MirrorSyncing Container Fields

Recommended Posts

I am failing to sync container fields with MirrorSync

 

FileMaker Server 12.6

Mac Ox 10.9.1

Mirror Sync2_0082

 

There is no error message when MirrorSync2 finishing the sync process with an iPad. "Sync Complete"

 

Using the FileMaker Tasks sample, images entered on iPad do not show on networked file after syncing, same when images entered in the networked file do not who on the iPad.

 

Container fields show: <Missing: photo001.jpg size450.300>

FileName shows: remote: File Name

 

I have tried several configurations of the container field settings.

 

I tried (as per documentation) save a "self contained copy": even in this file are no images but <Missing: photo001.jpg size450.300>

 

Does anybody has an idea what would work?

 

Thanks

Detlef

Problem solved:

 

The problem was in the external data sources. Open that open (File -> Manage -> External Data Sources). Verify that the IP address and the filename point to the file on the server where the container data lives.
 
The source of the problem was changing the FMP file name.
 
Syncing containers works fine now.

      Hello,
      I noticed that on the server in which MirrorSync is installed, one of the mirrorsync.data files was 12GB+ in size. It is in the filepath formula C://Program Files/360WOrks/SyncData3_MirrorSync/FileMaker Server_x.x.x.x_FileName/mirrorsync.data

      Is there any way to either reduce the size of this file, or stop it getting any bigger? 
      Thank you in advance for you help

      Since going from version 2 to 3 of MirrorSync last year we have constantly had MirrorSync crashing the Web Publishing Engine. 
      Sometimes it says "Error from server: FileMaker XML WPE Web Publishing Engine is not running at <the hosted IP>. Ensure that the WPE is working correctly, and then try this operation again."
      But usually it is an Error 10 error. "Error 10 while connecting to http://<the hosted IP>/sync?ping=1&config..."
      Early on we made the documented suggested changes for this error, to the connectionTimeout Property in the IIS Manager application. With no noticeable effect.
      Most of the time MirrorSync works as expected and does a great job and then clients can't sync and all hell breaks loose.
      Do you have any other suggestions for what might be causing this issue?

      During the installation of MirrorSync I can not select the spoke database if I select the option to use a separate mobile file.
      I get an error message thta MirrorSync can not get the database names (image mirrosync2). However database names are available when I select the hub database (image mirrosync1). When I select the option sync with an emtpy clone or complete copy of the main file I can continue the installtion process.
      Any idea why Mirrosync can not find db names for the spoke database?

      Hello,
      I am getting an error while sync,
      "Last sync failed: com.prosc.sync.AbortException: Failure while recording changes from FileMaker Server 192.168.8.150/sync_Information: java.sql.SQLException: IO error: position 13016373"
      Is it possible to skip this one particular table in MirrorSync sync to test the other tables?

      If I wanted to script a mobile device update process, is it possible to directly access the download link and not have to go through the intermediate trigger page?.
      I would like to grab a copy of the hosted file and insert it into a container.
      Currently hitting the download link returns the "Download file is ready and should automatically start downloading now." Then later a JS forced download.
