You have a Content Server 10gR3 instance using the upgraded FileStoreProvider component with a custom "Webless" storage rule. After you check-in a file to that storage rule and attempt to retrieve its  webviewable rendition via a search result or Content Information page hyperlink, the following exception is thrown in the Content Server user interface:

Content Server Request Failed
Unable to retrieve file. Unable to execute service method 'createWebFileNameFromRelativeUrl'.
(System Error: m_file)

This exception can happen after the out-of-box FileStoreProvider is upgraded via the Content Server Component Manager or Component Wizard.
