Requirements for the Siebel Image Directories
This topic is part of Preparing to Create a Siebel Installation Image.
The directory in which you create a Siebel image, or the directory that you specify as the location for Siebel media files (JAR files), must meet the following requirements:
- The user creating the Siebel image must have write permission in the Siebel image directory.
Users who have to access the Siebel image directory in order to perform installations must have read and execute permissions. Users who have to modify files to support unattended installation mode must also have write permission.
See also the relevant topics in Planning Your Siebel Deployment.
- Any directory that you specify for creating a Siebel image must contain sufficient disk space for all of the Siebel modules and languages that you include in the Siebel image.
- When you specify the network image directory for adding modules or languages, you must specify the top-level directory containing the valid network image for the JAR files that you are using. For example, if you are adding languages to a version 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52 Siebel image, then the top-level directory that you specify, such as
C:\Siebel_Install_Image, must contain a subdirectory
184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11, which must contain an existing Siebel image for version 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124. Siebel Image Creator cannot add modules or languages to the network image, unless a valid top-level directory is specified.
- Any directory that you specify for creating a Siebel image must follow the conventions described in File and Directory Naming Conventions. For example, on Windows, a directory name must not contain spaces or number signs (pound or hash signs).
- Any directory that you specify for creating a Siebel image must have a drive letter assigned to it. Siebel Image Creator does not recognize mounted network drives (UNC paths) without a drive letter assigned to them.
- Do not copy or move any Siebel image subdirectories. Create each Siebel image and all of its directories by running Siebel Image Creator. It is acceptable to move or rename the top-level directory in which the Siebel image was created.
