Implementing Siebel Business Applications on DB2 for z/OS > Importing the Repository and Performing Postinstallation Tasks >
Installing Multilingual Seed Data
This task is a step in the Process of Completing the Siebel Database Implementation.
If your organization deploys internationally and, therefore, requires data to be in multiple languages, you must install multilingual seed data (for example, lists of views, responsibilities, or system preferences). You install this seed data by adding new language packs to your database after you install the base language for your database. These language packs populate the List of Values (LOV) with seed data in the new language.
You must successfully install seed data in your base language before you can add seed data in other languages to your database.
NOTE: You cannot add secondary languages to the Siebel database for an Enterprise Server unless you have already installed the relevant language pack on the associated Siebel Server.
To install multilingual seed data
- Install the appropriate Language Pack on the Siebel Server. Follow the instructions for adding a new language to an existing instance as described in Siebel Installation Guide for the operating system you are using.
- When installation is completed, launch the Database Configuration Wizard by following the instructions under Performing a Standard Installation.
- When the Select Installation Operation screen appears (Step 7), select Add a language to an existing Siebel Database, and then click Next.
NOTE: To add seed data in a new language to your database, you must have already imported your repository in its base language.
The Base Language screen appears and displays the languages you have installed for your Siebel database.
- In the Base Language screen, specify which of the installed languages is the one in which you want to primarily run your database. (This is your base language.)
To continue, click Next.
NOTE: The Language Selection screen appears only if you have installed the files for multiple Siebel Language Packs. Installation of multiple Language Packs can occur either during your initial installation of Siebel Business Applications or at a later time.
- In the Language Selection screen, specify the new language you are adding for this database.
To continue, click Next.
- On the ODBC Data Source Name screen, enter the ODBC Data Source Name. The Siebel Server installation process automatically creates the data source, using the format EnterpriseName_DSN. Accept the default name of the ODBC data source or enter the database alias you prefer to use for the data source.
NOTE: Database aliases must be registered within DB2 Connect. If you define database aliases, you must add the
TXNISOLATION parameter to the database alias entry in the db2cli.ini file and set it to have a value of 1. For information on setting values in the db2cli.ini file, refer to the relevant IBM documentation.
- On the Siebel Database User Name screen, enter the Database User Name.
Type the ID (for example, SADMIN) used to log into the Siebel database. This user ID must be part of the security group (secondary authorization group) with authorization to set the current SQLID to the schema name.
- On the Siebel Database Password screen, enter the password for the ID used to log into the Siebel database.
Retype the password to confirm it, then click Next.
- On the Siebel Schema Qualifier screen, enter the character ID that identifies the Siebel Schema owner, for example, SIEBTO.
NOTE: This ID can be up to eight characters in length, must be in uppercase, must start with a letter, and cannot include any special characters. This value is the SQL Authorization ID stored in the CURRENT SQLID special register.
- On the Security Group ID/Grantee screen, type the group ID for which schema access is being granted, for example, SSEROLE. Click Next.
For more information about the group authorization ID privileges, see Security Concepts for a DB2 for z/OS Environment.
- The Repository Name screen appears. Type the name of your Siebel Repository or accept the displayed default name.
To continue, click Next.
- On the Log Output Directory screen, enter the name of the directory where you want the log files to be generated, and click Next.
By default, the files are created in SIEBSRVR_ROOT
\log\install_lang (Windows) or SIEBSRVR_ROOT
- Save the configuration information you have entered and launch the Siebel Upgrade wizard as described in the following topics:
- To begin, click OK.
A window appears, displaying information about installation activities. A message appears when the installation is completed.
To verify that the installation was successful, review the log files as described in About the Siebel Log Files.
- When you have finished adding a language to your database, you need to import the Siebel Repository for the language you have just added. For information on completing this task, see Importing a New Language to Your Repository.
- After you have added a language to the Siebel database, your seed data is multilingual so you must enable the multilingual list of values (MLOV) capability within Siebel Business Applications. You must also enable individual LOVs associated with the language. For information on multilingual deployments, see Siebel Global Deployment Guide and Configuring Siebel Business Applications.
