By default, Vibe Desktop does not upload or download any file that exceeds 1 GB.
If a file size limit has already been set for uploading files to the Vibe site (as described in Section 22.6, Managing the File Upload Size Limit), whichever limit is more restrictive is honored by Vibe Desktop.
For example, if you set a file size limit in Vibe of 500 MB and the maximum file size limit for Vibe Desktop is set at 2 GB, users cannot upload files bigger than 500 MB to the Vibe site either by accessing the Vibe site directly or by uploading files through Vibe Desktop.
To restrict the size of files that are uploaded to the Vibe site outside of Vibe Desktop (such as by accessing Vibe through a browser, through the Vibe Add-in, or through WebDAV), as well as through Vibe Desktop (while keeping the default 1 GB file size limit for files that are downloaded through Vibe Desktop), use the Vibe administration console to modify this setting, as described in Section 22.6, Managing the File Upload Size Limit.
You can increase or decrease the file size limit for files that are both uploaded and downloaded to and from the Vibe site through Vibe Desktop.
Modifying the property as described in this section does not affect a user’s ability to upload documents to Vibe outside of Vibe Desktop (such as by accessing Vibe through a browser, through the Vibe Add-in, or through WebDAV).
Change to the following directory:
c:\Program Files\Novell\Teaming\apache-tomcat\ webapps\ssf\WEB-INF\classes\config
Make a backup copy of the ssf-ext.properties file, which is located in the same directory as the ssf.properties file.
Open the ssf.properties file in a text editor.
Search for the following line:
Open the ssf-ext.properties file in a text editor.
Copy the fsa.max.file.size= line from the ssf.properties file to the bottom of the ssf-ext.properties file.
Change the value of this property to the file size (in bytes) that represents the maximum file size that you want Vibe Desktop to upload to the Vibe site and download from the Vibe site. For example, if you want Vibe Desktop to be able to upload and download only 500 MB files, the line would read fsa.max.file.size=536870912.
Save and close the ssf-ext.properties file.
Close the ssf.properties file without saving it.
Stop and restart Vibe.
