Installing the Database Server Software on Oracle

Complete the steps below to install the Siebel Database Server files. You must already have a Siebel Server installed on this computer.

To install the Siebel Database Server software

  1. Insert the Windows Server Programs Siebel Enterprise Server Base CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive of the chosen server (assumed here to be D:).
  2. In Windows Explorer, double-click seawinsesbase or siawinsesbase, as appropriate to the Siebel applications that you are installing.
  3. Navigate to:
  4. D:\windows_server_ses_base\ses and double-click setup.exe

    The Welcome to InstallShield Wizard for Siebel Enterprise Server screen appears.

  5. Click Next.
  6. If you have already installed the Siebel Server on the same machine, the installer displays the message that an existing installation has been found.

  7. Depending on whether you are installing your Siebel Database Server or adding a new language to an existing instance, take the appropriate action:
  8. Select the displayed default directory for file installation or use the Browse button to select a different drive or directory, and then click Next.
  9. The installer prompts you to select the server that you want to install.

  10. Select from the following options and click Next:
  11. Choose the type of Siebel Database Server installation to execute from the following options; then click Next to continue:
  12. Select the database platform components that you want to install and click Next.
  13. CAUTION:  If you perform a Custom installation, make sure to select Siebel Sample Database.

  14. Confirm the Language Pack or Packs you are installing for the Siebel Database Server and click Next.
  15. Servers are installed, at a minimum, with the primary language in which the server will be run. This is the primary(base) language for your Enterprise. Optionally, you can install one or more additional languages.

    NOTE:  In a Unicode-enabled database environment, you can install any of the available Siebel language packs. In a non-Unicode database environment, you must consider the correlation of the language packs you want to install and the characters supported by your database code page. For example, in a Western European code page database, you can only install Western European language packs such as English, French, Spanish, or German language packs. And in a Japanese code page database, you can only install Japanese or English language packs.

    For a list of supported code pages and encoding strategies, see System Requirements and Supported Platforms.

    The installer prompts you that the setup program will install program shortcuts to your Program Folder with the name Siebel Enterprise Server 7.x.x.

  16. Click Next and the installer adds program icons to a folder in the Windows Program file called Siebel Enterprise Server 7.x.x.
  17. NOTE:  To override the default action and install the program icons to a different Program folder in the list under Existing Folders, enter the name for that folder.

    The installer displays the location into which it will install the Siebel Database Server and any other servers you have elected to install. It also displays the file size.

    After all server files you specified, have been installed, a warning screen appears, stating:

    Setup did not find the Siebel Language Code language pack on the current media. Please insert the Siebel Language Code language pack CD and select setup.exe.

  18. Click OK.
  19. A dialog box titled Insert CD for language Language Pack appears (where language stands for the Language Pack you are installing), and displays a file called siebel.ini. However, you do not need to do anything with this file.

  20. Remove the current CD from the drive and insert the appropriate Language Pack CD.
  21. Locate seawinseslanguage or siawinseslanguage, as appropriate, where language stands for the Language Pack you are installing, and double-click it.
    1. Click OK, but do not do so until you have removed the first CD and inserted the second language CD.
    2. When all files on the second language CD have been installed, you will be prompted to reinsert the first language CD.

    3. Reinsert the first language CD and click OK.
    4. After a short time, a message box appears, stating:

    Please reinsert the base CD and browse to setup.exe to enable setup to continue.

  22. Click OK.
  23. Remove the current CD from the drive and insert the Windows Server Programs Siebel Enterprise Server Base CD into the CD-ROM drive again.
  24. Navigate to windows_server_ses_ base > ses and open setup.exe.
  25. After all server files specified have been installed, the installer displays the message:

    The InstallShield Wizard has successfully installed the Siebel Enterprise Server. Click Finish to exit the Wizard.

  26. Click Finish.
  27. If you would like to view events that occurred during the installation, you can access the log generated by the installer at SIEBEL_ROOT\log.txt.
