1.0 Introduction

Since the introduction of Novell Filr in April 2013, we’ve learned certain situations make deploying and enabling Filr challenging. Most enterprise networks are not optimally designed for you to simply deploy the product. In most cases, you will need to perform a variety of prerequisite tasks including identifying and moving irrelevant files, creating directories, adjusting access rights and more. Fortunately, Novell has its own enterprise file reporting and file management products that can greatly simplify these prerequisite tasks.

This document discusses some best practices for Filr deployments using File Reporter and Storage Manager.
