2 Installing and Uninstalling the Connector

This chapter provides the following information for installing or uninstalling the Siebel Connector, as well as switching from one console to the other:

Prerequisites

Before using the Siebel Connector, ensure that you meet the following prerequisites:

Installing the Connector

Perform the following steps to install the Siebel Connector:

  1. Copy the file EMHelpdesk.jar to the Oracle Management Service (OMS). In case of multiple OMSs, you have to copy the jar file for all OMSs.

  2. Run the following command on all OMSes:

    emctl extract_jar connector EMHelpdesk.jar Siebel_Connector $ORACLE_HOME
    

    Files are extracted from the jar file to the following directory:

    $ORACLE_HOME/sysman/connector/Siebel_Connector
    
  3. Ensure that the following files are extracted:

    • SiebelDeploy.xml — Connector Descriptor

    • SiebelHelpdeskTemplate.xsl — Ticket Template

    • CreateResponse.xsl — Ticket Response Template

    • EMModel.xml — Alert Schema

After you install Enterprise Manager, when you access the Enterprise Manager console as a Super Administrator, you can see the Siebel Connector in the Management Connectors. See Chapter 3, "Configuring the Connector" for instructions.

Uninstalling the Connector

To uninstall the Siebel Connector, select it in the Management Connectors page, then click Delete.

Registering the Connector Descriptor
