Overview of Installing and Configuring Servers in a Siebel Deployment

Figure 1 illustrates the general process of installing and configuring the main server elements in a Siebel Business Applications deployment. Note the following:

  • You can install each item in sequence and perform its associated configuration tasks, or install all items and then configure them.
  • Database Configuration Utilities are installed once, typically with the first Siebel Server installed.
  • Multiple instances of Siebel Server and Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE) are typically installed for medium-sized or larger deployments.

For more details, see Process of Installing and Configuring Servers in a Siebel Deployment, Determining Your Installation and Configuration Method, and other topics.
