  1. Got this kind of message twice this week. Not sure what it means and how to fix it. where XXX is an uuid with some user token
  2. Renaming devices ?

    That would be a really nice new feature . Thanks
  3. Is that possible to rename the device (the name that appears in the licenses list) without having to do an initial sync ? If I change the field clientname of the mirrorsync table, will it change the name in the mirrorsync config utility ? I'm asking because I always used the default naming but now I see that some devices end up having the same name and it's quite confusing when I have to delete a particular device. I would like to change it for the account name that is used to connect to the database. Possible or not ?
  4. I actually would remove the fields on the sync layouts only on the device version of the database . Should take 5-10 minutes of additional work each time I prepare a new offline version. I will test some initial syncs it to see if it's worth the hassle.
  5. I noticed that writing data is a bit faster when the layout has nothing on it. No object or field. Can we remove the fields from the sync layout on the device (iphone, ipad)? (I understand that the fields must be on the sync layouts on the server) Just a crazy idea I had this morning
  6. I may be tempted to test the Development license of fms 16. Limitations Does this apply to Mirrorsync ?
  7. I'm curious about this new feature. What I particularly want to know if the process requires an initial sync after the download of the new version .
  8. Sync Check Speed Improvement - Part 2

    How's the speed of EasySync compared to Mirrorsync ? We like Mirrorsync but we had troubles recently and the fact that it's an external app makes it harder to debug . We're looking at other products while we're waiting for a fix.
  9. 2 problems that may be related 1.Starting a few days ago I sometimes get an error message (Unexpected response from Mirrorsync server) . It seems to happen when I haven't synced in a few hours. When I retry 2 seconds after the error message it works just fine....apparently anyway. 2.We got a wrong deletion of a record that was just inserted in the same sync. In the log there was this line WARNING: Deletion scanning mismatch in NodeReference for hub node FileMaker Server ... with associated spoke node Client node .. on iPhone Go ... Deleted record count (1) - extra count (0) does not equal expected missing recount count (0). This will probably lead to false deletion scans on every sync after this. Not sure what that means and what is the cause of this problem but I must say that it's scary. I already sent the log to 360works but I'm trying my luck here as maybe someone already had this problem and knows the fix.
  10. Perfect. Thanks for the detailed answer.
  11. Thanks for the reply Jesse. What about containers ? From the documentation Should I convert my container fields into base64 text fields to avoid that ?
  12. We are currently using MS with FMS 14 ( concurrent connections license). The new licensing (which I really hate) of FMS 15 and 16 use the notion of "users" instead of concurrent connections. How does MirrorSync work with that system ? If I have 50 different users who sync their offline database , do I really need to buy 50 FLT licenses (knowing that those users will not connect directly to the server and only use MS to sync) ?
  13. Thanks for this. Got this error message this morning too. I removed the newly added table from the config and it solved the problem. It appears fmphost does not have this 2.6009 version (the version is 2.6) We really need to upgrade to v3 !
  14. Post-Sync Hub Actions

    Thanks. We will update in the next few weeks. Meanwhile I will work on an alternative way to get what I want by adding a new synced table.
  15. Post-Sync Hub Actions

    What I'm trying to do is to update some field with the result of a calculation. This update must be the last action since the calculation depends on related records that may have been updated, deleted or added inside the same sync. Of course I could achieve what I want by launching 2 consecutive syncs like this 1.Sync 2.Update records on the device (any field just to force an update on the hub) that I want to get new calculated results from the server 3.Sync again (in the A RECORD WAS UPDATED ON THE HUB section..I would add the calculated update) I guess that would work but it would be pretty inefficient.
