  5. Problem Upgrading to Filemaker Server 16.. We want to Upgrade from FMS 15 to 16, and each time I get this error during deployment. However, when I revert back to fms15, everything goes fine.. I have tried Clean Installation, yet same result.. Can someone put me through.. We are using Windows 7 professional as our system unit
  6. I'm new to this forum and even newer to FM... so this makes me a beginner but hoping to learn quickly.I've been hoping to find instructions on how to create a master-detail layout, not on the parent table. It seems that with many examples found, the master detail is design to work on the main page, which means when you create a new record, it creates a new field in the portal row and you add the specific name in that field and on the detail side, all data pertaining to the portal row name. I can get this to work with no problem.Where the problem comes in is here...I'm creating a songwriter database. The main opening page is designed to include the song title, artist name and all data pertaining to the song (producer, writer/publisher splits, etc) I call this layout "Song". Each new record will store a new song, artist name, etc...Now, in the Header, I added a Button bar. One of them is labeled "Pitch". The Pitch layout is designed to work with individual song titles or records, coming from the "Song" layout. This Pitch layout will include a left side portal and towards the right, detail info pertaining to each portal row. This is where I'm stuck. I'm not sure how to set this up. Any help would really be appreciated. Thank you.
  7. I've got a .xls file(s) that are being imported through the server from a PSOS process. Most of the time, it works great! On occasion, the import process will stay stuck at the Import script step. It doesn't execute it, and it throws no errors. I know it's stuck there because I'm placed some sendmail command pre and post, and I never receive the post message. The virtual user server creates just hangs there and never logs out. It doesn't show as using any system resources through the statisics screen, but other real user notice a slowdown when this happens. I also tried the same thing through a server-side schedule, with the same results. The same file will import perfectly fine when I import it through a normal FMP client connection. Once this happens, any other PSOS processes won't work. Server just keeps piling on the virtual users but never logs them out. The only way to stop this is to restart the FMSE service through the command line. I realize that there is some funky data inside the file, as I can copy just the lines that I need, paste it into a new .xls file, and then it'll work fine. But I can't expect the end users to do this with every single file. Server should be able to at least detect this issue and give an error. Something with the server import doesn't work the same way as the client version, but I just can't figure out what or why it would just hang at the import step and not throw an error. I don't know if this is a specific PC issue, as I don't have a MAC server to test this out with. Anyone seen this kind of behaviour and/or offer any suggestions? Thanks!
  8. HI, I just updated to FMS 13.0v2 and the admin console is having problems. No files or clients are listed on the Activity page. Schedules are not visible either. Files are being served properly. However it's not possible to edit a schedule. Oddly, the Close All command and Open All seem to work and the results can be seen in the Log. I've restarted the server machine. No change. Is anyone else having these problems? Rick

    mac Basic server Questions

    Hi, I'm considering purchasing FM Server. Here is my situation. I have three machines on site, all on the same home network. A Mac Pro, a Mac Mini and a MacBookPro. The mini is only used as a media server and has plenty of room. The desktop is the most used machine and I use it for all general tasks. The laptop is a convenience. The demands on the server will be light as I'm the only user. Since the Mini is the least used machine I'm thinking it's the likely candidate for server installation. Good idea? I would like to be able to develop the hosted files from either my desktop machine or my laptop. Am I correct in assuming there will be one set of files residing on the server machine and that when I want to tinker with them I would access those files remotely from either of the two non-server machines? In other words, unless I need to develop offline (I would grab the files from the server), only one set of files need exist? I've read the getting started guide but am still unclear about these things. I have absolutely no experience with server software. I've been advised that using FMS is the best way of avoiding any confusion over which file is the master or the most recent version. Thanks for any advice, Rick.

    pc PDF Flattening

    Recently I've had an issue where PDF's generated from FileMaker take a very long time to print (20 minutes) and the dialogue box says they are "flattening". The internet seems to think this has something to do with transparencies in the PDF but I cannot figure out what is causing it and why it happens with some PDFs but not others. At first I thought it was caused by having a corner radius but that wasn't it. Anybody else see this behavior or know what causes it? -- Dan White
  11. I've had a couple of php web forms made so that website visitors can submit info directly into the Server hosted FM database. Is it best to put the php forms on the fm server or the website server?
  12. Just talked to FM tech support, they currently have no guidance on this. Anyone have any comment on if/how this affects the server? I just read this post on the FM company forum: Eliminating the POODLE Vulnerability in FMS 13 on OS X Forum post posted October 21, 2014 by JohnDCCIU, last edited October 21, 2014 47 Views Title: Eliminating the POODLE Vulnerability in FMS 13 on OS X Your post: I did a little playing around to see if I could eliminate the POODLE vulnerability in FMS 13 running on OS X. FMS 13 installs its own version of Apache, it doesn't use the version from Apple as it did in previous versions. Out of the box, FMS 13 is vulnerable to POODLE. I turns out that the FMS web SSL functionality is controlled in an Apache config include file at /Library/FileMaker Server/HTTPServer/conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf I edited that file with TextWrangler and applied the POODLE mitigation (adding "-SSLv3" on the end of the existing "SSLProtocol" line), restarted the server, and poof: no more POODLE vulnerability. My server seems to be fine afterwards, but YMMV, so use at your own risk, and only if you know how to edit config files without mucking things up (and always make a backup of the file before editing regardless). It's uncertain if FMS will eventually overwrite that config (since it manages it itself), either during normal operations or during a future upgrade (unless FMI incorporates that into the next upgrade, which they should), but so far the mitigation has survived a few reboots, so it seems stable. You can test your server's POODLE vulnerability at http://whodig.com/poodle/ or for a more comprehensive SSL test (including POODLE), use https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/ John
  13. I'm wondering (because I have not been able to get it to work so far) if my scenario is even possible.  Mac Pro tower running Yosemite and FileMaker Server -system resides on network but not bound/associated to any particular Directory service, Active Directory or Open Directory  FileMaker Pro clients running Windows 7 and FileMaker Pro 13 -any and all of these client pc's reside on the same network, slightly different subnet -all pc's are a part of Windows Domain that is administered by the state dept for my government agency -all pc's can access FM databases when file-level authentication is used  I want to keep from creating and managing a separate list of users/passwords and utilize our already existing AD accounts (180 users) to authenticate to the FileMaker databases that we build. Our state department has stated that binding the Mac OS box running FileMaker server to AD is not allowed.  Is there any scenario based on our setup that we could devise that would allow us to use FileMaker external authentication? I've been through the FileMaker whitepapers about the subject and all give scenarios but none quite like ours. Most assume the FileMaker server would be running a M$ operating system and already be joined to Active Directory.  Even in our case, I've already mentioned that our state department will not permit me to join/bind the FileMaker server to AD. Being a state sized domain it is pretty large with groups created for 88 different county agencies under the state. I do have access to see Active Directory structure and can test with my user account that is a member of a group specific to just my county. The group only contains myself and one other user but alas it does not work and when attempting to login I just get the message "The account and password you entered cannot be used to access this file. please try again".  My state agency keeps referring me to LDAP and that that is the protocol they allow us county folks to use but I cannot seem to understand whether that will help me or if it is even related to this type of setup.
  14. Does anyone have any work around for getting at the contents of a file imported into a container field that will work using a server side script? I would like a user to import a file into a container field and have the server process the file later. Ideas?
  15. When a user logs into FileMaker Server, is there any way to keep that user from seeing all of the databases that have been uploaded? I would like to allow the user to only see the databases he/she has access to. Thanks, Susie
  16. I can't enable additional database folders. My system is: MacOsX 10.9.2, Filemaker Server   The message is: "Not a valid path: filemac:/MacOSX/Users/Nunes/Databases/" I tried to use various paths, but the message is the same  Someone knows what's wrong? Thanks
  17. I have a solution that has been working great in testing. Went to move it to the FMS Server (WinServer2012R2) and none of the external data sources are available. Confirmed that the ODBC 32-bit System DSNs are the same on development machine vs. Server but still no love. Anyone have some hints where I went wrong?

    SSL Connection State Issues

    If you are experiencing SSL connection state issues with FileMaker Server, this post by Wim Decorte is an absolute must read:http://www.soliantconsulting.com/blog/2016/06/filemaker-15-bonjour-goodbye-ssl-challenges Steven
  19. Is it possible to port a custom certificate that I've been using in my production FMS13 system to be used for FMS14 without having to have it reissued? I'll be decommissioning the equipment that is currently running FMS13, which is a single Mac server. The new equipment will be a two machine configuration that will have the same IP and domain name addresses as previous.

    Installing on VPS

    Is it possible to install FMS on a windows based VPS rather than host on a single computer?
  21. is the client machine hardware important for performance? or is just the server? or both ? i have been having some troubles in some client machines that crash when sorting records, but i really don't know if the problem comes from the server or client please let me know thank you
  22. A customer experiences problems while shutting down a database: after he closes the database using the console, some users are still able to connect. Existing users get the message asking them to close the file(s) they are working on, but some users keep on reconnecting, with success. The files show the status 'closing' in the console. Could this be a communication problem between the console and the server? Or are there other possible causes? It's regular FMPA clients (13 and 14), no WebDirect. Some (but not all) are Robot PC's, performing a timed 'watchdog' process. FMS13 on WindowsServer 2008R2. HEH
  23. I have been having some installation difficulty with getting my FMS 13 onto our Windows 2012 R2 box. When it installs, it gives me the well known dialog about ports 80 & 443 being required. It says port 443 is in use. When I called Filemaker, they walked me through a netstat -ab | more command. That command showed that 443 was listening but line #2 said: "Can not obtain ownership information" So, now I don't know what part of the 2012 Windows OS to address to clear that port. I also don't know *precisely* how to set up the firewall (or if it needs to be set up) so that may be a problem as well. Any ideas would be of great help! Thanks! PS - ports 445 and 111 also show the same thing and I think it is OS.
  24. I need to create and run a scheduled script (or script sequence) that will give me a list of what accounts are logged in, then change a field in a record for each account holder. Any resources anyone could point me to for learning how to do this?
  25. When I try to create (or edit) a new side server scheduled script with FMS I get the following prompt when entering user full access credentials to select a script from one my hosted files: "No scripts are available for the specified account" If I have recently restarted the server, in spite of the warning I can still click the Next button and continue with the configuration of the scheduled event. After leaving the script running by itself for a little while, the script will abort due to authentication errors and when I try to re-edit the event, this time I won't be allowed to pass the "No scripts are available for the specified account" Very frustrating. Obviously no changes to script names or privileges have been done during this time. FMS server just breaks on its own. Anyone please, any ideas of what could be the problem here. I am using FMS 13.04 on a Mac Pro with OS X 10.9.5 I have had many issues with FMS since I migrated our solution to FM13 from FM11, with a new server machine and all new FM software. I don't know if the root of my problems comes from the server configuration. For instance, I can only access the Admin console from the local host machine. localhost:16001/admin-console if I try with the actual LAN ip address from the same computer or any other in the network: I get an error I mention this in case someone could see a connection here with my other issue.
