We have experienced some strange behavior after installing the 22.214.171.124 patch.
After installing the patch for the Siebel Server/Gateway/SWEApp - following the steps in the 126.96.36.199 guide - it was only possible to access the application using the dedicated client. After uninstalling the 188.8.131.52 patch the application is still only accessible through the dedicated client and we have seen crashes on the server every time we reboot the macine (the siebmtshmw.exe process). The crashes disappear after a while.
We would appreciate your assistance in getting the environment back in better shape and some advice (and any known issues) regarding patch 184.108.40.206.
Customer encountered application crashes with the following call stack after applying MR 220.127.116.11:
- CALL STACK -
sslcshar +0x17c5c = SSstring::operator=() +0xc
sscfdm +0x916ac = CSSSqlBCDef::AddIdField() +0x2fc
sscfdm +0x9182e = CSSSqlBCDef::AddJoinSystemFields() +0x9e
sscfdm +0x4aeeb = CSSFieldList::ResetBCFieldIndexes() +0x205eb
sscfdm +0x54287 = CSSFieldList::ResetBCFieldIndexes() +0x29987
sscfdm +0x54448 = CSSFieldList::ResetBCFieldIndexes() +0x29b48
sscfdm +0x8e479 = CSSSqlBCDef::ValidateSqlFieldDef() +0x69
sscfdm +0x51b4c = CSSFieldList::ResetBCFieldIndexes() +0x2724c
The behavior has been replicated using the Siebel dedicated client against the customer Local DB.
Upon further investigation of the log file, crash file and FDR file, it was determined that incorrect configuration was causing these crashes.
The Siebel client log file included the following error messages just before the crash occurred:
ObjMgrSRFLog Warning 2 0 2005-12-08 12:18:19 Invalid Configuration: Cannot Specify Validation on Multi-Valued Field (Condition Amount) for BusComp (INS Vehicle)
ObjMgrQueryLog Warning 2 0 2005-12-08 12:18:19 (query.cpp (11594)) SBL-DAT-00411: The 'IFF' function is not supported.
ObjMgrSRFLog Warning 2 0 2005-12-08 12:18:20 (cdf.cpp (2607)) SBL-DAT-00144: Could not find 'Table' named 'S_EMPLOYEE'. This object is inactive or nonexistent.
Upon taking the following changes in Siebel Tools the crash was no longer encountered:
- Removing the validation ">=0" from the Condition Amount field in BC INS Vehicle
- In Siebel Tools > Flat Tab, please search for all Calculated Fields that include the following in the Calculated Expression: "IFF"
> Please change IFF to IIF
- Run a validation for the Service Request BC
> There a couple of errors that needs to be verified. One of them is a join referencing the S_EMPLOYEE table which is inactive.

Exists a way to find in Siebel Sales records with case argument ?
For exemple : All the contact with the First Name in UPPER CASE ?
The Upper function is currently NOT supported in the Siebel GUI.
[First Name]=upper([First Name])
will result in the error message
The 'upper' function is not supported.(SBL-DAT-00411)
Please support "Upper" in queries from the GUI and in search specifications
was logged to request this enhancement
A suggested workaround of using FIRSTUPPER
for the Contact Field as documented in
Object Types Reference > Siebel Object Types > Field
may not be an option, as this fails make characters after a hyphen upper case
and hence cannot be used for names like
Add FirstUpperNonBlank functionality similar to FIRSTUPPER
was logged, asking for a functionality enhancement that would also make the first letter after special characters uppercase, resulting in
for the example above
Just to query, the upper functionality of the RDBMS can be used, for example
select ROW_ID, LAST_NAME, FST_NAME from S_CONTACT where upper(FST_NAME) = FST_NAME
