  1. After upgrading to FM Server 16, I am seeing that the automatic daily script executed from the server side is no longer doing so without error. The script sends email reminders to workshop presenters scheduled within 4 days. The error code, which I record in a log, is 119. However, that code isn't listed among the error codes listed in the online help: https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/help/16/fmp/en/#page/FMP_Help%2Ferror-codes.html%23 Knowing the meaning of the error may provide useful information that will help me reconfigure the email account settings for the command Send Via SMTP Server. Thanks.
  2. I'm considering upgrading my FM servers to v15, mostly for the Top Call Statistics, but also the WebDirect features. To save me some time and effort, has anyone used the Top Call Statistics in a meaningly way and can give a honest review of it? Is it really helpful in any way, and if so, how? Or is it another feature that looks great on the onset, but not very helpful once you start using it?
  3. I can't access or download PDF's in a container field when the solution is hosted via Webdirect. Is this problem fixed in FMS15? Thanks for your help - it's much appreciated.
  4. Have external authentication set up for FM server 15 with several databases. When a user logins in with WebDirect it shows all the databases and a user may click a database and have access. In FM Go 15 or Filemaker Pro, a user logs in and then see the databases they have access too, but upon clicking on a database they are promoted for their user name and password again. Is there a way to make it so once a user logs in with FM Go and FM pro that they do not have to login a second time?
  5. I'm getting resistance from a client's IT vendor to opening ports 16000 and 16001 so that I can administer the client's server without having to remote access in using GoToMyPC. The IT vendor is concerned that FileMaker Server uses Java. I thought I remembered hearing that this was not the case beginning with 13, but I see that Java is still listed as a requirement. So my question is two-fold: Does Server 13/14 still need Java and use it as the interface into the Admin Console? If so, and the most recent version of Java is installed, is this still a security issue?
  6. Dear all, I'm new here so forgive me if not posted in the correct location. We have the following situation for which we do not know how to continue: We have Filemaker server running on a windows server. The server is accessed through its local ip address (in the 10.10.10.x block). For an internal application I would like to extract information from a FileMaker database for usage in another application. Initially, I used the xmlresultset grammar. It works for when requesting the databases hosted on the server (i.e. : http//10.10.10.x/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-dbnames returns the expected result). However, when I attempt to retrieve a list of layouts that are available I keep getting an empty body result: http://10.10.10.x/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-db=Test&-layoutnames Returns the following contents (Note the content-length = 0): [Chrome section: General] Request URL: http://10.10.10.x/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-db=Test&-layoutnames Request Method: GET Status Code: 200 OK Remote Address: 10.10.10.x:80 Referrer Policy: no-referrer-when-downgrade [Chrome section: Response header] Content-Length: 0 Content-Type: text/xml;charset=UTF-8 Date: Mon, 19 Nov 2018 16:01:06 GMT Server: Microsoft-IIS/10.0 X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN X-Powered-By: ARR/3.0 X-XSS-Protection: 1; mode=block [Chrome section: Request headers] Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,image/apng,*/*;q=0.8 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.9,nl;q=0.8 Authorization: Basic XXXXXXXXXXXXX Cache-Control: max-age=0 Connection: keep-alive Cookie: JSESSIONID=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.jwpc1 DNT: 1 Host: 10.10.10.x Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1 User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/70.0.3538.77 Safari/537.36 I specifically made a layout that should return content as a table view of the records. I have verified with PHP, and it shows the same problem. I have read on some forum that layouts should be made available through web-publishing as well. How to do this? I cannot find it in the documentation. What else am I missing? Hoping for an answer!
  7. Hello, We recently upgraded from FMS 14 to FMS16 and one of our databases won't open via WebDirect due to the way it's named: the database title has an ampersand ("&") in it. This worked just fine for FMS14, but not for FMS16. The easiest solution seems to be to change the database title. I'm a little hesitant to jump into this because of a large number of externally held containers. How would one safely go about changing the database name (I'd like to change the "&" to "and") without losing the linked containers? In case anyone's wondering, I didn't name the database; I inherited it.
  8. "This is the first time I'm setting up a script to run on a server with the help of a schedule, so I will probably make a lot of strange mistakes, but how hard can it be? Hard, obviously. :|" I have a script that check for new files in a folder, process them, export some data and move the files to a new destination. It works flawless with the Filemaker Client. On the Server I can't get it to work! I'm using the BE_ListFilesInFolder step. The folder that I want to check is the following (the FMServer User have both read and write privileges on all mentioned folders): C:\FTP\FM\In\ This is outside the server Documents folder, so just to be sure I tried to change it to: C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Documents\In\ I get the same error on both. I have tried to use a field as the path as well as hardcoded as well as variables in different combinations: BE_ListFilesInFolder ( System::FMIn Folder ) BE_ListFilesInFolder ( "C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Documents\In" ) Set variable($folderpath) and then BE_ListFilesInFolder($folderpath) Same error. I have tried a zillion different ways. With the Client it works. From the server it does not. I GET CRAZY!!! What have I missed? ...or should I just skip the Filemaker Server Schedule and do this with a client instead? Tia, /Andreas [Windows 2012 r2, FM Server v15.0.1.137]
  9. Hi, I have fm 14 server running on a mac mini. I have recently upgraded to FM16 running Mojave on 2 x local macs. We started with one license, where only one of us could use FM at a time (as we knew), I have since bought another copy and and reinstalled FM16 on the local mac with the new serial number but the server still seems to think we are using the same copy?? and we are getting the attached error. I have completely uninstalled FM locally but still does not work. I have asked my FM guy, as well as 2 or 3 other people but everyone seems to be stumped?? Is there any way of clearer the cache which may be holding this old information? Any help would be much appreciated.
  10. I have installed FMS16 and FMPA16 locally on my Mac Pro (running El Cap) for testing purposes. The admin console doesn't seem to be showing the correct information. It is always listing connections that are no longer present, even after having restarted the server via command line, removing the file, etc. After uploading a new file to the server, the new file doesn't appear in the admin console, but can be listed via command line. Access also works by web direct, etc. Anyone else having issues with the admin console on FMS16? What did you do about it? My computer just got all the latest available system updates last Friday, so that shouldn't be the problem. Thanks!
  11. Hi, I'm am using BasicElements BE_ExecuteSystemCommand via PSOS to run different commands and commandline tools for different purposes (PDF and image handling etc.) - and it works perfectly. However some commands needs to be run from an Administrator account or even Domain Administrator account, but FMS uses the NT Authority/System account for running scripts. How do I get around this? Is there anyway to change which account FMS is using?
  12. Hello all. I am running the FMS 14 backup scripts to a custom folder on the same disk as the Filemaker install. There are a number of errors generated. Schedule window Status says "permission denied" Main Status window say "Schedule "Daily" aborted; the destination "filemac:/server HD/fmsbak/" is not writable." Folders ARE created the backup databases but some files are corrupted (although others not) The backup folders do not delete after the schedule number of backups. And only recently I can't change the folder path as nothing happens if I validate or save and to log out I have to revert. Any help with this would be terrific. Thanks
  13. My production Filemaker Server 14 running on Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (Not Mac OS X Server) has been running fine for a year since I last installed the Thawte SSL Certificate. After renewing the certifate this year, I've tried various different methods of importing the new certificate, which came with an intermediate certificate, but I can't seem to get the intermediate certificate installed. I've been mostly using something like: sudo fmsadmin certificate import --keyfile /Users/richardfincher/Desktop/GBROOMX36-4X/private.key /Users/richardfincher//Desktop/GBROOMX36-4X/ssl_certificate.crt I've also tried importing it through the web control panel. It was necessary to remove the old private key thus.: sudo rm /Library/FileMaker\ Server/CStore/serverKey.pem After it is (apparently) installed, I usually restart with : sudo fmsadmin restart adminserver although a few times I have rebooted the server (not a VM) Any thoughts welcome.... Oh, one thing is, a year ago it might have been still on Mac OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion, which was the previous OS before I upgraded it.
  14. Is still the newest Mac Mini a good choice as a server for FMS 15? This is for for about just 5 simultaneous users to upgrade from FMS 11 that is running fine on an older Mac Mini. Thanks in advance!
  15. Before insouciantly applying the latest OS updater, please see the Tech Info at http://thefmkb.com/15844 for important compatibility information. Steven
  16. Hi everybody, I would like to connect my FMS to an other app (Gestix) which has an API using the POST method. The method needs a response URL on which Gestix will reply the answers, and this where I'm strugeling... Is this possible in Filemaker? With the help of a plugin? I have to say that I have absolutely no experience in webservices or even HTML... Thanks everybody!
  17. OK, In my FMS15 Server Event Logs, a Server Side script is throwing a lot of 645 Informational messages for a 101 scripting error. I know what causes that - it's a loop with Exit After Last, and I know how to suppress that from the logs by adding an Exit Loop If: Get (FoundCount) = Get (RecordNumber) However, before I do that, there's an extra piece of information in the log that I don't know what it means: Schedule "RT - RoyGen (2012)" scripting error (101 [175x]) at "RightTrack v3 : 6001 | Find Payable Royalties for an Event : 288 : Go to Record/Request/Page". Right after the 101 is some data in square brackets that I can't find a definition for - in this case, it's 175x but the data varies, and is sometimes not included at all. Is this that it had this error 175 times in a row, and the Informational log has reduced this to a single line? Or is it something else?
  18. FileMker, Inc. has released the 15.0v2 updater fro FileMaker Server. http://www.filemaker.com/support/downloads/
  19. Every time I upgrade FM I lose functionality. This time, it seems that FM15 Server does not play nice with OS X Server 5. I have the latest versions of each. OS X is finding my virtual hosts just fine but installing FM15 Server breaks that. All virtual hosts display the FILEMAKER DATABASE splash screen. I read a long post about this problem relating to 13/15. Any new insights or workarounds for 15? Thanks
  20. Mr. Ignoramus We have a solution in Canada where we moved the db from a hosting company to a LAN ( customers building ) They are using a Mac OS machine running FileMaker 16 server. We access the FM 16 server via apple's remote access, having trouble locating where we would put the index.html and php files for our web form that we used when we were hosting on an outside hosting company. The hosting company put the html/php file in the folder that designated our account number. My question is this ... where would we put the two web files; index.html (form) and the .php (create record in FM) file on the FM 16 server. I can not seem to locate the instruction via the documentation FM is providing. Have done several internet search ... I am gathering information to pass to the individual helping us with the FM server at location. Anybody able to provide a link or guidance I would be grateful. Thank you.
  21. Hi - I'm sure this has been asked and answered before, but I could find it by searching. So I apologize in advance and would appreciate suggestions for resources. I have a solution I've been developing for years which was intended for single user use in a runtime. I'm creating a multiuser version that will be hosted on FM server. I'm looking for information on what to look out for and what changes I need to make to avoid problems in that environment. For instance, I'm already aware of the need to load globals from single record tables with non-global variables. I assume there must be other things like that to be aware of but I haven't found a good resource yet. Thanks for your help. Michael Oh, just to add some details, I expect to have 5-10 users at most.
  22. I have a job that I will need Filemaker to do, At the moment I would have to load it onto our old 2008 standard server till we get a new machine in the new year. For now this project will not be very intensive about 5/6 users at most. Would it work?
  23. I get strange symbols sometimes. anyone know why? is it because I do not have enough memory? Thank you.
  24. It seems that filemaker pro 12 v4 client cannot connect to FM Server 14. Is there any any documentation about this or a way around making the connection possible? Article here says it's possible: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/15003/~/filemaker-server-14-host-and-client-compatibility-chart
