Novell Filr 2.0


On very large Filr systems (with more than 15+ million files) in various Net Folders and Home folders, an unbounded search query may cause the system to run out of memory and crash. In a specific test, a login from an Android client caused this condition and crashed the search server.


A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 2.0 Hot Patch 2, available via the Novell Patch Finder.
