siebdev.exe  - Can I run this in batch mode?

Just so you are aware, I know nothing about siebel. However, in conjuction with a siebel developer who should know; we are trying to invoke siebdev.exe from a CIB server (jenkins specifically).

 

However, running the /batchimport option appears to launch a gui; which I'm fairly sure is causing the app to fail via the jenkins batch job on a windows server (we get an event log application fial)

 

Can anyone tell me iif it is posisble to run siebdev.exe silently? or at least so it doesnt fire up the gui?

 

Appreciate any help that you can offer.

 

Many thanks

    so, further to this

     

    I setup a windows schedule job, and that appears to run the job fine.

     

    However, this runs as my admin account rather than as the service (which doesnt have admin access rights to the machine).....

     

    Do I need admin rights to run this?

    yes

    Assuming this is for daily automated compiles or IRM imports etc. and you are trying to run in batch mode. Any recent version of windows (7.x,8.x,2008,2012) requires admin rights to run siebdev.exe. Windows UAC has been quite annoying in this aspect. A GUI will run in the user session even when run in batch mode. There is no true cli of siebdev.exe.
