I am failing to sync container fields with MirrorSync

 

FileMaker Server 12.6

Mac Ox 10.9.1

Mirror Sync2_0082

 

There is no error message when MirrorSync2 finishing the sync process with an iPad. "Sync Complete"

 

Using the FileMaker Tasks sample, images entered on iPad do not show on networked file after syncing, same when images entered in the networked file do not who on the iPad.

 

Container fields show: <Missing: photo001.jpg size450.300>

FileName shows: remote: File Name

 

I have tried several configurations of the container field settings.

 

I tried (as per documentation) save a "self contained copy": even in this file are no images but <Missing: photo001.jpg size450.300>

 

Does anybody has an idea what would work?

 

Thanks

Detlef

Problem solved:

 

The problem was in the external data sources. Open that open (File -> Manage -> External Data Sources). Verify that the IP address and the filename point to the file on the server where the container data lives.
 
The source of the problem was changing the FMP file name.
 
Syncing containers works fine now.

Glad to hear it - that was going to be my first suggestion to check.
