Archiving Unneeded Siebel Repositories
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.
Perform this task before running the Database Server Configuration Utilities in upgrep mode for the first time in an environment.
The upgrep mode scripts expect only the Siebel Repository to be present. If you have multiple repositories, you must export them to archive files and then delete them from the database.
Because the upgrade changes the schema of the database, in most cases you cannot import these archived repositories into the upgraded database. If you want to access the archived repositories, you must import them into a database that has the same schema as the one from which they were exported.
To archive unneeded repositories
- Export all repositories.
- Place exported repository files in a safe location.
- In the Siebel Database, delete all repositories except the Siebel Repository.
