After you install the Novell Filr appliance and configure the network settings as described in Section 2.0, Installing the Filr Appliance and Configuring the Operating System, you are ready to configure the Filr appliance for the first time. This configuration process uses a quick wizard that gets your Filr system up and running. You can then make further configuration decisions, as described in Section 4.0, Configuring and Maintaining the Filr Appliance.
During initial configuration, you can configure Filr for a small or large organization. The configuration you choose depends on the number of users that access the system. You should have already chosen your type of deployment during installation. For more information, see Section 1.6, Recommended Hardware Configurations Based on System Performance.
In a small deployment, the Filr application, MySQL database, and search index all run within the same virtual appliance. In a large deployment, the Filr application, MySQL database, and search index run as separate virtual appliances.
