Siebel Server Installation Guide for Microsoft Windows > Implementing Load-Balancing with Central Dispatch >

Installation Tasks for Central Dispatch

You must install Central Dispatch on each Siebel Server on which you want to employ load-balancing, and on any machines that will be dedicated for the Central Dispatch primary scheduler and backup scheduler.

NOTE:  Make sure you have the Resonate Administrative Mode account and Resonate Monitor Mode account created as described in Preparing for the Installation.

Also consider the following guidelines:

CAUTION:  Do not use Microsoft Terminal Services to remotely install Central Dispatch. Central Dispatch installs a network driver that may interrupt the network connection during installation, thereby terminating Central Dispatch installation prematurely.

  2. Navigate to the following directory:
  3. windows_server_ancillary_2\Thirdpty\resonate\enu\win2k

    NOTE:  Central Dispatch installation is not language-dependent. Navigate to the enu directory regardless of the language in which you are deploying your Siebel applications.

  4. Start the Central Dispatch installer by double-clicking SETUP.EXE, and when the Welcome dialog box appears, click Next.
  5. Follow the instruction in the Resonate Central Dispatch and Resonate Commander Installation Guide, available on the Siebel eBusiness Third-Party Bookshelf. However, at the Select Component screen, select only the following Central Dispatch components:
