A computer restart is required after upgrading from Dynamic File Services 2.1 to Dynamic File Services 2.2. During the upgrade, the product databases and configuration files are automatically updated to the new format, and your existing license key is automat ically registered. The restart is required to apply the settings.
A computer restart is not required if you uninstall the old product (making sure to keep the existing program data files), then install the new product. The retained databases and configuration files are updated to the new format during the reinstallation. However, your existing license key is not automatically registered. After the reinstallation, you must register a license key.
This section contains known issues in this release of Dynamic File Services.
A File Transfer Size Exceeded error can occur if a policy or manual move attempts to upload a file that exceeds the maximum file size allowed by your cloud provider.
The maximum size per file that can be uploaded to cloud storage is governed by the service level agreement with your cloud storage provider. The storage quota and file size limit is enforced by your provider. In addition, a file must be smaller than the remaining available space below your quota. For information, see
Maximum File Size for Uploads to Cloud Storage in the Dynamic File Services Administration Guide.
The Include/Exclude feature cannot be used on a retention pair that has a remote primary location. A blank screen is returned when you browse for folders to include or exclude.
This issue affects only retention pairs because only retention pairs can use remote primary locations.
The folder names for a given pair’s primary path and a secondary path must not begin with the same or similar sequence of characters if both paths are on the same device. When the initial sequence of characters is too similar, a fatal error occurs when you navigate the pair’s files with a file browser. This is not a problem if the paths are on different drives.
For example, assume that a pair on server1 has a primary path F:\bob, a secondary path F:\bobsecondary, and a network share \\server1\bob on the primary path. A fatal error occurs when Bob accesses the share \\server1\bob and attempts to navigate the files with Windows Explorer.
