iFolder NOT Preventing Synchronization of Excluded Files

Environment

Novell iFolder 3.8
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 3

Situation

Novell iFolder 3.8 was designed to allow the different filetype extensions to be excluded from iFolders.  This feature was added so that the iFolder administrator could prevent certain types of files from taking up iFolder server space, and is configured by the iFolder administrator in the /admin console provided by the server, under the System tab.
 
With OES2 SP3 excluded files are NOT prevented in iFolders, and the exclusion does NOT seem to be in effect.

Resolution

When adding exclusions to iFolder they MUST be added with an asterisk before the file-type being excluded (i.e. *.exe, *.mp3, etc.).  If the asterisk is included the exclusions take effect
