The following notes discuss the release information for Alfresco Enterprise Edition 3.2 SP1


Please back up your database and content store before attempting to upgrade from a previous release.

For instructions on how to install Alfresco Enterprise 3.2 SP1, refer to the Alfresco Administering a Production Environment guide, available via the Alfresco Network.


This service pack requires the jTDS driver version 1.2.5 for compatibility with SQL Server, unlike version 3.2 Enterprise, which was certified with the Microsoft driver. We plan to certify future versions with jTDS.

Updated installation instructions are in the sample and on the Wiki

Known Issues

The following known issues are associated with this release:

Content Migration

v3.2.r introduced a new content storage model that allows orphaned content to be detected more efficiently. v3.2 SP1 migrates the content of existing installations to this new model to allow the problems reported in ALF-726 to be fixed. However, further testing recorded in ALF-2719 has revealed the possibility of data loss during migration of content to this new model.

If you have already installed this release and upgraded from a previous release, please run the following SQL in order to detect whether the problem has occurred.

  select * from alf_node_properties np 
  left join alf_content_data cd on ( = np.long_value)
  where np.actual_type_n = 21
  and is null

If any results are returned, it is important that you restore your backup of the content store and database and upgrade to Release 3.2 SP1.8 instead.

Email Templates

When there are existing email templates in Alfresco 3.1.1 and then an upgrade is performed  the templates are still present and in the same place as they were but can no longer be selected when specifying a template to use when creating a 'Send email to specified user' action in a rule.
This problem does not occur on a clean installation of Alfresco, only an upgrade one.

A fix ALF-1816 is provided for this in 3.3 Community release, but please 'cut' and 'paste all' actions to move all custom templates from their 'Email Templates' folder to either the 'Invite Email Templates' sub-folder (if they are templates for site invitations) or the 'Notify Email Templates' sub-folder (if they are templates for notifications of new content). The standard product ones will have been moved automatically.

now understand that this is configured with <edit-link-type> in web-client-config.xml.

Edit online via CIFS is not supported in Internet Explorer 7+/Firefox 3.x browsers

cifs link type no longer works due to heightened security in recent browser versions. We have removed cifs as a 'supported' value from web-client-config.xml and made following change,

                <edit-link-type>http</edit-link-type>, the value can be http or webdav.
