pc FMS 13 Slow External Auth?

2 posts in this topic

I recently installed FMS13, after uninstalling FMSA12 from my test server, and since doing that, I've noticed that there's a significantly longer delay that happens when authenticating with AD accounts than there used to be.  This happens whether using FMP clients or with Webdirect.  I see this ~5-10 second delay about 40-60% of the time when I connect to one of my databases employing AD authentication.  The same databases didn't have this when using FMSA12 on the test server, nor do they have this delay on our production FMSA12 server.  I'd like to know if anyone else is seeing this, and if there's a way around this prior to going live in production with FMS13.

I have heard no other reports about this.  A few things to check:


1.  Have you rebooted the database server after all of these changes?


2.  Is the database server still connected to the network exactly as it was before the change to Server 13?


3.  Are you noticing any other latency on the network when connecting to the Server 13 machine?


4.  Is the server clock showing the same time as the Active Directory domain controller's clock?

    • web server not passing test
      By Aussie John
      Hi I am installing a new OSX server and FMS. During the deployment I can't get past the web server test with error: Test web server ( Connection refused
      any thoughts - I turned off websites in the admin server. Funny I did this not so long ago and didn't run into this. Thanks in advance.
    • Admin Console Password incorrect (it's not)
      By Harry
      Hello Board!
      FMS 13. Hardware crashed. File closed incorrectly, listed as 'closed' on server console. I've opened the file locally with a version of Pro, done the checks and now have a file that works and can be opened locally.
      I log into FMS, using the console login and password, get access.
      Then i try uploading the file via FMP - it checks the file then asks me for the admin login and password for the Console. That fails as 'incorrect login/password.' But it's not incorrect. I've logged in to FMS Console with that password, changed it, tried it, been refused as incorrect, then logged back in/out of console with the new password to put it back to the original one which also fails!
      What is going on?

    • External Authentication Intermittently does not work.
      By mvoogt
      I'm having an issue with external authentication lately. I'm running FMS on OSX 10.9.4.
      Intermittently external authentication seems to not let users in to the database. The server doing the authenticating is sitting right next to the filemaker server. Both on the same network. When I go to System Pref. > Users & Groups on the filemaker server, the network account server is green and appears to be connected.
      I then do various things in FMS, turn the database server off/on, Go to Database Server > Security > Client Authentication and toggle the accounts dropdown from "FM and External" to "FM Accounts Only" and back again...THEN everyone seems to be able to get back in.
      Any idea what my issue is?
    • Uploading to Container very slow (not port 443 issue...)
      By jamesrockford
      I have a database on a Filemaker 13 server.
      Initially I was having trouble uploading to a container, as it started taking a VERY long time for small documents.  This was due to port 443 not being open.
      It is open for me now; however, I still get intermittent periods of slowness as if it isn't open.
      What seems to happen is when I go to the server, to check if things are still open - nothing seems to have changed, but when I go back - the file uploads much faster. 
      The power saving settings on the server are disabled, but I think this slowness has something to do with when it goes to sleep.  I'm not even sure what to look at or search for, it's so bizarre.
      Little Snitch reports that I'm accessing port 443 with no difficulty re: my filemaker connection.
