Managing Siebel Image Directories and Media Files
All products are installed from a Siebel image you create on the network using the Siebel Image Creator utility. Each Siebel release has its own version-specific network image, whether a base release or a patch release.
You will need to allocate space on the network for Siebel images that are to be used as the source location for Siebel installations. You should retain all network images until they no longer apply.
Also retain the Siebel media files—the compressed JAR files you obtain and use to create the Siebel image on the network.
