Novell Vibe 3.4


The site administrator (admin) user receives an error "Error: This URL name is not allowed." when he tries to define a simple URL for another user.

For example: For user 'jdoe' when the admin tries to define the following simple URL to his personal file folder, it fails:

Note: If the user 'jdoe' tries to define the same simple URL, it works.


A fix for this issue is available in the Vibe 3.4 Hot Patch 1, available via the Novell Patch Finder. With the fix in place, admin will be able to define the simple URL for other users.
