Starting the Siebel Server Services for Windows

If you did not select automatic Siebel Server startup, you must start the Siebel Server services manually after you finish installation of the Siebel Server.

NOTE:  If you will be clustering a particular server, you must start and stop it, using the Cluster Administrator, rather than with the following procedure.

This procedure is not necessary if you selected automatic startup during configuration.

To start the Siebel Server service

  1. From the Windows Start menu:
  2. Windows 2000. Choose Programs >Administrative Tools >Services.

    Windows NT. Choose Settings > Control Panel > Services.

  3. On the Services dialog box, scroll to the Siebel Server service. The name of the service has the following format:
  4. Siebel Server enterprise server_siebel server


    enterprise server = the name of your Siebel Enterprise Server.

    siebel server = the name of the Siebel Server you have just installed.

  5. To start the service:
  6. Windows 2000. Select Action >Start.

    Windows NT. Click Start.

    CAUTION:  If the Siebel Server service does not start, look in the installation logs for error messages. The installation log is called SVRsetup.log and is located in the Siebel Server root directory. You can also check \log\sw_cfg_util.log.

To administer the Siebel Enterprise Server and all its Siebel Servers, you must launch Server Manager.

To launch Server Manager

  1. After you have installed the Siebel Server, install the Siebel Web Server Extension onto a server you have designated as your Web server. For information on installing this plug-in, see Installing the Siebel Web Server Extension.
  2. Launch the Siebel Web Client.
  3. From the View menu, select Site Map.
  4. On the Site Map, select Server Administration, and refer to the operation instructions in Siebel Server Administration Guide.
