Options for Configuring the Siebel Web Server Extension
Running the SWSE Configuration Wizard is done on each Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE) instance, after SWSE installation.
Running this wizard assumes that you have performed all of the prerequisite configuration tasks: configuring the Siebel Gateway Name Server, Siebel Enterprise, SWSE logical profile, and Siebel Server. You would also have installed the Siebel database using the Database Configuration Wizard.
After you install SWSE, you run the SWSE Configuration Wizard to apply the SWSE logical profile that you previously created. For detailed information about creating and applying the SWSE logical profile, see Process of Configuring the Siebel Web Server Extension.
This wizard includes the following tasks:
- Apply an SWSE Logical Profile. Specifies the location of an SWSE logical profile that you previously created using the Siebel Configuration Wizard and applies the settings to this installed instance of SWSE, along with other settings that you specify using this task. This task updates the SWSE configuration files, eapps.cfg file and eapps_sia.cfg.
The eapps.cfg and eapps_sia.cfg files are located in
\bin. In this path, SWSE_ROOT is the SWSE installation directory.
Applying an SWSE logical profile also creates (or re-creates) on the Web server the virtual directories required for Siebel Business Applications.
On Microsoft Windows (with Microsoft IIS Web server), one or more batch files create the virtual directories for Siebel Business Applications. These batch files are located in the SWSE logical profile directory. Before configuring the SWSE, you can edit the applicable batch file to remove entries for virtual directories that you do not need. For more information about using Microsoft IIS, see Siebel Installation Guide for Microsoft Windows.
If you are using Siebel native load balancing, then generate the configuration file lbconfig.txt and place it in the SWSE logical profile location before you apply the logical profile. Perform these tasks as a second phase of SWSE configuration: after the initial SWSE configuration to get the system up and running and after installing and configuring all of the Siebel Servers that will participate in load balancing. For more information about configuring load balancing, see Process of Configuring Load Balancing for Siebel Business Applications.
- Add Language Support for the SWSE Configuration. Deploys any additional installed languages for an SWSE that you previously configured. This task applies only if both of the following are true:
- You have already initially configured the SWSE (Apply an SWSE Logical Profile task).
- You have already installed on the SWSE the new languages that you want to add as deployed languages.
In the screen where you specify languages to deploy, specify only the new languages that you want to deploy. See also Applying the SWSE Logical Profile.
Perform this task in conjunction with related language deployment tasks, such as to install and deploy languages on the Siebel Server. For more information, see About Installing and Deploying Siebel Business Applications with Multiple Languages.
NOTE: If you add (install) languages before having applied the SWSE logical profile, and you have not yet configured the SWSE, then do not perform this task. Instead, use the task Apply an SWSE Logical Profile, and specify all of the applicable languages that you want to deploy.
