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.
When using Siebel Developer Web Client for administrative tasks, you may want to connect directly to the Siebel File System without going through the File System Manager.
