  1. Am about to move to a two-machine deployment of FMS 13.0.10, having acquired a second X-Serve. However, although both have the same CPU, one has 12GB RAM and one 24GB. Also, the bigger one has 3x 15000rpm SAS drives, whereas the smaller one has the more usual 3x 1TB SATA drives, (RAID5 in both cases) My plan was to utilise the new smaller one as the WebDirect Server (as not all my hosted solutions use WebDirect). But am wondering if this is the best way around.
  2. Hi everyone. I'm working for a very small company (4-5) users. The project I'm working on is upgrading them from FM 5.5 to FM 13. I've successfully managed to upgrade the database files, now we have to focus on the hardware. I think it's 3-4 Mac users, and 1-2 PC users. They would like the ability to use the database remotely. Right now, they have FM Server on an again old mac machine. Were looking to buy a new server. Mac or Windows? Pros, and cons?
  3. Hi: Today I went through the purchase options and did not find an upgrade possibility for server. Has this been eliminated for server? Best regards Carlos
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. Hi there,  I am having the problems in accessing the data stored in container fields using  php. The containers are not remotely stored. A screenshot is attached showing the database settings for container field. I am able to access data stored in other fields from a remote computer using php api. But when I try to access the container fields... For: $image=$record->getField('container field');     $attach=$fm->getContainerData(urlencode($image));     if (FileMaker::isError($attach)) {       echo "Error: " . $attach->getMessage() . "n";     }  I get:: Error: getContainerData() does not support remote containers  For: echo $fm->getContainerDataURL(urlencode($record->getField('containerfield')));  I get a url in response simlilar to :: http://HOSTIP/fmi/xml/cnt/Untitled.jpg?-db=DATABASENAME&-lay=LAYOUTNAME&-recid=253&-field=containerfield  When try to open the url in a browser I get a  xml in return that has ::   <error code="959"/>   My server has php and xml access enabled for the privilege set I am using.  Thanks in advance   Â
  9. I've been checking out PSOS but have yet to use it. I suppose any concerns about whether a file is local or hosted could be resolved with something along the lines of: If(Get(HostName)) PSOS etc. Else Perform Script etc. That way if a file isn't hosted the script would run locally. However there doesn't seem to be a way to DeBug a PSOS designated script. Is it safe to say that if a script shows compatibility with Server (and all the contexts are made clear as required) that the script will run on the server? I've yet to do safe testing on a number of routines I believe would be better handled server side and am uncertain how to proceed.
  10. Per attached, our FMS13 has shown some users like {31445/0} etc - I have never seen this before - what does it mean?
  11. I know how to manually install plugins on FileMaker Server 13 but I am struggling to find clear and concise step-by-step instructions that explain how to install server plugins using the new scripted install method. The official FileMaker Server 13 documentation is extremely lacking in details. It explains how to enable the feature to allow plugins to run on the server but where are the instructions for installing them via a script? Does anyone have a good resource for learning how to do this? Also...where do you enter the license information for server plugins? Thanks.
  12. Dear All, I have tried to access the SQL database, through the ODBC, as a data source in the online filemaker solution but I am not successful , i don't know if i am missing something ? can any one help in this regard ? Thanks in advance. Regards Mr. Ali Bahar Pakistan.
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. Hi, I've been researching the feasibility of accessing Filemaker Server through ODBC/JDBC from PERL on Linux, and seem to have drawn a blank. There seem to be no Filemaker ODBC drivers for Linux. One article I found said that it is possible with JDBC, but before I start reading about that, I just wanted to check that it's definitely impossible to access FMS from PERL/Linux using ODBC. Many thanks,
  17. I have a couple of sequence scripts configured on our FM14 server (under Windows 2008 R2) and for some reason, the system level scripts after the internal FM scripts no longer launch under the identity I specify in the schedule config. They always launch under System and that's causing access problems. The server has been rebooted and I have tried brand new schedules for the tasks but nothing changes. Anyone seen similar behavior and have a solution? Thanks
  18. Hi Folks, I am a sysadmin but a new user of FMP13 server and at our university we use InCommon SSL certs (they are free to us), which are widely accepted and have worked well for websites, etc. However, at first glance it does not appear to be possible to use an InCommon cert with FMP13 Server -- am I correct about this? It appears Filemaker only supports these certs: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/11413/ Please let me know if I'm correct or incorrect about this...and if there are any workarounds! Thanks, Dan
  19. I'm looking for the best way to test that files are open and "normal" on a number of FM Server 13 Windows deployments that a client has scattered all over the place. Note that this is testing for a positive result, not looking for a negative result (like, that a file isn't open because of problem). There are a couple of ways that come to mind: Write an OS-level script to get the filenames and status from fmsadmin at the command line, send them to a text file and deal with that appropriately. Another way to do it is have an FM script do something like check that each file is open on the host and record the results. Either way seems like more work than it should be. Is there a better way? A simple way? All help is appreciated. Doug
  20. Hi all, I need some help with script. Last weekend we migrated from 11 to 13 and as it turns out all our OLE objects are gone because of the change in FM 12. My workaround is to get the data from 11 and insert each one. with that said i was told i could create a script to open the attachment (excel, pdf) and in the case of the excel file make changes and then click another script to save changes to Excel. I believe the script would need to write to a temp file. Does anybody know any info on this. I'm starting to move the files from 11 to 13, but i would like to provide the users with the ability to click on a box so the attachment opens up. that way they don't have to do right click and export. Thank you
  21. Hi, we are going to sync two filemaker server 15 with 360works mirrorsync. does anyone have any experiance with that? how did it work? Thanks for your help Mikael.
  22. 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.
  23. We are currently running FM Server 12 with unlimited concurrent FMGO connections. We want to install the FM Server 13 trial but I need to know how many concurrent connections the trial allows so it does not disrupt access to our server.
  24. I have hunted everywhere in FMS admin honestly I have. I have served my files and I have been changing them and now I want to zip a set so I closed the files or should I get the backup? I know I must be careful. There should be a button in FMS admin which when I select a file, it closes it nicely and presents a download dialog. Yes I am backing up also but I have iPad files and I want to keep them together as a set. I do see that I can email a file to myself but is that safe? I thought they should be zipped before emailing files.
  25. Hi, not sure this is the correct forum we have a calc field for our Invoice total ... Sum(inv_invitm_InvoiceID::Total Sell Price) + (Amount Imported/1.1) ... which is the sum of all the invoice items records + the value of the invoice total for all the old invoices imported prior to starting with FM Our file is hosted in Brisbane with nightly backups to my office in Sydney So all works fine then one day doing a find on the cacl field only finds those records where the search value = Amount Imported .. it won't find any invoices where the Sum of the invoice items = the search value However, the Find still works correctly on the overnight backup files !! the hosting mob reboot their server and it's fine again .. for a while then it stops working again anyone ever come across this ? the hosting mobs can't work it out .. they host other company's files and haven't had any reported probs ? .. so far it only seems to be a prob with that field, although most of the time our finds are not on calc fields thanks Cate
