About Siebel File System and File System Manager

The Siebel File System consists of a shared directory that is accessible to all Siebel Servers in the Siebel Enterprise. It contains the physical files used by the Siebel clients and Siebel Servers. To gain access to files, Web clients connect to the appropriate Siebel Server to request file uploads or downloads. The Siebel Server then accesses the Siebel File System using the File System Manager (alias FSMSrvr) component. File System Manager processes these requests through interaction with the Siebel File System directory.

For information on administering the Siebel File System, see Administering the Siebel File System.

When using Siebel Mobile Web Client in connected mode (also known as the Dedicated Web Client), you may want to connect directly to the Siebel File System without going through the File System Manager. For examples of these cases, their potential ramifications, and for client setup instructions in each case, see Configuring the Browser for Siebel Web Clients.
