Set Up Directory Structure
Engine Mobile and Geodatabase Replication require a specific directory structure that allows Engine Mobile packets to be transferred between the field and enterprise. Before starting your configuration for Engine Mobile or Geodatabase Replication, create the directories as indicated below. This ensures you have the directories needed for storing the necessary databases created in the configuration process.
If you're setting up multiple field machines, the directory structure must be the same on all of them. You can create the structure on one administrator machine, then disseminate the same information to all field machines.
Machine 1: Enterprise - This machine has ArcFM/Designer installed. It may also host the Geodatabase Replication server.
Machine 2: Administrator - This machine has ArcFM/Designer installed and the exact same directory structure as all field machines. Use the configuration files and directory structures on this machine to deploy to all field machines.
Machines 3-x: Field - These are the machines used in the field and will have only ArcFM Viewer or ArcFM Viewer for ArcGIS Engine and any necessary Engine Mobile extensions (e.g., Inspector, Redliner).
