  1. All my clients are reporting that they cannot download a new version of the datatabase. They keep getting the message as per the attachment. It says that the download URL may have been revoked. How can this be when it is being generated from within the Mirrorsync script? They can download from a link that I send by email. It should be the exact same link that the Mirrorsync script is using. Help needed please.
  2. Thanks Jesse. Actually, it was fishtech that posted that he had 'modificationDate', 'modificationAccountName' and 'modificationUserName' fields. I only have the modification timestamp filed. I have changed the mirrorsync configuration for conflict resolution. I now get an email when my users have a conflict. I am resolving it from my copy - which I know is good and in time all the conflicts will be resolved. There has been plenty conflicts so far. The puzzling part is that the records are being modified. Yet nothing has been changed in the records by any of the users. This is what I can't figure out.
  3. I need a bit of clarity on this. If I remove that field from the sunc layout, will it sync? The zz_account_create field is an important part of my scripts. If that field is not synced, I will not be able to do any remote trouble shooting.
  4. Hi Jesse, This file is set to most recent change wins. I do not want to leave this user user decides because that would cause huge problems. The records in this table are very rarely changed. In fact, in the past three years I am the only one that has changed anything and it was to maybe three records only. The modification timestamp on nearly all the records should be the same as the creation timestamp. The other thing I can't figure out is if 248 records were modified, why weren't the rest? The 248 records that were modified was done over a 3min 48 second period and this was done during the sync which took 15 minutes to perform. All the 248 records contain jpegs and this slowed the sync down dramatically. I never changed anything in these records and it was all done in the period that the sync was being performed. It is impossible to make changes to 248 in less than 4 minutes - except via a script. These are the auto create fields that I have on each sync table relating to creation and modification. The mod time stamp is the only field that updates when a record is modified. This is most baffling. Hi Jesse, I have attached my configuration file if it helps. PIMS v5 MirrorSync Configuration.txt
  5. This may not be related to MirrorSync but I have not been able to identify any other reason. MirrorSync will update records that have a changed modification timestamp. I have a table that over 800 records in it and when I performed a sync this afternoon it took for ever to complete. This is not the first time has happened and it is not just to this table. After checking the sync I found that 248 of the 818 records had been modified. The account name for the modification on all the records was mine. Now, there is absolutely no way that I modified any of these records. As I mentioned earlier, this is happening to several tables. I have tried to isolate this problem by running all the scripts I can and performing a sync between each one. The problem did not replicate. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?
  6. I have been having major problems after installing FMS 17 and the new MirrorSync. First, it said web server was not running. After hours of searching, I found that I needed to forward port 42424. Now I need to reconfigure the Mirrorsync configuration file. I have the IP's set as different and they are correct but MirrorSync is saying that the MirrorSync server at the IP address is not accessible on port 80. I had this same problem with FMS16 and I got around it by selecting port 8080. Now, we can't do that!!! How am I supposed to get MirrorSync running like this?
  7. I may have a solution to the missing MirrorSyncUpdater but, the problem is not completely resolved. I deleted Filemaker Go and downloaded a new version. I then downloaded the file from the URL and performed a sync. I then changed the version number in the server file and performed another sync on the iPad. The sync worked, it reported a new version was available and then it proceeded to download the new file. Everything appeared to be working but after a few tries, it failed. After the URL transfer was complete ( blue progress bar all the way across) the file hung. The progress bar disappeared and I had the option to "Continue" (on the right side) or, "Previous/next" (on the left side). Clicking these buttons did nothing. The little spinning wheel continued to go around but nothing was happening. I left it for maybe 10 minutes. It then opened the new file and asked me to put in my credentials. This may be the reason why I deleted it before - it appeared to be doing nothing. I did this twice and the same thing happened each time. If one of my clients was doing this he would become rather frustrated and end up doing all sorts of things. It may be an idea to include a message to say that the file should not be closed and to leave it alone to do its thing?? Warn the user that even though nothing "appears" to be happening, it is doing something. Tell the client not to click any of the blue buttons and not to close down FileMakerGo. In the previous version of FilemakerGo the MirrorSyncUpdater file was not showing on the device, nor the recent tab. I may have deleted it several days back without realising it. Jesse, you may need to include in your script a check to ensure MirrorSyncUpdater is installed on the iPad. If not - install it. I think it would be even safer to hide this file from the user so that he cannot inadvertently delete it. Another point of note. When the iPad had completed the download of the new version it opened the newly downloaded file. On the Mac using Filemaker Pro advanced, it closed the file off and I had to manually open up the new version from the Finder. This is a great feature and is better than the one I had developed. Mine worked but, it did not delete the old file and replace it with the new. I guess I could have done this if I had a bit more time up my sleeve.
  8. Hi Jesse and Ocean West, Have anyone found a resolution to this problem? I have the exact same issue.
  9. So when this happens I am stuck without any means of syncing? This happened to me on at the end of the week and with time differences between Australia and the US it means that I can't get a resolution until basically Tuesday the next week (today). I have just tried a sync and now I get another error saying that I can only have records in Filemaker Go or Pro if I have an exact copy of the file. I am assuming that is because I have added records over the weekend and I now can't sync them? I now need to delete all my files and reload them from the server? That is going to take ages and I will need a good stable internet connection. I am currently in a very poor service area and using mobile data. All my data will be gone in no time. I guess my only answer to this is to give you a link to my One Drive file, you load it up on your end and you test it out form please.
  10. Hi Jesse, I had MirrorSync working well on your server. I have signed up for a month at the moment. I made some major changes to my file and deleted the old one, installed a new and then I couldn't sync. The error that came up was that I didn't lacked privileges or the object was not found (screen shot attached). Tsiry this problem by restarting the MirrorSync Instance. I have again made changes, reloaded the file and edited the MirrorSync configuration file. The same error has come up. Tsiry replied to my report and stated that the problem could be solved in the same way but, she never gave me instructions on how I can restart the instance. How is this done from my end?

  11. Yes, can you please ask Tsiry to set up the file I gave you. She has my password but I can send it again if required. This file is a bit different to the one she set up for me before. I will send her a reply to her previous email as well. Thanks for your help. I sincerely hope we can get this going soon!!
  12. Hi Again Jesse, I am considering setting up my own server at home. How difficult is this? Can you give me an idea of what hardware and software I would need for this please.
  13. Hi Jesse, Yes, I need help. This is driving me crazy. I know your system works and it is the sync solution I want to work with. Tsiry has been helping me out a bit but I am still getting nowhere fast. Tsiry did test this out on your server but because I do not have an account, I could not download the database to properly test out the syncing. I am now considering buying a good computer, putting Filemaker server 16 on it, installing the MirrorSync client on that and then doing it all from my home. This is going tobe an expensive exercise and a very time consuming one as well. Not to mention that I will have to learn how to instal and run the server and the MirrorSync side of things. In hindsight, it may have been easier for me to learn how to make my own syncing solution. I don't know if the problem is the server or the way I have setup the database. Can you please have a good look at this and help out? This is the one drive link to my file: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ap_yV4dRFSjEgsV-rL0nEe9ag0nt8g I can send the password to you in a separate email if you want.
  14. I have been trying to set up MirrorSync with my database. I am fairly sure I have followed the instructions but when I try to up all my sync tables I get an erroras shown in the attachment. The are 24 tables in total. I have tried a shared server 14 in Sydney from FMPHosts for several weeks. I contacted MirrorSync and they think it may be the server speed. I and am now trying a dedicated server 16 also from FMPHosts and still getting the same errors. I have checked all the tables to ensure there is a creation timestamp, modification timestamp and created by field. There were a few tables that had a modified field and I thought this may be the problem. I removed those fields but it didn't fix the issue. Has anyone come across this before? Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong? Server error.tiff
  15. Interesting. It wouldn't let me in one day and then the next, all was good!!
