Web Browser Language Setting

An iManager plug-in might not operate properly if the highest priority Language setting for your Web browser is set to a language other than one of the supported languages. To avoid problems, in your Web browser’s Languages setting, set the first language preference in the list to a supported language, such as English.

Additional Information

For additional information, see the Novell iManager 2.7 Administration Guide.

3.7.3 Web Access Configuration File

Use the Web.config file to configure HTTP runtime parameters for your iFolder Web Access server. For information, see Section 14.4, Configuring the HTTP Runtime Parameters.

3.7.4 Installing iFolder Clients Through Novell ZENworks

When an iFolder client is installed on a machine for the first time, iFolder Account Creation wizard is displayed automatically. New users may not always know details such as server name and user name to create a new account. In order to avoid this problem with client users, you can provide these details to the users automatically in some form. You can provide this information in many ways, one of which is ZENworks.

Using ZENworks, you can install the iFolder client and push the configuration file containing the details of user account to be created. For more information, see Section 6.11, Using a Response File to Automatically Create iFolder Accounts.
