Novell Filr 2.0
Novell Filr Desktop client 2.0
macOS Sierra v10.12


The Filr Desktop client does not work when installed on the macOS Sierra v10.12. This is because the existing FUSE libraries are not supported in the macOS Sierra release.


A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 2.0 Hot Patch 3, available via the Novell Patch Finder. Included in this patch is an updated Desktop client for Mac (build 247) with updated FUSE libraries required by the macOS Sierra.

Additional Information

Users running OS-X El-Capitan v10.11 (or older) with Filr Desktop client 2.0 will need to reboot their system after installing the latest Desktop client (build 247). This is because the new FUSE libraries will not be loaded without a reboot.

Users running macOS Sierra v10.12 and installing the latest Desktop client (available as part of Filr 2.0 Hot Patch 3) for the first time will not need to reboot their system.
