Hello all -
So I got a larger MirrorSync installation to run beautifully between two FMS15 server sites. Sync times are a charm.
My question is what the best practice is to make MirrorSync sync fastest. Currently, our hub server is in a colocation datacenter in Los Angeles with Gigabit connection.
The spoke server is in our branch office, syncing through a 100/50 Mbit connection.
MirrorSync server runs in the same datacenter as the hub server.
My question is whether it would make sense to install the mirror sync server at the branch office location instead. That way, mirror sync could connect locally to the spoke server at 1 Gbit, and only pull all changes from the hub server over the 100/50Mbit internet connection.
The way we have it now, mirror sync at the data center, it would only connect to the spoke server on the 50/100 Mbit connection.
Since I don't know how mirror sync handles data traffic to the hub and spoke server (or if there is any difference at all), I don't know which way is better.
Any advice would be appreciated!
Did any of you write a grok for logstash or find a way to analyse FileMaker Server logs using elk( elasticsearch / kibana? ) Not really picky on the version.
Good morning! I need some help getting something working.
We have a company website, and we are trying to create a instant web publishing portal for our customers to login and view their open invoices. Pretty simple. We have all of our information on a FileMaker solution that is hosted with FileMaker Server 12. The problem is we can't get it to work the way we want it to.
This is our idea and how we kind of want it to work. We want the have our customers create their accounts/passwords on our actual website. We will store their account information on our web server. We will authenticate their login on our web server. Then, after they log into our website, we want to take their username, bypass the filemaker instant web publishing login page, and then set their username (which they used to log into our website, not filemaker) to a global variable or a field or something, we just need it in filemaker so we can do searches on it. We have the instant web publishing layouts built and we can get all that part working fine, we have the login authentication working on our site, that part is fine. It's just bridging the two together.
We are using WordPress to build the website, and our site is hosted on GoDaddy. Our problem is that we can't find a way to auto-login and bypass the login web publishing page. We currently have one account called "WebLogin" which we have been trying to use as a general login (since the actual customer login is authenticated on our website, not FileMaker) but we can't seem to bypass the page. I found this page through google searching: http://lnx.acidsoft.net/problemsolved/bypass-filemaker-iwp-login-via-url.html
and tried to do it the way that he describes, but it is not working. It gives me an error saying:
The server could not process your request due to a missing command: ""
And I get another dialog box that says:
The server could not process your request because your session has timed out, been closed, or communication with the server has been lost.
Please reselect the database to begin a new session. If you cannot open the database, please contact your database administrator.
That is one of the problems, how can I resolve this?
My other problems is we are trying to pass through the username that the customer uses to login to our website as a variable in filemaker or even set it to a field. I am not sure how to do this. Is this even possible?
Thank you so much!
I have a script that works correctly on a server machine when running within FileMaker Pro 13, but raises errors when run within FileMaker Server 13. Both are running under Windows. The portion that is raising the error is an `Import Record` script step that imports from one table within a file into another table within the same file.
The error returned is 100, "File is missing," so I'm wondering if this is something not supported when running a script within FileMaker Server. If that's the case, I'm thinking that perhaps exporting the records to a temporary file and importing from that might be a workaround, but before I start down that road, I want to check and see if I'm missing something.
Have been fighting my way uphill in getting an SSL certificate, and I'm almost there. But now:
- I used the fmsadmin command to generate my server request, but when I copy the hash out of serverRequest.pem and send it up to GeoTrust, the import fails with the message country code is not valid.
Anybody know where to set the country code in FMS14?
