Novell iFolder 3.7
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2)


The 'Sync Log' for the Novell iFolder 3.7 client displays files for file types specifically excluded by the iFolder administrator when the iFolder client synchronizes with the server.  This causes the illusion on the part of the end user that files are failing to synchronize, when in fact, files that are supposed to synchronize with iFolder are being handled properly, and excluded files are ignored. 


A patch has been released through the patch channel that adds a switch to disable the logging of restricted files in the sync log.  The patch needs to be installed to the server, which will update the client software on the server-side.  The updated client will then need to be installed on the workstation.
