Doing a Complete install of Siebel 8.2.2.4 on Oracle 11 r2, Win 2008R2. All from Scratch

Hi,

 

This is going to be a looong series of posts. I needed to install a new development environment, and I wanted to test the new Siebel 8.2.2.4 SIA with all the verticals available.

Installing Siebel is no small task, and this guide is not meant to be a full replacement for reading up on the procedure on supportweb (My Oracle Support) MOS, including installation guide in bookshelf, release notes, post installation information, bugs and what-have-you-not, I'll do my best to link to the different documents that may be relevant along the way.

The Installation will Guide you through:

It will not:

  • Teach you to install windows 2008R2

I'll assume the following, that you in advance prepare and install two Windows 2008R2 servers in a domain. I use Hyper-V services, its fast and effortless to get started on the deployment for a new development environment.

 

Lets Get Started, We will do the Oracle database first!

Read About the Installation of the Oracle Database here: Installing Oracle 11r2 on Windows 2008R2 Server Part 1

 

 

I´ll finish the writeup for all the bits and pieces over the next few weeks, and publish them as i get the time. Let me know if you have any comments!

 

Enjoy!

Using Subversion with Siebel Tools

I've for as long as i can remember been using SourceSafe integration for all my siebel projects. Thats all good and fine, but it is aging, and for other projects I'm now using subversion. So when i installed a complete siebel 8.2.2.4, i decided to move the source control integration from SourceSafe to SVN.

First off, Siebel is not really heping you here, the default source control file installed with 8.2.2.4 looks like the source control file back in Siebel 6.

Researching a little on the net, provided lots of discussions if siebel can integrate with SVN, and the answer to that question is yes - it can. But if you come from a development background that is non siebel, then I might as well call it as it is, the source integration will only cover objects modified directly in tools, and it is solely a change log, allowing you to backtrack changes in time to a specific object. Its not a build repository, or even a complete picture of the changes that may be within one version of Siebel (ie. non-metadata changes are not included).

The batch file srcctrl.bat needs a lot of modification to work, luckily there was this one guy Michael Williams, who posted a good looking svn enabled srcctrl.bat file.

Use the file below as your starting point.

Replace the elements in [square brackets] in above file, and you are ready to go.

I Use Subversion 1.7.x, SVNServer (std Edition) and Siebel Tools 8.2.2.4

 

Note: Rename the source control batch file (eg. to svn_srcctrl.bat) as siebel will overwrite the srcctrl.bat file on patches and updates :-(

 

Enjoy!
