After you install the Novell Filr appliance and configure the network settings as described earlier, 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 Novell Filr 1.1 Administration Guide.
To configure the Filr appliance for a small deployment:
After you have installed the Novell Filr appliance, as described in Section 4.1, Installing the Filr Appliance, navigate to the following URL from a web browser:
Use the IP address or DNS name of the server that you specified during the appliance installation.
Log in to the appliance using the vaadmin user and the password that you set.
The Novell Filr Appliance landing page is displayed.
The Filr Server Configuration Wizard is displayed.
Select, then click .
On the Database page, create a password for the MySQL administrator.
If you need to change this password at a later time, you must use the native MySQL tools to do so.
In thefield, select the default locale for your Filr site. This is the language and locale that Filr uses when users first log in to the Filr site.
Some aspects of the Filr interface, such as group names and the login page, are always displayed in the default language, regardless of individual user settings. For more information, see Novell Filr 1.1 Administration Guide.
The default language that the Filr mobile app and the Filr desktop application are displayed in is defined by the language set on the mobile device and the user workstation where the application is running.
After the configuration is complete, a summary is displayed.
This configuration summary contains information such as network, database, and so forth. You can modify these configuration settings at any time from thecolumn on the left side of this page.
Continue with Section 8.0, Setting Up the Filr Site to make your site ready for user access.
