THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • WAFS, version 4.0

SYMPTOM

After upgrading to WAFS v4.0, filters that were defined for jobs are lost and files that were supposed to be filtered are now replicated.

CAUSE/RESOLUTION

The location and format of the \Filter\ folder files is slightly different between versions. Immediately after installation, prior to the required reboot, the old files need to be copied/moved and modified to match the new format. This will keep any filtered file from replicating.

  1. Copy the contents (XML files) of the \AVCStuff\Filter directory to the new \Program Files\GlobalSCAPE\WAFS Agent\Filters directory. (The new directory may need to be created.)
  2. Modify the files as indicated below:
  3. Old:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UCS-2" ?>

    <filterData>

        <exclude filePattern="*.mp3"></exclude>

        <exclude folderPattern="test"></exclude>

    </filterData>

    New:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16" standalone="yes"?>

    <filterData>

      <exclude filePattern="*.mp3" />

        <exclude folderPattern="test” />

    </filterData>
