Just like your previous question about Siebel:  The documentation should tell you this.  If you are working towards a Siebel install, you should have an account team working with you.  They should also be able to tell you the minimum.

I am doing it by myself. and asked to install the oracle Siebel in the Windows env.
The docs are kind of not straight forward. that is why I am looking some help.

My Siebel knowledge is very old and they have likely changed a lot since then.  Hopefully another Expert has up to date knowledge.

Great gokuro. Exactly this kind of info I was looking for appreciate. One more thing the RDBMS is oracle
11g

Commented:
you should be able to install oracle 11g on the same windows host as well. This is a common setup in dev, eval environment.

I would not recommend it for production instance.

Great. In the windows environment (windows server 2003/2008) what disk partition is recommended.
or everything can be installed on C: or D: drive?

Commented:
no recommendation really, you have to consider where to put the file system if you will have any significant number of file attachments stored in Siebel.

Standard best practices for database setup still apply.

Once the install is complete. How a client is going to connect to the server?
Does he need the oracle client installed on their system?

Commented:
client accesses siebel via web browser, must be IE 7 or 8, perhaps IE 9 before too long.

First time accessed the web site will install some active x controls, other than those no client install.

Must have java runtime installed on clients also.

This is assuming you are using the high interactivity client for employee facing applications.

Standard interactivity works in just about any browser.
