Siebel 8 Upgrade - File System
We are about to go live with Siebel 8. For all of our testing we have copied the file system from one location to another (on small sized systems) and for UAT we copied a sub-set of the Production file system before performing an upgrade. However in Production we are simply upgrading the existing Siebel 7 file system.
The Siebel 8 server installation process asks for the file system location. Does this mean the installation is changing files in the file system? If so, are they changes that will still allow Siebel 7 to function?
The reason we ask is that we'd like to do the Siebel 8 software installation (not configuration) on the new servers before go-live weekend. If the Siebel 8 installation process makes changes to the file system that prevent it from being used in Siebel 7 then we'll have to postpone the installations until the weekend, reducing our time window.
