Siebel Server Cloning • Installation Cloning • Siebel server cloning • Enterprise cloning • Patch Deployment • Capture installation changes • Apply changes to target environments • Server Configuration Deployment • Extract server configuration settings • Migrate server configurations to target environmentsSiebel Server Cloning is available in 18.104.22.168+/22.214.171.124+ InnovationPacks.
Business Benefits• Reduce total cost of operations of Siebel installation and patching• Improve Siebel server manageability through faster and reliable server provisioning
Siebel Server Cloning 2 Test Environment 1 Source Environment 2Step 1: create snapshot from source Production EnvironmentStep 2: apply snapshot to target
Prerequisites & Scope• Prerequisites • JRE 6 is required on both Source and Target machines. • Source and Target directory structure must be same. • Configure database client on the target machine prior to cloning • Snapshot location must be accessible from Target machine.• Scope • Includes Siebel Enterprise, Siebel Server and SWSE cloning • Siebel Database Configuration Utilities, Siebel EAI and Siebel Management Server are also included if your Siebel Server instance already has these modules installed. Re-configuration of MS is needed on the target instance. • Database & web server cloning is not included. • Manual Web Server cloning is needed on target machine before application URL can be brought up.

Usage Scenarios• Full Clone: Siebel Gateway, Enterprise, Siebel Server and SWSE Logical Profile is installed on the same host. Clone the full deck from source to target.• Delta Clone: Gateway, Enterprise, Siebel Server and SWSE Logical Profile is installed on the same host. Clone incremental changes from source to target.• Single Enterprise, multiple Siebel Servers
Usage Scenarios• Clone a Siebel Server and point it to an existing Siebel Gateway • Set up an instance where you have configured Siebel Gateway and Enterprise (instance #3) • Clone Siebel Server from your Source instance • On Target/Staging machine, set create Gateway=N & Import Enterprise=N • On Target/Staging machine, set Target Gateway Server Host Name in property file and point it to instance #3 • Import Siebel configuration. This will import Siebel configuration into instance #3.• Siebel Gateway is never get cloned. We either create a new one on target or connect to an existing Siebel Gateway.
Known Limitations• Cloning will only clone the software and server configuration. After cloning, users need to manually create application shortcuts on target instance.• Database and Web Server clone is not included.• Make sure the clone utility on Unix has full execute permissions• Server configuration cloning cannot be executed separately
