Checking Siebel Analytics Server Client/Server Communication

The default client/server communication method for Siebel Analytics Server is TCP/IP. To support this method, a Port field has been added to the Enter Logon Information screen in Siebel Analytics ODBC Wizard, and two parameters have been added to the Server section in the NQSConfig.INI file. For information about the new parameters in the configuration file, see CLIENT_MGMT_THREADS_MAX and RPC_SERVICE_OR_PORT. Siebel Analytics DCOM support is limited; it is recommended that you use TCP/IP by default. If you have an existing installation, modify it according to the following procedure.

To change the default Siebel Analytics Server client/server communication method

  1. Remove the system environment variable NQUIRE_DCOM.
  2. Close any open ODBC sessions and reopen the ODBC wizard to make changes.

    For more information about using Siebel Analytics ODBC Wizard, see Siebel Analytics Server Administration Guide.

NOTE:  The Siebel Analytics Server service needs to be started before you use the Siebel Analytics Server Administration Tool to open a repository in online mode. Opening a repository in online mode will not cause the service to start automatically, as it did in previous versions.
