    Modified Timestamp Changing

    This is interesting. All my sync layouts have a modification timestamp. But each layout also has 'modificationDate', 'modificationAccountName' and 'modificationUserName'. Is this bad practice? I assumed I would need those fields to track who/when fields were modified. thanks, ft.

    Downloading files to iPad / iOS

    So is a 3rd party unzip app needed? Is there an app which will unzip the files and move them to FMGo? ft.
  3. Hi, We've been using mirrorsync successfully for a couple year on MacOS laptops. The solution is just over 3Gb in size and has 3 related files, and about 18 syncing users. I'm trying to bring an iPad in for the first time (FileMaker Go 17, iOS 12.1.1) and having some problems downloading and expanding the files. Is there a step-by-step available? When I click on the link in Safari on iOS a 500Mb zip file called "FMServerDownload.zip" is downloaded . There is a blue link "Open In FileMaker Go", under the filename. But when I click on it it just moves the FMSerevrDownload.zip file to Other Documents in FileMaker Go. When I tap the .zip within FMGo it shows 'LOADING' for a while, then shows and icon "FMServerDownload 535.7 MB 3 files" with a button to "Preview Content". When clicking "Preview Content" the names of the 3 files within the archive are listed. I cannot open the files with FM Go. How do I open that zip downloaded from mirrorsync server and have the files recognized by FileMaker Go Do I need to take the zip to File app first? Thanks, ft.
  4. HI, I am about to upgrade from MirrorSync 4.0079 (revision 13206) to MirrorSyncv5. I'm running on MacOS FMServer 15 and the MIrrorSync database is on an external SSD. From the documentation this MirrorSync upgrade looks like a very straightforward process which will not affect my users. Just looking to double-check that there is nothing special to look out for before/after running the update to MirroorSync v5. Many thanks, ft.
  5. That worked great, thank you. That is a fast & useful strategy to have on-hand. ft.
  6. HI, Sync has been working well for months. But... an external contractor has done something to modify 800,000+ records. Unfortunately that change is being pushed to 20-or-so remote clients and causing MirrorSync to collapse under the weight. I can have the remote users simply download a new copy of the database, but many of them have data to upload first. Is there any way I can have the server gather the data from the remote clients only without trying to push down the 800K+ records down to them? Thanks, ft.

    Sync with NetSuite?

    Hi, We'e considering a NetSuite installation. Can Mirrorsync sync Netsuite's data with FileMaker Server? NetSuite is built on Oracle, but I have no hands-on experience with it yet. The architecture need to allow for using NetSuite's customer data in a FileMaker-based app on remote clients as follows: NetSuite <-> FileMaker Server <-> Various remote FM clients. Thanks, ft.
  10. Some of the users are using an earlier download of the database without 'Database Version' field. But they are getting the 'upgrade available' message and then a fail. It's confusing the users. Is there any way just to turn this off on the server? ft.
  11. Any news please? How do I disable this feature until there is a fix? Thanks, ft.

  13. Hi, I just activated the auto-update notification feature in MirrorSync 4. My users are on Macbooks with FM16. 2 users have reported they see the following error: " <thefile.fmp12> could not be created on this disk. Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk" I have not had a chance to remote to anyone to check it out yet, but received these reports via email. They do have plenty of disk space. Please advise. Thanks, ft.
