Issue/Introduction


We're running an Agent for Siebel IP7, and we've recently upgraded to
Siebel IP15.  For that, we'd like to get the download link for the ERP
Agent for Siebel on Siebel IP15, and the documentation related to it
as it needs to be configured as 5.x Agent.

Where can we find that ?
 

Environment

 

ERP Agent for Siebel 12.51

 

Resolution

At first glance, with Siebel IP15 you can only use the ERP Agent 12.51
on SunOS and RedHat. Here are the details for download, support matrix
and documentation you requested.

The version 12.51 can also work in 5x mode, as stated by the Release 
notes :

    Chapter 3: New Features 

    Agent Communication Model 

      This product now communicates with the Policy Server using the trusted host 
      communication model. 

  CA_SSO_Agent_for_Siebel_Release_ENU.pdf 

this means that now the ERP Agent for Siebel can work also with the 
trusted host model (5x). On previous version, it can't. 

Configuring in 4x version is supported with IP15. 

You should not use these libraries on the Policy Server : 

  libnpssessionlinker.so - Package: NPSSessionLinker V5.60.0423.557 
  libnpssessionlinker.so - Component: NPSSessionLinker Configuration Active Response V5.60.0423.557 (Dec 15 2011 12:17:11) 

but the ones that are shipped with the Session Linker 12.52
