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?

      I'm am using BasicElements BE_ExecuteSystemCommand via PSOS to run different commands and commandline tools for different purposes (PDF and image handling etc.) - and it works perfectly.
      However some commands needs to be run from an Administrator account or even Domain Administrator account, but FMS uses the NT Authority/System account for running scripts.
      How do I get around this? Is there anyway to change which account FMS is using?

      Hi Gang, long time no see!
      Anyway, I am attempting to use Insert From Url to pull in some XML data and am having no luck with it.
      When I use a url such as "https://ipaddress/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-dbnames", I receive the expected result:
      <fmresultset version="1.0"><error code="0"/><product build="05/08/2015" name="FileMaker Web Publishing Engine" version=""/><datasource database="DBNAMES" date-format="" layout="" table="" time-format="" timestamp-format="" total-count="4"/><metadata><field-definition auto-enter="no" four-digit-year="no" global="no" max-repeat="1" name="DATABASE_NAME" not-empty="yes" numeric-only="no" result="text" time-of-day="no" type="normal"/></metadata><resultset count="4" fetch-size="4"><record mod-id="0" record-id="0"><field name="DATABASE_NAME"><data>FMServer_Sample</data></field></record><record mod-id="0" record-id="0"><field name="DATABASE_NAME"><data>LatestUpdates</data></field></record><record mod-id="0" record-id="0"><field name="DATABASE_NAME"><data>PSoS_Log_CWP</data></field></record><record mod-id="0" record-id="0"><field name="DATABASE_NAME"><data>TEST_XML</data></field></record></resultset></fmresultset> When I attempt to query the TEST_XML file, however, e.g., "https://ipaddress/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-db=TEST_XML&-layoutnames", nothing is returned. TEST_XML is a simple one-table (called TESTER) file with one field ("id"), one layout ("Testing") and a handful of records. It is set to auto-login as [Guest], which has the [Full Access] privilege and only the fmxml Extended Privilege.
      The server is running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard, SP1 and FM Server, with everything enabled in the Admin Console. I am using  Advanced 13.0v9 and Pro 13.0v9, though I receive an empty result in FireFox and IE also.
      Am I missing something obvious?

      Hi all,
      I am trying to write a script that let me display multiple fields of the same tables and create a button that run that script.
      for example a button to show the current address and another on to show the previous address, or some thing like that.
      I don't know if this idea is doable or not.
      Thanks in advance for your help and advice.

      "This is the first time I'm setting up a script to run on a server with the help of a schedule, so I will probably make a lot of strange mistakes, but how hard can it be? 
      Hard, obviously. :|"
      I have a script that check for new files in a folder, process them, export some data and move the files to a new destination. It works flawless with the Filemaker Client. 
      On the Server I can't get it to work! I'm using the BE_ListFilesInFolder step.
      The folder that I want to check is the following (the FMServer User have both read and write privileges on all mentioned folders): 
      This is outside the server Documents folder, so just to be sure I tried to change it to: 
      C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Documents\In\
      I get the same error on both. 
      I have tried to use a field as the path as well as hardcoded as well as variables in different combinations: 
      BE_ListFilesInFolder ( System::FMIn Folder ) 
      BE_ListFilesInFolder ( "C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Documents\In" ) 
      Set variable($folderpath) and then BE_ListFilesInFolder($folderpath)
      Same error. 
      I have tried a zillion different ways. With the Client it works. From the server it does not. I GET CRAZY!!!
      What have I missed?
      ...or should I just skip the Filemaker Server Schedule and do this with a client instead?
