Use this procedure to install the Siebel server and configure the Siebel server and Siebel database on local disks of physical hosts. To install the Siebel server on the global file system, see How to Install the Siebel Server and Siebel Database on the Global File System.
To install the Siebel server on the local disks of the physical hosts, install the software on any one node of the cluster.
Install the Siebel server by following the instructions in the Siebel installation documentation and the latest release notes.
Do not use the Autostart feature. When prompted, configure Autostart=No.
When prompted to enter the gateway hostname, enter the logical hostname for the Siebel gateway.
Verify that the siebenv.sh file is under server_root and is owned by the user who will launch the Siebel server.
The .hushlogin file prevents failure of a cluster node's public network from causing an attempt to start, stop, or probe the service to time out.
Ensure that a database such as HA Oracle is configured for Siebel and that the database is online.
Use the Siebel documentation to configure and populate the Siebel database.
Create a database user (for example, dbuser/dbpassword) with permission to connect to the Siebel database for use by the Sun Cluster HA for Siebel Fault Monitor.
Log in as the user who will launch the Siebel server and manually start the Siebel server.
Run srvrmgr to change the configuration of Siebel server to enable Siebel server to run in a cluster.
If you are using Siebel 7.7 or later version, change the ServerHostAddress parameter to the IP address of the Siebel server's logical host name resource.
$ srvrmgr:hasiebel> change param ServerHostAddress=lhaddr for server hasiebel
If you are using a version of Siebel earlier than 7.7, change the HOST parameter to the logical hostname for the Siebel server.
$ srvrmgr:hasiebel> change param Host=lhname for server hasiebel
These changes take effect when the Siebel server is started under Sun Cluster control.
Replicate the installation on all of the remaining nodes of the cluster.
# rdist -c server_root hostname:server_root
Verify that the ownerships and permissions of files and directories in the Siebel gateway installation are identical on all nodes of the cluster.
