    SafetyNet S3 Question

    Hi Ryan, Thanks for your reply AND advice. We actually add an IAM user to our account for each client with just one single S3 policy that restricts their access to just get the content of their backup folder. They never login in AWS. We install and configure an app like Cloudberry Explorer, S3 Browser or Mountain Duck on one of their machines to access their backup files. The one flaw in this system is indeed that they see all the other customer's backup folders. But they have no access to them. So we might switch to one bucket for each customer. We were looking into your solution as it is far more elegant. But I can see that business logic demands that we use your Amazon account. Which raises another problem. We and our customers are based in the EU, so under the GDPR we cannot export/store customer data outside of the EU. Which AWS region do your S3 buckets reside in? Basically, what we are looking for is a system that gives our customers access to their backups, but at the same time allows us some sort of control for all of them, even if it was just to check if thing are running smoothly. Billing is contained in our subscription fee. We know the demands of our solution and the file size only varies with the number of user so we do account for that in the subscription. Luc Roels
  2. Hi, Context: We're hosting our solution through several FileMaker Server 17/AWS EC2 instances (one for each client). We have a S3 bucket "clients backup" with a folder for each client (clientA BU / clientB BU / ...) Question: Is it possible to direct SafetyNet to backup from one FileMaker Server to a specific folder (ClientB BU)? TIA, Luc Roels
  3. OK. Problem solved. Rather silly. A co-worker opened the files in FileMaker Pro for a last check on a machine where FM server was running. So sharing got turned off. Where earlier versions of FM server could be forced to share single-user files FM 7 server apparantly cannot. Anyway, opening the files in PM Pro with the scriptstep Set Multi-User (On) and then returning them to FM server solved the problem. Thanks for all the replies.

  6. Doug, Permissions are correct. Log says files opened. Stanley, Files are set to be visable. I did install this solution before in simular situantions without any problem. I'm stumped.

  9. Hi, Small network (4 Mac OS X + 1 PC Win XP) Files served through FileMaker server 7 (latest update) on Mac OS X 10.3.8, Permissions are correct. On client when chosing Open remote in the left pane I see the server's name and IP adress. No files appear in the right pane when I click on this server. As a test I served some files with a standard FileMaker 7 on a different computer and they show up fine on the other machines. Any ideas. TIA, Luc
