I'm reaching the 125 database limit of filemaker server, so I need to deploy a second and was hoping I can do that on the same network and just change the default ports. But I must be missing something because I'm not able to bring up the admin console after installation. I think it has to do with a conflict on port 5003, but I'm not sure. (FYI the databases don't have to talk to each other - they are all silo'd)
My question is this - is there a way to run more than one filmmaker server deployment on the same network? If not, my only thought would be to create a virtual network with my router, but I don't want to go through the trouble if I don't have to. Any advice? Thanks in advance!
Any suggestions/limitations to hosting FMS 15 in a virtualized environment? Currently, we host a 30-40 user, 10 gig FM db on a physical server, however, p to v is being suggested by others in our organization (They're also inclined to config pooled versus static resource settings which would seem to affect the manner FMS functions)
Elaborating on specific VM configurations in a Windows environment would be greatly appreciated!
I'm unsure where exactly to post this so I'll try it here. If there's a better place please move this but it seems to be the correct category.
I'm looking to setup hosting for a 15 member team who will be primarily accessing the database via WebDirect. However, I'd like to connect the solution to MySQL and open up parts of the database to 50 other users via Custom Web Publishing (php).
I'd appreciate any feedback on hosting companies who can handle some or all of the following: licensing, WebDirect, Custom Web Publishing and ODBC. I looked into FileMaker Cloud but it doesn't seem to be able to handle CWP. Someone mentioned today that you can go with AWS apart from Cloud and I'd love to hear feedback on that as well. Anything you guys can share on good and less than desirable solutions would be most appreciated.
Feel free to recommend your own company or PM me and tell me why I'll like working with you.
trying to schedule my first system server script and I am getting an error:
Dec 2, 2016 9:35:00 AM Server Events Error 692 Schedule "fms backup to net vol" aborted; system script "fms_BackupScript.sh" returned non-zero status 12. Running mac OS Sierra
FMS is running with its default user account (fmserver [I guess])
The shell script file works fine when I double click it and has all execute privileges:
-rwxr-xr-x@ 2 admin staff 149 Dec 2 09:12 fms_BackupScript.sh Interesting, when I schedule this script with the admin username and password option, then I get an «Invalid account» error:
Dec 2, 2016 9:54:00 AM Server Events Error 732 Schedule "fms backup to net vol" aborted; invalid account name or password.
I'm puzzled. Where's the problem?
Thanks for any help!
