The Siebel File System consists of a shared directory, which is network-accessible to the Siebel Server that contains the physical files used by Siebel clients. 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. See About File System Upload Transfer Process and About File System Download Transfer Process for further data transfer details.
Files stored in the Siebel File System are compressed at the Siebel Server-level and appended with the extension
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 Siebel Installation Guide for the operating system you are using.
The administrative tasks for cleaning up the Siebel File System and moving the Siebel File System are detailed in sections Cleaning Up the Siebel File System and Moving the Siebel File System respectively.
