Verifying the Siebel Client Directory Structure

The Siebel client installer creates directories on each Siebel client. Use Windows Explorer to verify the directory structure on your computer. Following are an example of the directory structure of a typical Siebel client installation and descriptions of individual directories.

  • SIEBEL_CLIENT_ROOT. The directory for the Siebel client installation, such as C:\Program Files\Siebel\7.8\Web Client (the default). This installation directory contains the directories identified in the following section. You can change the name during the installation process. For more information, see Directory Naming Conventions.
  • actuate. Contains all the Actuate-related files, for Siebel Reports.
  • bin. Contains all binary files (*.exe, *.dll, and so on), configuration files (*.cfg), user preference files, and language-specific files.
  • charts. Contains files for generating charts.
  • fonts. Contains font files.
  • isstempl. Contains templates for the Customer Order Management CDA application and engine files for newly created projects.
  • jar. Contains JAR files (these are not used with Microsoft Internet Explorer).
  • lex. Contains dictionary files used by the spelling checker.
  • local. Where the local database is stored.
  • locale. Stores language-specific files.
  • log. Stores the log files from client operations, such as synchronization.
  • msgtempl. Stores message files used by the client.
  • objects. Contains compiled Siebel repository (SRF) files and language-specific files.

    NOTE:  Monitoring of any SRF file by virus scanning software may significantly degrade Siebel Mobile Web Client or Developer Web Client performance. If you have virus scanning software installed on your computers, you should configure it to skip SRF files. Because these files are binary data files, the risk of virus infection is low, and so excluding these files from scanning should be acceptable. Alternatively, you may choose to scan SRF files, but less frequently than other files.

  • packager. Stores files used by the Siebel Packager utility.
  • public. Contains HTML, ActiveX, Java, and JavaScript files, and image files used by the client.
  • reports. Contains all report files.
  • sample. Where the Sample Database is installed.
  • sqltemp. Contains SQL scripts. These files should not be modified.
  • temp. Contains working report files.
  • upgrade. Will contain Siebel Anywhere upgrade files retrieved by the user.
  • webtempl. Contains Siebel application Web templates.
