Failure to upload files due to Checksum errors

Novell Filr 1.1


In some instances, the MD5 Hash for files uploaded via the Desktop client may not get updated and result in a mismatch with the MD5 Hash for the file on the Filr server during the MD5 Checksum.

This may cause the following error in the Filr appserver.log file:

2015-03-16 14:17:40,403 ERROR [http-apr-8443-exec-10] [org.kablink.teaming.module.file.impl.FileModuleImpl] - Error verifying the file myfile.docx check sum for user [kablink,user1]. Expected: d9d89d74ef544c8ed5cdcad9d0af6f80; actual: 98ce8f0a7155ad79a0487d3aeb435524; size: 20992


A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 1.1 Hot Patch 2, available via the Novell Patch Finder. With the fix in place, when there is a Checksum error, the Filr Desktop client will re-calculate the MD5 Hash for the file in question and attempt the upload again.
