Siebel Database Upgrade Guide > Basic Database Preparations for a Siebel Upgrade >

Verifying Siebel Database Connectivity

Upgrades from: All Supported Siebel releases.

Environments: Development, production test, production.

Databases: All databases.

This topic is part of an upgrade process. See How to Perform a Siebel Database Upgrade.

From the production test environment, you must be able to make ODBC connections to both the Siebel Database in the development environment and the Siebel Database in the production environment. Verify that you can define these ODBC connections in the production test environment.

If you cannot connect to these databases from the production test environment, create a service request (SR) on OracleMetalink 3, or contact your Oracle sales representative for Oracle Advanced Customer Services to request assistance from Oracle's Application Expert Services.

In the production environment, you do not have to define an ODBC connection to the development environment Siebel Database or the production test environment Siebel Database.
