Installing the Siebel Analytics Disconnected Client

Siebel Disconnected Analytics Client allows mobile users to access data and reports when not connected to the network-based Siebel Analytics Server. You install the Siebel Disconnected Analytics Client on laptop computers.

NOTE:  Siebel Disconnected Analytics Client is not to be confused with the enterprise (Siebel Analytics Server) installation. See also the information on setting up Disconnected Analytics in Siebel Analytics Server Administration Guide. For information about how mobile users typically use the Disconnected Analytics Client, see Disconnected Analytics Online Help.

When you run the Siebel Analytics installer wizard you are prompted to select the setup type. If you purchased Siebel Disconnected Analytics, the installer detects this from the license key information you select during installation and displays the Disconnected Client option.

CAUTION:  You cannot install the Disconnected Analytics Client at the same time as the rest of the Siebel Analytics components.
Also, you cannot install the Disconnected Client on the same machine with Siebel Analytics. You must install them on two separate machines.
