This topic is part of Planning Your Siebel Deployment.
For more information about configuring the RDBMS, see Configuring the RDBMS. For more information about configuring the Siebel database after installing Siebel Enterprise Server, see Installing the Siebel Database on the RDBMS.
In a database environment that is enabled for Unicode, you can install any of the available Siebel language packs. However, in a database environment that is not enabled for Unicode, you must consider the correlation of the language packs that you want to install and the characters supported by your database code page. For example, in a Western European code page database, you can only install Western European language packs, such as U.S. English, French, Spanish, or German language packs. In a Japanese code page database, you can only install Japanese or U.S. English language packs. The installed languages and the code page of the operating system on which your Siebel Server runs must match those of your Siebel database instance.
Use the ODBC driver versions listed in the Certifications tab on My Oracle Support for your chosen RDBMS for Siebel Servers, Siebel Tools, and Siebel Developer Web Clients (if applicable). Make sure that ODBC connectivity uses TCP/IP as the transport layer protocol for your Siebel Servers, Siebel Tools, and Siebel Developer Web Clients.
This guide describes installation of Siebel modules for each supported RDBMS, with the exception of IBM DB2 for z/OS. (This database product was formerly referred to in some Siebel Bookshelf documentation as IBM DB2 UDB for z/OS and OS/390.)
Customers for IBM DB2 for z/OS require this guide (Siebel Installation Guide for the operating system you are using) and Implementing Siebel Business Applications on DB2 for z/OS. Both of these guides are available on the Siebel Bookshelf.
NOTE: In this guide, Configuring the RDBMS and Installing the Siebel Database on the RDBMS do not apply to customers using DB2 for z/OS. Instead, see Implementing Siebel Business Applications on DB2 for z/OS for database-related content. If you are upgrading on this platform, then see also Siebel Database Upgrade Guide for DB2 for z/OS. For information about relevant requirements related to authentication for the Siebel Gateway Name Server, see Requirements for Siebel Gateway Name Server Authentication.
Implementing Siebel Business Applications on DB2 for z/OS includes, but is not limited to, topics such as special security issues for this RDBMS, installing the Siebel schema, performance guidelines for use of this RDBMS with Siebel Business Applications, and specific procedures for moving data from development to production. Also consult all of the other applicable Siebel Bookshelf documentation, such as Siebel Security Guide.
