Users unable to view Net Folder due to faulty inheritance calculation

Novell Filr 1.0.1


If a user has the necessary rights to view folder (\\server\volume\folder1\folder1.1\folder1.1.1) but no rights on the parent folder (\\server\volume\folder1), the user is unable to view or access the contents of that folder via Filr. However, outside of Filr, such as when using the NCP Client, the user can view and access the contents of that folder without issue.


A patch is available to correct this problem for Novell Filr 1.0.1. Please contact Novell Technical Support with reference to this TID and request the patch.


In inheritance calculation, explicit rights set on a file/folder were ignored when there were no inherited rights from its parent folders in the hierarchy.

Additional Information

The fix is available in Filr 1.0.1 FTF-2 - Customer will first need to download and apply Filr 1.0.1 HP1.
