admin. The template files used for scripts that control the running and configuration of Siebel Server.

bin. Binary file directory, containing executables, scripts, and language subdirectories related to language-specific server components. Also contains files used by Siebel Technical Support for installation workarounds.


dbtempl. Contains dictionary and local database files required by Siebel Remote for regional users and Mobile Web Client users.

docking. Contains transaction files, visibility, and other databases required by Siebel Remote.

isstempl. Contains templates for Customer Order Management CDA application and engine files for newly created projects. Do not modify any files in the directories isstempl/lang/EngineSourceFiles or isstempl/lang/NewProjectDefault, unless directed to do so by Siebel Systems engineers.

IVSE.LIC. Merant ODBC Driver license file.

NOTE:  Monitoring of any SRF file by virus scanning software may significantly degrade Siebel Server 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.

output. Contains files related to Siebel Remote.

reports. Contains the report executable programs used by Siebel Proposals to include reports in proposals.

SDQConnector. Contains the DLLs, configuration files, and other files necessary to connect the Siebel Data Quality Universal Connector to one or more external data quality products. An external data quality product is certified though the Siebel Alliance program.
