Direct Server Synchronization Checklist

Use the following checklist to troubleshoot problems you encounter using Direct Server Sync.

  • Did you install all client and server components successfully?
  • Is there a PDA Object Manager (OM) running on the Siebel Server?
  • Did you bounce the IIS, SWE, and Siebel Server after installation?
  • Do you have network access to the URL for DSS? Can you ping the IIS server from inside and, if applicable, from outside the firewall?
  • Can you successfully run a SWE command?
  • Do you have the correct SyncURL defined in the setup.ini file?
  • Is the network connection working from the device? Try Pocket Internet Explorer.
  • If you have problems logging in, check to make sure that you can use the same credentials to log into the desktop client.
  • Remember to keep a one to one ratio of users to devices. Only a single user can log in to synchronize each device. Failure to do so causes data corruption.

When using a SRF with a custom configuration and a synchronization error occurs during initialization, follow the steps below to troubleshoot problems:

To troubleshoot Direct Server Synchronization configuration errors

  1. Turn on synchronization logging for your Siebel Handheld application to 5 and look for more error details in the Synchronization OM log of your Siebel Handheld application.

    For more information about logging, see Configuring Logging Levels for Direct Server Synchronization.

  2. Use the Validate function in Siebel Tools to look for a configuration error.
  3. Remove the Siebel Handheld application views from user responsibility until synchronization passes the error point.
  4. Remove DefaultBusObjs from the Administration - Mobile screen, Application Administration, then the Settings view until synchronization passes the error point.
