After upgrading to Filr 1.1, you should perform the following tasks to ensure a fully functional Filr system:
After upgrading to Filr 1.1, you need to designate the server type (Windows, OES, or NetWare) and authentication type (NMAS, Kerberos, NTLM) for each Net Folder Server in your system. You then need to restart the FAMT service.
Set the server type and authentication type for each Net Folder Server in the Filr system by reconfiguring the Net Folder Servers.
On a new Filr 1.1 large clustered installation (multiple Filr appliances), Memcached runs on the Lucene search index appliance. When upgrading to Filr 1.1, it is recommended that you move Memcached from the Filr appliance to the Lucene search index appliance, as described in Section E.0, Moving the Memcached Service to the Search Index Appliance.
Memcached is used only in large clustered deployments (when the Filr system includes multiple Filr appliances).
Because of changes made to the search index since the previous release, you should re-index your Filr site.
New in Filr 1.1 is the ability for users to distribute a link (URL) to a file. When users distribute a link to a file, any user with the link can access the file. However, the file is not displayed in the Public area, so users must have direct access to the link in order to access the file. (For more information, see Novell Filr 1.1 Web Application User Guide.)
Users that existed in the Filr system prior to upgrading to Filr 1.1 do not have the ability to share via a File Link by default. Users that are added to the Filr system after upgrading to Filr 1.1 already have the ability to share via a File Link.
To enable existing users to share via a File Link after upgrading to Filr 1.1:
Log in to the Filr site as the Filr administrator.
For example, https://filr_hostname:8443
