I screwed up and deleted my own filr account. Options?

I have my appliance authenticating against my eDirectory environment.
LDAP synching does nothing.

I am still listed as an administrator, and when I log into Filr, I can see files and folders, but my home folder environment is missing, and I cannot add myself to the net folders for granting sharing rights.
Is there any way to force Filr to re-recognize my LDAP identity ?

So the account is deleted but you can still login with it? Sounds
odd. Maybe it didn't fully delete so the LDAP sync doesn't see any
changes. Are you syncing everyone in eDirectory or just those that
belong to a group? I recommend using a group. If you are doing that,
then assuming that you have another admin account that you can use
within Filr, I would remove your account from the group that syncs
with Filr. Then login to Filr with the Admin account and on the User
Settings tab tell it to delete the account and check the associated
workspaces and content. Then tell Filr to sync with LDAP. Once that
is completed and your account is gone from Filr, add yourself back to
the group and run the sync again to get it back in.

Aloha,Ketter
Sorry for the very late response.
To answer your question, I have Filr set to synch based on group membership.

At any rate, Filr re-synched my account and my home folder now appears properly.
I could always see my home folder when I looked at the Net folder list; it's just that I wasn't automatically sent to it when I logged in to Filr.
Now it sends me there, as expected.

My take-away is that if I don't actually delete my account in Filr, it will eventually 'self-heal' with regard to how it behaves on login.
