This article requires that you have an Amazon AWS instance set up, as detailed in the previous article in this series.

Downloading installation files should be something which is fairly simple, however in the Oracle scheme of things, the simplest of things can sometimes be the toughest. The first thing which needs to be done before the download is to get a proper browser installed on our Amazon instances, rather than the default Internet Explorer 11. For this article, we will use Chrome as our preferred browser.

We need the following applications other than the Siebel installation files.

  1. Java Development Kit (the latest version): While the download of the Siebel installation files does not require this, the extract and the creation of the installation image definitely requires this.
  2. Siebel Installation Files.
  3. Oracle Database Server Installation files.

The first step is to log on to the server we created (see previous article) with the 200 GB volume for the D drive. The zip files are fairly large and will need the additional disk space.

Create a folder called Software on the volume.

Create 2 subfolders in this folder called Siebel_Install_Zips and Oracle_Database_Zips.

Start the Chrome browser. Change the download location to D:\Software. This is available in Settings->Advanced Settings->Downloads.

Download Java

Use Chrome to navigate to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html.

Accept the license agreement and Download the file jdk-8u71-windows-x64.exe.

Download the Siebel Installation Files

Change the Download folder on Chrome to D:\Software\Siebel_Install_Zips. Navigate to edelivery.oracle.com (a valid Oracle account is required).

Sign in to the website with your Oracle account.

Accept the export restrictions as applicable. Search for “Siebel CRM Base”.

The platform needs to be set to Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit).

Click Select once the Windows 64 Bit is selected.

Click on continue. Select the Available release and click on Continue.

Accept the Oracle Terms and restrictions and click on Continue.

Click on Continue.

Click on Continue and accept the license agreement.

  • V47115-01_2of2.zip: Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1.0.2.0) for Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)

The client does not need to be downloaded as the Oracle Client supported by Siebel is a part of the Siebel installation zip files.

This concludes the download of the relevant files required for a basic Siebel Installation. The next article in the series covers what to do with these downloaded files and how to create a Siebel installation image.
