Error Connecting to iFolder

Recently upgraded iFolder running on OES SP2 Linux to v. 3.2.5347.1 We had
installed some clients at the same location that the server resides and
those worked fine pre and post upgrade. After the upgrade when we
installed the iFolder client on a new pc, we got the following error:

Server was unable to process request --> The request failed with the error
message:

Object Moved to <a
href='https://ifolder.domain.org/simias10/DomainService.asmx (etc.)

When we set up the iFolder client and add the simias10
(ifolder.domain.org/simias10) it connects just fine. My questions are:

1. Whey did this change after the upgrade?
2. Is there a setting that I can change to make it revert back to
connecting via ifolder.domain.org (with no /simias10)?

Re: Error Connecting to iFolder

OK, still not sure why things changed, but we found a workaround. If we enter https://ifolder.domain.org the client can connect properly. I know we didn't have to do this before the upgrade, so I'm still a bit confused as to what changed and why, but at least this may help someone else if they run across the same problem.

Ben,

I guess that I am a little confused about what you used to be entering
in as the server that was working that isn't after the upgrade.

Prior to the upgrade you just entered:

ifolder.domain.org (?)

And after the upgrade you now must enter:

https://ifolder.domain.org (?)

or

ifolder.domain.org/simias10

Is that right?

Just trying to understand.

Thanks,

Victor

Re: Error Connecting to iFolder

When we first installed ifolder, all we had to do was enter ifolder.domain.org We then upgraded the server (and clients). On the clients that we had installed initially, they just re-connected to the server after we upgraded them. On any new clients we tried to install, we had trouble getting them to connect to the server. We had success yesterday by entering the server as: ifolder.domain.org/simias10. Today that did not work and on a guess, we tried the https://ifolder.domain.org and the clients connected properly. Hope that makes it more clear for you.

Re: Error Connecting to iFolder

Ben,

Yeah, that makes it more clear thanks. I know that there were some
changes around the authentication mechanism in SP2 due to bugs like this
one:
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=127942

Additionally, some new features were added to the SP2 code like the
ability to use the email attribute as the username for iFolder which did
not exist in SP1. It is probable that in the process of fixing that
code, one side effect was that the client now requires the "https://"
that you have to enter now.

Thanks for your work in debugging this a bit more. Maybe it will help
someone searching the forum in the future.

Victor
