Installing Siebel 8.2.2.4 on Windows 2008R2 Server Part 2

Hi,

Welcome to Installing Siebel 8.2.2.4 on Windows 2008R2 Server Part 2 of the series

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

In this part we will configure prerequisite software to support the siebel installation. We will install more software as we go along, where appropriate. But there is a lot of prerequisite software to install.

Siebel 8 is still a 32 bit application, running on a x64 os+machine, that means 32 bit versions of all basic software needs to be installed. Oh Oracle/Siebel get that fixed! Give us a native x64 build – thanks! (note to self and others – write to supportweb and ask for this!).

To Install a Siebel Development Server we will go through the following steps

  1. Install the Prerequsite Software (this step)
  2. Install and Configure the Siebel Enterprise Server
  3. Install and Configure the Siebel Database Server
  4. Install and Configure the Siebel Server
  5. Install and Configure the Siebel Web Server
  6. Patching and Postinstallation Tasks
  7. Installing Siebel Charts
  8. Enabling OpenUI

Here’s the initial list of things you will install and configure in this part:

  • install jre x64
  • install jre x32
  • install oracle client x64 version
  • install oracle client x32 version
  • Install and configure Microsoft Office 2007 x32 version
  • Create the Siebel File Share

Notice that I Install the x32 versions last, to keep my path env. variable in order like this:

Installing Siebel 8.2.2.4 on Windows 2008R2 Server Part 1

Hi,

Welcome to Installing Siebel 8.2.2.4 on Windows 2008R2 Server Part 1 of the series

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

In this part we will install the Siebel Application server. This server will house a complete Siebel development server. Production servers should generally not be deployed on a single instance as we do here, but the installation of the development server demonstrates that it is possible, this walk-through will focus only on the development server installation.

Before we begin prepare the Siebel Development Server by doing the following steps:

  • install win 2008r2 operating system
  • join domain
  • update operating system with latest patches
  • install your favorite tools (mine are notepad++, procmon from sysinternals and winrar)

To Install a Siebel Development Server we will go through the following steps

  1. Install the Prerequsite Software
  2. Install and Configure the Siebel Enterprise Server
  3. Install and Configure the Siebel Database Server
  4. Install and Configure the Siebel Server
  5. Install and Configure the Siebel Web Server
  6. Patching and Postinstallation Tasks
  7. Installing Siebel Charts
  8. Enabling OpenUI

I’m still doing the writeup of many of the steps, as I bring them online I’ll update the links accordingly.

Installing Oracle 11r2 on Windows 2008R2 Server Part 3

Hi,

Welcome to Installing Oracle 11r2 on Windows 2008R2 Server Part 3 of the series

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

In this part we will

  • Configure the Oracle Listener
  • Verify and Configure Windows Services
  • Configure the Windows Firewall
  • Do Connectivity Tests

The listener will provide access to the database instance we just created in Part 2. If you desire one listener can cater to more than on database instance on the same port, or you can chose to create multiple listeners on different ports, on for each database instance on the box. The latter provides better granularity control. That’s how I will do my install.

To Install an Oracle database we will go through the following steps

  1. Install the Oracle Database Software This was completed in Part 1 Here
  2. Configure the Oracle Database This was completed in Part 2 Here
  3. Configure the Listener
  4. Verify & Configure Windows Services
  5. Configure Windows Firewall
  6. Do Connectivity Tests

To Configure an oracle listener you need to run the netca from a command prompt. Follow the screenshots, and step guide below to configure the database for use as a Siebel development server.

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!
