Novell Filr 1.0


Net Folder contents not being seen by users who have rights granted via group membership.

If rights to a specific file are granted through group membership then that group must be imported into filr for the rights to be determined.  Otherwise the file is not displayed.

For example, members of the group "Administrators" have full rights to the Windows Share.  UserA is a member of the Administrators group.  UserA  logs into Filr but is unable to see the contents of the Windows Share via the Net Folder.


There are two solutions.

Grant UserA specific rights to the share/file.
Include the Administrators group via the LDAP sync process.


Filr needs the group imported to properly determine file system rights grated via group membership.
