Connecting to a clustered Siebel environment
To connect to a Siebel server in a clustered environment, use a siebel.properties file.
Before you begin
Ensure the external software dependencies for Siebel have been set up, as described in Adding external software dependencies for Siebel.
About this task
To connect to a Siebel server in a clustered environment, use the siebel.conmgr.virtualhosts property in the siebel.properties file to list the Siebel servers in the cluster.
The siebel.conmgr.virtualhosts property is used to list groups of servers with the same function. An incoming call attempts to connect to each server in a group in turn.
The only property in the siebel.properties file that IBM® Integration Bus supports is siebel.conmgr.virtualhosts. Information message BIP3427 indicates if a siebel.properties file is being used, and error message BIP3428 indicates if a problem occurs when attempting to access the siebel.properties file.
When the list of servers has been set up in the siebel.properties file, you specify the location of the file by using a configurable service, as described in the following steps.
- If you do not already have a siebel.properties file,
create one with a siebel.conmgr.virtualhosts property
that lists the Siebel servers in the cluster. Servers are listed by using a comma separated list in the format hostname:port.
- Set the location of the siebel.properties file
by using the mqsichangeproperties command;
mqsichangeproperties MYBROKER -c EISProviders -o Siebel -n siebelPropertiesURL -v C:\siebel.properties
