Before You Install Hummingbird Search Server

Siebel Search uses Hummingbird SearchServer 5.0. Hummingbird SearchServer 5.0 server can be installed on an AIX or Solaris computer.

CAUTION:  It is recommended that the Hummingbird SearchServer server be installed on the designated Siebel Server before any Siebel software installations can be performed. If you need to install Hummingbird SearchServer after a Siebel Server installation, see Configuring a Previously Installed Siebel Server as a Search Server Under UNIX.

For information about supported versions of AIX or Solaris operating systems see the system requirements and supported platforms documentation for your Siebel application.

NOTE:  In order to use Siebel Search, you will need to edit the library path variable in the Siebel script used for setting environment variables (siebenv.csh or so that the library variable includes the Hummingbird library path. For example, you would edit the library path in the script as follows: "setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /export/home/fulcrum/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH" (for Solaris), or "setenv LIBPATH /export/home/fulcrum/lib:$LIBPATH" (for AIX), or "setenv SHLIB_PATH /export/home/fulcrum/lib:$ SHLIB_PATH" (for HP-UX). If you do not add this to the library path and source the new Siebel script before you start the siebel servers, you may not be able to access the Search Indices View or any valid Search Categories in Search Center.

Make sure that the following requirements are met before you begin the installation process:
