Configuring the FTP Server for FTP Indexing
Siebel Search uses an Oracle Secure Enterprise Search XML framework for submitting records for indexing in the form of XML feeds. The pre-indexed XML feed files are stored on an FTP server for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search access. The FTP server and Siebel Server must be colocated on the same server—all examples in this guide assume that the FTP server and Siebel Server are colocated. Accessing the feeds over FTP is a crawl time operation requiring administrative privileges. The FTP location is not accessed at search time, therefore there is no end user access to the FTP location.
