siebel Gateway

  1. Insert the Windows Server Programs Enterprise Server Base CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive of the chosen server (assumed here to be D:).
  2. In Windows Explorer, double-click seawinsesbase or siawinsesbase, as appropriate to the Siebel applications that you are installing.
  3. NOTE:  If you are installing Siebel Industry Applications, you will install siawinsesbase.

  4. Navigate to:
  5. D:\windows_server_ses_base\ses\base and double-click setup.exe

    The Welcome to InstallShield Wizard for Siebel Enterprise Server screen appears.

  6. Click Next.
  7. If you have installed other Siebel components on the same machine, the installer displays the message that an existing installation has been found.

  8. Depending on whether you are installing your Siebel Gateway files for the first time or adding a new language to an existing instance, take the appropriate action, then click Next.
  9. Select the directory in which you want to install Siebel Enterprise Server.
  10. By default, setup installs in the C:\sea7xx directory. If desired, you may choose a different drive for installation by either clicking Browse or typing the drive and directory location that you recorded in Deployment Planning Worksheets.

    NOTE:  This directory name must not contain spaces, although underscores are allowed.

  11. Click Next.
  12. The installer prompts you to select the server that you want to install.

  13. Choose from the following options and then click Next:
  14. Choose the type of installation to execute from the following options; then click Next to continue:
  15. NOTE:  For the Siebel Gateway, all three options install the same Siebel Gateway components.

  16. Confirm the language packs you are installing for the Siebel Gateway and click Next.
  17. Servers are installed, at a minimum, with the primary language in which the server will be run. This is the primary (base) language for your Enterprise. Optionally, you can install one or more additional languages.

    NOTE:  In a Unicode-enabled database environment, you can install any of the available Siebel language packs. In a non-Unicode database environment, you must consider the correlation of the language packs you want to install and the characters supported by your database code page. For example, in a Western European code page database, you can only install Western European language packs such as English, French, Spanish, or German language packs. And in a Japanese code page database, you can only install Japanese or English language packs.

    For a list of supported code pages and encoding strategies, see System Requirements and Supported Platforms.

    The installer program performs a validation check to make sure that installation prerequisites were met.

    If they were not, a prompt appears stating which installation requirement was not met, such as, installation of Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC), for example.

    The installer prompts you that the setup program will install program shortcuts to your Program Folder with the name Siebel Enterprise Server 7.x. You can override this by entering a different name.

    The installer displays the location into which it will install the Siebel Gateway and any other servers you have elected to install. It also displays the file size.

  18. If this is acceptable, click Next. Otherwise, click Back to adjust your installation parameters or location.
  19. The installer proceeds to install the specified files.

    After all Siebel Gateway files have been installed, a warning screen appears, stating:

    Setup did not find the Siebel Language Code language pack on the current media. Please insert the Siebel Language Code language pack CD and select setup.exe.

  20. Click OK.
  21. A dialog box titled Insert CD for language Language Pack appears (where language stands for the language pack you are installing), and displays a file called siebel.ini. However, you do not need to do anything with this file.

  22. Remove the current CD from the drive and insert the appropriate Language Pack CD.
  23. Locate seawinseslanguage, where language stands for the language pack you are installing and double-click on it.
  24. NOTE:  If you are installing Siebel Industry Solutions, you will install siawinseslanguage.

  25. Run setup.exe.
  26. A message appears stating that language files are being installed.

    When all language files have been installed, a new message box appears, stating:

    Please reinsert the base CD and browse to the setup.exe to enable setup to continue.

  27. Click OK.
  28. Remove the current CD from the drive and insert the Windows Server Programs Siebel Enterprise Server Base CD into the CD-ROM drive again.
