Filr 1.1 "get file link" no permission

Fresh Upgrade to Filr 1.1 large deployment, no clusters and only one of each VA. Did not yet upgrade SQL VA. VMware ESXi 5

Hello,
I get the following message when I try to get a file link with the new desktop client in Windows 7: "You do not have sufficient permissions to perform this action."

I get this error when I try it from our Filr site: "You do not have right to share your selection."

I even gave all internal users all the sharing rights. I did all the prescribed post update tasks, LDAP, re-index etc. Other sharing methods work fine.

Any ideas?

Re: Filr 1.1 "get file link" no permission

Is Guest access allowed under System > Web Application in administration console?

It wasn't, but it is now and it didn't seem to fix it.

Are you trying to share a file from a "NetFolder" or "HomeDir"?

Does it work from webui?

So you have allowed "Share File Link" under System->Share Settings and under your NF->Rights for this user?

Ah... You have to set it on all the net folders individually... I can share file link by putting a check by the file then selecting "Share" from the menu bar at the top, but not by clicking the drop down to the right of the file. I still can't "get link" from Filr library documents through desktop client.

And you did do "Granting Users the Ability to Share via a File Link" for all your users?

I just installed the Filr desktop client to try, for me it works..

Thanks a million! I don't know how I missed doing that, I used the documentation for the upgrade, it was also 11:30 at night and 2 am the next day. I now set all existing users to be able to "share link."

New users will automatically be able to share a link if it's set in system => share settings=> "group name"=> share using file link.

Web UI link creation works fine. I haven't tried the desktop client, sitting in a training session right now.

Re: Filr 1.1 "get file link" no permission

And how does one allow users to create file links from their Home Dir's?

We have allowed our users to share file links under System - Share Settings and allowed this from all our Net Folders.

Where is the setting to allow it from Home dir's? We still get the "you do not have the rights..."message when we try to generate a file link there.

On the netfolder where the homedirs are located.

Re: Filr 1.1 "get file link" no permission

We have no netfolder for the homedirs.

Our setup lets users access their homedirs from Filr from 'My Files' which has the personal store + Home folder based on their homedir setting in EDir.

Okay but if I remember correctly the volume is added automatically as a netfolder if there are users homedirectories located on that volume.

Just to be clear, you get this permissions error when you try to share a file from the homedir and not the personalstorage?

Re: Filr 1.1 "get file link" no permission

There's no Netfolder containing our homedirs.

We get the error both from the homedir (My Files - Home) and de personal store (directly under My Files)

System - Personal store only has the option to allow/disallow and set quota for groups, no share options.

The general system->share settings should govern what's allowed from
home directories. If you go to users, user properites of one of the
users getting the you do not have rights error, sharing, what do you
see for file link? Is it set to allow or clear?
