  1. Hi, I'm running MirrorSync v5 I have 20,000+ log files in folder SyncData4_MirrorSync/MyServerFolder. Can I delete older versions of those log files? Many thanks, ft.
  2. Hi, I have MirrorSync 5 running on a FM15 server. I'd like to upgrade to MirrorSync 6 on FM18 server I have about 15 syncing clients who are geographically-disparate and in different time zones. Is there any way I can migrate the server and let the users keep syncing through the process? Or do I need to coordinate the users to make a final sync on 15 server, then download a new version from 18 server? THanks, ft.
  3. So to clarify the process would be... 1. Create a new Log Table to track meta data of the syncs 2. Using the didSync section of the customization script ON EACH SPOKE to script a 'new record' in the Log Table and populate using the meta data fields/values mentioned above. 3. Sync Log Table to the server Do I have this correct? If so the data on the server will always be 1 sync behind, but I guess this is acceptable. Or is there a way to get the Log data directly into a table on the server? Thanks, ft.
  4. Hi, MIrrosync v5.0045, FileMaker Server 15.x. We have been getting a lot of the subject errors over the last few months on a couple of tables in our solution. We had been running for several years previously without such errors. It's quite possible I made a change that has caused this but I cannot work out what it is. The tables themselves are configured to 'RW from Hub and Spoke', 'merge fields' with the 'most recent change winning'. I would not have expected to get such errors with these settings. How can I track what is causing these
  5. Hi For reasons of accountability, Supervisors want to view a table of syncs undertaken by employees. What is the best way to record a log of each time each user syncs (preferably recording the version of the database they are using) so thit can be presented to Supervisors? Thanks, ft.
  6. Please can we have clarification from 30Works whether 2 MirrorSync configs can be created in the same solution as follows: Sync Config 1 - Bi-Directional sync, all tables Sync Config 2 - Upload-only sync (from Spoke to Hub) including only a subset of tables from Config 1. Thanks, ft
  7. Hi, We have approx 3.5GB in 3 files. The data changes quite a lot. My users go into the field with laptops, gather data and do a full, bi-directional sync. This sync works great, but can sometimes take considerable time depending on how much data has been changed/gathered on the server since the last sync. Is is possible to create a second sync option so that, in addition to 'Full Sync', the user would have an 'Upload Only' sync option. They could use the latter to quickly offload their gathered-data to the mothership. It looks like the section in the documentation called "
  8. 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.
  9. So is a 3rd party unzip app needed? Is there an app which will unzip the files and move them to FMGo? ft.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. That worked great, thank you. That is a fast & useful strategy to have on-hand. ft.
  13. 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.
