MirrorSyncing Container Fields

3 posts in this topic

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?

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.

      Is it possible to sync data in a Filemaker portal to an external MySQL database? For example, an invoice listing multiple products stored in another table (assuming I only want the information in the portal, such as qty, name, price).
      Or do we have to manually sync all related tables behind the scenes and then re-create the relationships using joins later?
      Thank you!

      With MirrorSync 3 set to come out at DevCon, what is going to happen to people who have existing MirrorSync 2 licenses?
      We're about to buy a MirrorSync license. Do we need to wait for 3 to be released first in order to avoid an immediate upgrade two weeks later?

      Is it possible to use MirrorSinc with an App built with iOs Development Kit?
    • By Gianluca D'Aquino
      Hello there,
      I installed today mirror sync as a trial on a filemaker server to give it a try. After Installation and reboot of the server (basically it wasn't responding) I logged in on mirror sync and start creating a new configuration, but It gives me an error when I try to access to the database server.
      What am I missing?
