Before You Start Your Siebel Application Installation

Before you start your Siebel eBusiness Applications installation, complete the following steps:

  1. Read System Requirements and Supported Platforms and Release Notes for the current release to be sure you understand the supported hardware, operating system platforms, RDBMS platforms, supported third-party product combinations, plus any last-minute information regarding this release of Siebel eBusiness Applications.
  2. If you are upgrading from a previous version of Siebel eBusiness Applications, refer to the Upgrade Guide for the operating system you are using.
  3. Carefully read Preparing for the Installation and fill out the Deployment Planning Worksheet, as described in the first section of that chapter.
  4. Carefully read the relevant server installation chapters in this guide to make sure that you understand the complete installation process for your operating system and RDBMS platform combination.
  5. Carefully read the relevant client installation chapters in Siebel Web Client Administration Guide even if you do not plan to deploy a mobile Web client, since this guide also offers information about other supported client types.
  6. Refer to any pre-installation information in the guides for those products for which you bought a license, available on the Siebel Bookshelf.
  7. Prepare a comprehensive installation schedule that includes a timeline for completing specific pre-installation and post-installation tasks, including thorough testing of the Siebel environment.
