FM Server 2011 Admin Console Password Recovery

5 posts in this topic

I need to make recovery of the Admin Console Password properly FileMaker Server2011. I assumed management of this server and I would like to avoid deleting the 4configuration file to reset your password. Unfortunately, those who first ran the serverdid not leave the data access.

thanks

There really is no "recovery" feature. Close files using terminal CLI, and then delete the configuration files. Call up the console and reconfigure.

Steven,

 

Can you elaborate on that process? We recently changed the Admin Console password for our FMS 10 and today, following a power outage which our battery backup was unable to handle, I am unable to login using either the new or previous password.

 

Thank you,

 

Steve

      Hi, I've purchased a CloudMail license. I'm going to use it in an environment with 1 FileMaker Server v14 and 12 FileMaker Pro v14 clients.
      The database is already on the server, and the plugin is activated, but I'm not able to use CloudMail functions with a client that doesn't have the plugin installed.
      How can I register the license and use the database from a client?
      Thanks

      Hello there,
      I'm just investigating on 2 issue I have on sync 2 DB, 1 on the server and 1 on the iPad that are set to use a Spoke Db in the middle tier.
      Basically the sync is set to copy ALL the data from some tables on the server to the local db and send some data from the local db to the end server db. For some reason, on a large table, called Articles, with more than 130k records, the sync does not copy all the record for some users. There is no 'filter' based on user on the end db, and I run a pre-populate sync on the spoke db that copied all 130k records. When the sync is run for that specific user, the final result on the iPad is that the sync DELETES 12k records for no apparent reason.
       
      In addition, there is a Global table that has always 1 records and is get from the server to the client. But I found some times that there are several records on that table (more than 10) on the server, even if the sync is set to write on the spoke and not viceversa for that table. I have the suspect that are written from the sync. Is it possible?
      Thanks in advance,
      Gianluca

      Hi,
      I have MirrorSync(2.6) configuration with FileMaker Server to FileMaker Server Configuration.
      I Stop the synchronisation, I stop FileMaker server spoke , I transfer on the new one...  
      I have to change the ip configuration on the Spoke Server but MirrorSync ask me to install with a clean DataBase .... But it's impossible because we have a lot of Container Field ... and it will take to much time... 
      What can i do to not have this problem.

      One of the database was corrupted. So we have created clone of that database and performed recovery. We have imported records from this recovered file into new clone file.
      This database is connected(relationship) to other database.e.g there are two database Department & employee database.These two table are created via DEPT_ID.I performed recovery on employee database.
       
      Department Employee DEPT_ID EMP_ID DEPT_NAME DEPT_ID   EMP_NAME Now When I create new employee for XYZ department.It is assigned to the another department.
      How to solve this ?
       
      I checked the recovery logs and did not find any errors but found this line
