This topic is part of About Installing Siebel Business Applications.
Siebel CRM software releases and their various installation methods have evolved significantly. New types of releases are provide, and some of the traditional types of releases no longer apply. The current release is Siebel CRM version 188.8.131.52 or version 184.108.40.206. The term Siebel Innovation Pack 2013 represents both of these releases. This book describes the tasks and requirements that apply for the current release.
An innovation pack release is similar to a traditional Siebel Fix Pack release, but includes new application functionality. Although installation methods are evolving, innovation pack releases are also called patch releases, because they can also be installed as a patch release for an existing installation. Siebel Fix Pack releases are no longer provided.
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, which were formerly published in the Siebel Maintenance Release Guide on My Oracle Support, 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 220.127.116.11 or Version 18.104.22.168.
You install Siebel Web Client (Siebel Mobile Web Client or Developer Web Client), Siebel Tools, and Siebel Management Server in two phases using installers of two different versions. You run each installer from its version-specific network image.
Table 21 lists the major Siebel CRM installable modules and shows which versions support which installation methods in order to install the current release as a new installation or as a patch for an existing installation.
For information about the features and fixes provided in particular releases for your Siebel Business Applications, including Siebel Innovation Packs and prior Siebel Fix Pack releases, 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.
Individual Siebel Quick Fix releases are no longer provided for the current release, Siebel CRM version 22.214.171.124 or version 126.96.36.199. Instead, monthly Siebel Patchset releases are provided, each of which provides several fixes. The fixes are provided on a cumulative basis in each Siebel Patchset release. In some cases, installing a particular Siebel Patchset release might be required. This guide does not describe installing or uninstalling Siebel Patchset releases.
NOTE: You must verify the availability, characteristics, and requirements of any future releases, including any Siebel CRM version 8.1.1.x or version 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.
