This topic is part of About Installing Siebel Business Applications.
Siebel CRM software releases and their various installation methods have evolved significantly. Some of the traditional distinctions between types of releases no longer apply. The current release is Siebel CRM version 126.96.36.199 or Siebel CRM version 188.8.131.52. The term Siebel Innovation Pack 2013 represents both of these releases.
An innovation pack includes new application functionality. The current releases are also Siebel Fix Pack releases. They are also called patch releases, because they can also be installed as a patch release for an existing installation. Every Siebel Fix Pack release is not necessarily an innovation pack. Requirements that apply to innovation packs do not necessarily apply to fix packs.
This guide, Siebel Installation Guide for the operating system you are using, is for installing the current release. This guide is concerned only with installers that are relevant for the current release. Patch installation instructions were formerly published in the Siebel Maintenance Release Guide on My Oracle Support but are now described in this guide.
You install Siebel Enterprise Server and Siebel Web Server Extension as a new installation of the current version of the software. For existing installations, you can also perform a new type of patch installation called a migration installation. For more information, see Installation-Related Changes for Siebel Innovation Pack 2013.
NOTE: For an existing installation, running Incremental Repository Merge is required for Siebel Innovation Pack 2013. For more information, see About Database Updates for Siebel CRM Version 184.108.40.206 or Version 220.127.116.11.
You install Siebel Web Client (Siebel Mobile Web Client or Siebel Developer Web Client), Siebel Tools Client, and Siebel Management Server in two phases using installers of two different versions. You run each installer from its version-specific network image.
Table 20 lists the major Siebel CRM installable modules and shows which versions support which installation methods in order to install the current release for a new installation or an existing installation.
Patch releases are also called maintenance releases, and they include both Siebel Fix Pack releases and Siebel Quick Fix releases. You can install the Siebel Fix Pack representing the current release (version 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124) to patch an existing installation of version 8.1.1 or 8.1.1.x or version 8.2.2 or 8.2.2.x.
NOTE: You must verify the availability, characteristics, and requirements of any future releases, including any Siebel CRM version 8.1.1.x or 8.2.2.x releases, that might also be covered by this guide (or updated versions of it) or by other documentation. The installation tasks and requirements for all future releases are subject to change.
For information about the features and fixes provided in particular maintenance releases for your Siebel Business Applications and about the configuration requirements for new features, see the applicable Siebel Maintenance Release Guide on My Oracle Support. For information about setting up and using Incremental Repository Merge, see Siebel Database Upgrade Guide.
Typically, no additional Siebel Configuration Wizard tasks are associated with a patch installation (or migration installation). You would not run the Siebel Configuration Wizard to configure a module that was already configured. However, requirements might vary for a given release, or for using particular functionality.
