Novell Filr 1.2 Desktop Client
Novell Filr 1.1 Desktop Client


If a user's password has expired/changed, the Filr Desktop client notifies the user with an alert in the task bar area. This alert can be easily missed leaving the user guessing why the Desktop client is not connected.


A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 1.2 Hot Patch 1 / Filr 1.1 Hot Patch 3, available via the Novell Patch Finder. With the fix in place, when a user's password has expired/changed the Desktop client will pop-up the login dialog to enter the new password.
