Installing Siebel Business Applications from a Remote Server Computer

This topic is part of Planning Your Siebel Deployment.

If you are installing server-based Siebel modules in GUI mode from a remote server computer, then you must set the DISPLAY variable to display the Java installer user interface on your local computer. For example, depending on your shell:

export DISPLAY=mycomputer:0.0


setenv DISPLAY mycomputer:0.0

In this command, mycomputer is the computer name or IP address of your local workstation computer.

You might be able to test that your display works correctly on your local computer by entering:


You can also verify the IP address by entering:


If the clock does not appear on your local computer, then issue the following command on your local computer:

xhost +

If you are using X-connectivity software to access the UNIX computer from a Windows computer, then the installer might fail or stop responding. If this is the case, then try using a later version of the X-connectivity software.

NOTE:  For additional information, refer to vendor or other documentation for your UNIX operating system, or contact your system administrator for assistance.
