4.0 Vibe Desktop Issues

4.1 Team Workspaces within a User’s Home Workspace Are Synchronized Twice

If a user has a team workspace within his or her home workspace (the home workspace is called My Workspace), the files in the team workspace might be synchronized to the desktop twice. This happens when users select to synchronize My Workspace, and then under My Teams select the workspace that is a sub-workspace to the user’s home workspace. If Vibe Desktop is configured in this way, Vibe Desktop maintains two separate copies of the files in the workspace.

4.2 The Vibe Desktop Folder Cannot Be Configured to the Same Network Location on Multiple Computers

When selecting a location for the Vibe Desktop folder, you should not configure Vibe Desktop on multiple computers to use the same shared location on the network. This is because Vibe Desktop does not synchronize files properly if two instances are synchronizing to the same shared location, even if the instances are not running simultaneously. Because of this, it is best to always avoid configuring the Vibe Desktop folder to be on a network drive.

4.3 Vibe Desktop Does Not Work When the Vibe Server Is Configured with Windows Authentication

If your Vibe server is configured with Windows Authentication, Vibe Desktop cannot synchronize files on your Vibe site because of a port conflict.

For information about how to work around this issue, see Integrating Windows Authentication with Vibe Desktop and the Vibe Add-In in the Micro Focus Vibe 4.0.7 Administration Guide.

For more information about configuring Windows Authentication for your Vibe site, see Configuring Single Sign-On with Internet Information Services for Windows in the Vibe 4.0.7 Installation Guide.

4.4 Login Information for the Vibe Desktop Application Is Lost

If you are using Vibe Desktop in conjunction with the Vibe Add-in, login information for Vibe Desktop is lost if you configure your account information in the Vibe Add-in to use the system proxy configuration (by selecting Use system proxy configuration), then later configure the account to not use the system proxy configuration.

4.5 Installation Location Cannot Be a Folder That Includes Extended Characters

When installing Vibe Desktop, the folder where you choose to install the application cannot contain extended characters in the folder name.
