  1. Some progress, I have added the missing rewrite module, Reinstalled Mirror Sync, but it did not create the entry. I have manually tried to create the entry from your screen cap (thanks) but it still does not redirect. http://localhost/MirrorSync to http://localhost/:42424/MirrorSync I am more curious as to why the installer did not add the rewrite entry ...
  2. Thanks Ben, I have tried restarting IIS already (even rebooting) How an I verify the rewrite rule?
  3. This is simular (perhaps) but different from this thread: This is a stand alone AWS instance and does not have FMS running on it. I can use the local ip:42424/MirrorSync to access the console. Any suggestions? c
  4. I am having this same issue but my server is stand alone and does not have FMS installed (an AWS instance) Any Suggestions? Is application routing or something else needed?
  5. For future reference, I have added a blog regarding SSO Single Sign on and Filemaker webdirect here on my site. http://www.delfsengineering.ca/blog/2016/1/7/fm-single-sign-on
  6. This potentially an amazing idea. We can book the resources as needed so that a single user would be using said application at a time if the licensing allows it.
  7. Good Day, I have to tackle this same problem again this week actually ... providing SSO in a WD internal network. I think there can be two approaches (one of which I have done before): 1 - Use SSOSO (SinglesSign on - Sort Of ) by grabbing the persistantID of the client you can identify them returning much like a cookie. (can use cookies too but more work) then once a user logs in successfully you can save that terminals ID and use it to identify them on return. This will not lock them out if they change their password or their access gets revoked obviously. I currently use this with a public facing WebDirect site where users log in and later return. To the user it looks exactly like a typical PHP cookie system 2 - Access SSO via PHP or similar. This is a bit more complicated but I think can work (i have not done this yet) WebDirect Landing page opens and has a web viewer that accesses PHP page that checks creds via SSO back end and returns "access granted "or "denied" as well as the ID of the userscript on the WD home page checks the results of the viewer and depending roles in the user with the correct access privy or not.The PHP would have to be written to be compatible with your SSO systemLet me know your thoughts. And yes, the landing page of the Webdirect welcome page would be totally locked down.

    Unfortunately not, just a .dmp from several months ago. Nothing current related to this issue. CD

    Thanks Wim, The crash is more like a hang, - The event log shows the script that was running has been forced to abort, but it appears it does not. - CPU stays elevated as if something is happening, - Users are unable to log in and you cannot see any DB's in the open remote dialogue box. - FMS admin panel: Unable to disconnect servers or close any DB's To recover from the issue FMS must be stopped and restarted.

    Wim: - 6 Core CPU - Nothing 'looks' off stats wise - Verify Backup is disabled I have seen this with 2 different scripts, one script times out when it runs over time (as if it hangs) it is a simple looping counter that resets some values, and is stable on its own. The other script I have seen this happen on (when backup runs) has a large amount of logging and I can see that it is not doing anything odd or complicated when it crashes. In fact I can see slight variations in timing where it crashes. I had changed the schedule time so they do not overlap but that is not a solution. When it does hang I see a single core running at about 17% as if something got miessed and something is still running. Thanks for the reply! Charles This server has 16Gig Ram and currently 6G has been assigned for caching.
  11. Interesting case: - FMS 13 on windows Server 2008 - Occasionally (apparently near same time a back up runs (not progressive) FMS goes unresponsive, unable to open files, unable to access via XML CWP and WD also. - FMS is accessed via Clients, WebDirect and XML CWP at the same time. - Windows logs do not show any funky activity - I have seen It 'Appears' when a script is running (previously scheduled) and a backup run at the same time FMS hangs. Restarting fmsServer and AdminServer fixes the issue. Has anyone encountered an issue like this? Charles Delfs
  12. EasySync is transactional, Analyze the code and you can see how the records are created and committed in one transaction. Perhaps it would be wise to look deeper into why you have corrupted your data? You mentioned every after the initial syncs the time taking 3-5 minutes, I suspect that is because of the sync check routine (compares a list of ES_UUID's ) Try disabling it to see of that is the slowness, with large record sets it gets very costly. There are some alternate ways to track deletes if you are interested in modifying the source scripts. C
