  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.

    mac | pc No upgrade?

    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
  8. 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?
  9. 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?
  10. I literally copy and paste the default folder address and delete part of the path, and it still won't validate it? What gives?
  11. We have released version 2 of our Virtual Host Guide and tool, which supports FileMaker Server 13.0v5 and Yosemite, as well as the Mavericks and Mountain Lion, which is the supported versions by FMI. News in this version: The new guide will work with FileMaker Server 13.0v5 and Yosemite, as well as other supported versions. There are several new tips and tricks included in the “goodies” section. The new tool is now completely unlocked and does not use plugin anymore. Also new in this version is support for SSL. You can read more and download from here: http://www.datamanix.com/news/files/FMS-virtualhost-guide-tool-v2.html Feedback is very appreciated.
  12. Per attached, our FMS13 has shown some users like {31445/0} etc - I have never seen this before - what does it mean?

    mac How to download

    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.
  14. Hi everybody, Is there someone that have a licence to sell for a filemaker server 15? U can MP Thanks
  15. I have had intermittent problems in the past sending out multiple emails (in a loop, up to 50 emails) using the Send Mail script step. Some of the emails can fail to send. I was put in touch with an IT support person in the university where I work, and he thought that the problem might be solved by sending via an SMTP server intended specifically for applications and therefore equipped to handle the high volumes and fast speeds of the multiple emails produced by a looping set of send instructions. The prefix for the SMTP server is appsmtp rather than smtp. I gave him the IP address for my version of FM Server 14, and he created the necessary firewall exception. However, if this solution is to work, the emails must go out directly from the server rather than from an email address that is hosted by the server. Even though I provide the new server address (smtp.utoronto.ca), and the correct port, my attempts to send test emails have failed. The IT person did not see correct the IP address at his end. He saw the IP address associated with my Mac. Is what I am trying to do possible? And if it is, what do I need to do to make it work? Maybe automatic emails (that happen overnight) will work but not emails initiated by a client? If it's not possible to do what I'm trying to do, please provide any insight into why emails in a loop might intermittently fail. Would it help to provide a time buffer between sends via a pause?
  16. 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.

    mac | pc Files not downloading

    Hi Using a remote console i don't seem to be able to get the file download action to occur. It spins a few gears but nothing ever arrives. Connection on a local machine does work though. I'm currently connected to the server network via VPN and have tried both the local IP and the domain to connect to the console. thanks
  18. Hope my experience can help some searching soul out there. I got there in the end. Recently, we upgraded our FMS 12 setup to 13. In the process we had to switch off Server.app's Websites function which we used to serve our php web pages through https with certificates from an external authority (Comodo). I moved our existing php files to the httpsRoot subfolder, which is where they should go. As expected, the URL in the browser was still confirmed as starting with 'https'. But the https connection now came up as untrusted by our own (and our customers'!!) browsers and our expensive green padlock had gone. The FMS 13 Getting Started Guide just says to refer to 'your web server's documentation' for installing a certificate. That is easily said, after FMS13 disabled the Server.app's with all of its convenient features! Just as others describe elsewhere in this forum, I was taken by total suprise when FMS 13 fully took over Apple's and our standard web server setup. What was the easiest way to get the certificates back? I was hoping a slight edit of some configuration file could do the trick, since the certificates were still present on the machine and I could see them in Keychain. Over 48 hours of trial and error followed, in which I tried editing the various Apache commands in FMS's http-ssl.conf file to get them to point to the existing certificates in the /etc/certificates directory. This just resulted in the web server not starting unless I reverted to the original version of the .conf file. I looked at the CERTIFICATE and CERTIFICATE IMPORT fmsadmin commands which can be issued through Terminal. They are described in the final section of the FMS Server Help documentation. It would have been really nice had the 'Getting Started Guide' mentioned their existence, since they are your ONLY workable course of action! Ocean West's post elsewhere in this forum section provides a good step by step description of the process. However, he installs a new key/certificate pair instead of trying to get one to work which is already on your server machine. It did point me in the correct direction though. I tried exporting the key/certificate files from Keychain, converting them to the requered .pem format through Terminal commands that I found. I renamed the key file as serverKey.pem, moved it to the CStore directory, and issued the CERTIFICATE IMPORT fmsadmin command providing exported .crt file as the required certificate. This raised an error stating that key and certificate did not match, and dashed my hopes. It would seem that the serverKey.pem file which you can create with the CERTIFICATE CREATE command is FMS-encrypted, and FMS will correspondingly encrypt the .crt file during import. This probably means that unencrypted files of your own are a no go, and you are stuck with using the CERTIFICATE fmsadmin command set only with a freshly generated/ordered key/certificate pair. Which is ok if you have not already bought a certificate, but our situation is that we just want the old web server setup back so we could continue where we left off. No expenditure, no waiting on external validation - which I remember was time-consuming because we had to file business documents and wait for a phone call to verify our identity. This is beacuse our customers require that we have the safer and pricier Extended Validation version. I decided to log on to our CA, Comodo, and noticed that we could replace our certificate based on a new .csr file. This brought the solution, which was so uncomplicated that Filemaker should just have documented it! Here it is: 1. Use the CERTIFICATE CREATE command first, entering your domain name. 2. Upload the text from resulting serverKey.pem file to your CA. 3. When the certificate file arrives by email, use CERTIFICATE IMPORT + the .crt file's path. Pointing to its folder as Ocean West did, did not work for us. 4. Restart your server machine, ensuring that you have first properly closed all databases and shut down the Database Server. The folks at Comodo were really helpful, not only by providing a free replacement service, but also by springing into immediate action when I raised an urgent ticket well before the official 48-hour leadtime had passed.
  19. I noticed that the installation of the web technology in FMServer 13 has created a new site "FMWebSite" in IIS, and that I had to stop the current/default site in favor of this new one. How is this going to work if this needs to be installed on an existing website? I couldn't find any documentation from FileMaker on this subject. It looks like I will have to move all of the web files to the 'new' default folder (FMServerHTTPServerconf), or change the default path for the FMWebSite site? Would there be any problem to changing the default path in the IIS Manager? If you've noticed anything else that would be helpful in this particuar situation, I would be appreciative of any advice.
  20. 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

    Installing on VPS

    Is it possible to install FMS on a windows based VPS rather than host on a single computer?
  23. I'm sure this is an easy fix, but I can't find out how to do it anywhere.. Â Â
  24. 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
  25. 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.
