  1. We have a couple of servers running on AWS. As of the middle of last week we suddenly are having connection problems. The server logs mostly lists error 10, sometimes error 51. These customers have poor internet connection, so we have set up a server and a client in the cloud. The users connects to the client through an RDP session. It is a Windows enviroment with one customer using Windows server 12 and FMS 14, the other Windows server 16 and FMS15. We use a seperate AD server to control the RDP access and accounts to the FMP server, clients have no acces to the FMS server. I have read p
  2. Any suggestions/limitations to hosting FMS 15 in a virtualized environment? Currently, we host a 30-40 user, 10 gig FM db on a physical server, however, p to v is being suggested by others in our organization (They're also inclined to config pooled versus static resource settings which would seem to affect the manner FMS functions) Elaborating on specific VM configurations in a Windows environment would be greatly appreciated!
  3. I'm looking for both guidance and software to assist in FileMaker Change Control. With over a 100 deployed solutions across multiple servers the process change management from dev > test > production is very labor intensive. BaseElements helps a lot but it is only one part of the puzzle. Porting the data from production > test across these solutions and then doing UAT and QA is again, labor intensive. How are others handling this? Is there some software or process documents I'm missing? I'd welcome any input to this topic. Mike
  4. I'm wrapping my head around the Standby Server feature, and there's only one aspect that I can't figure out. I use Webdirect, so I'm forwarding port 80 to the internal ip address assigned to my primary server. If that were to go down, my standby server would take over - but it's assigned a different ip address - so my router's port forwarding rules will still be pointing to the ip address of the primary server. Is this accurate? If so, is there a way around this?
  5. Hi, I am relatively new to FileMaker. I am a PHP developer currently working on a project that involves the FMS custom web publishing PHP API. I was able to successfully connect using the API, but the connection is no longer working. The error message says only "Unable to open file". My research says that this could be due to the database file not being open, or to a permissions issue. I can see in the FMS admin console that the database file is open, with "normal" status. The FMWEBDIRECT and PHP columns both have full circles, indicating that the database should be accessible through the P
  6. For security reasons, my institution is requiring me to migrate my FMS15 solution, currently residing on a MacPro in my office, to the IT data center. Since they do not run MacOS, this includes a migration to a hosted windows server running FMS advanced. I no nothing about windows (eg: what is a hosted win server vs simple win server ???) , so I will be totally dependent on the IT staff knowing what they are doing (and they barely know FM, I narrowly escaped having them try to recreate the solution in Access for $$$$$ ...): Current Environment · FileMaker Server Advanced running
  7. Hello, I have a filemaker server 15 advanced running on windows server 2008r2 in a local LAN network. I want to connect to server with client (filemaker 15 pro). Everything work well in the local LAN but I am unable to access to the database outside the office using internet connection and IP. I just have made the port forwarding setup (5003 and 16000) but no results. Maybe the Windows server need to be opened in some service or funcionality? Before of the server I had a simepl windows XP pc running filemaker server 5.5 and it work well also outside the lan. Thank you
  8. Quick question. I know there is a way to create a standby server for filemaker, but what happens if the worker machine fails? Is there a backup option for that? I've been hunting around and haven't found anything to address this. Does the master machine take over for the worker? Any insight? (Thanks in advance)
  9. We have had Filemaker 15 Server up and running of while but when we originally installed it was installed on port 444 (because of our router configuration). We wanted to reinstall using port 443. So I uninstalled per instructions, uninstalling, bonjour, microsoft items, java etc... Rebooted our Windows Server 2012. Ran installer and got the error message the port 443 was not open. Rand netstat -a -o from command prompt, it said Filemaker 14/ on port 443 was listening (PID 768 and 4), So used skill to kill the PID. Rebooted, still unable to install Filemaker 15, port not open. Then went
  10. Good afternoon everyone, Some BackStory: When FMCloud was first announced, I was ecstatic; I'm all for moving towards cloud technology for my agency. I was nearly there...about to pull the trigger and start a migration scheme from my current setup into the FMCloud, but then the one big caveat was found.. "Supports custom app authentication via FileMaker user accounts only" AKA no External Authentication. But that is fine, I understand it was released for small businesses which need the scalability of AWS, but this DOES NOT work for my agency. I spent half a year moving aw
  11. Hello, Stange situation here. After reinstalling FMS15 to resolve an issue, one of my FMPA clients on just one of my computers displays "connection failed" when trying connect to the available databases on the server when trying to connect with the local ip adresse. All while several other computers have no problem doing the same. The FMPA client that has the issue has no problem connect to available databases via an external ip address. I have never seen this before and can't find any meaningful information on this by googling. Would anyone have any idea what's going wrong here? Th
  12. I'm reaching the 125 database limit of filemaker server, so I need to deploy a second and was hoping I can do that on the same network and just change the default ports. But I must be missing something because I'm not able to bring up the admin console after installation. I think it has to do with a conflict on port 5003, but I'm not sure. (FYI the databases don't have to talk to each other - they are all silo'd) My question is this - is there a way to run more than one filmmaker server deployment on the same network? If not, my only thought would be to create a virtual network with my r
  13. Hello from the UK Does anyone have a good solution for automatically copying the FileMaker backup files to something like Google Drive on Mac OS X? FMS doesn't let you set the local Google Drive folder as the backup location as it doesn't have the correct permissions (I assume). I have purchased CarbonCopyCloner (shareware) for some customers which will do it, but does anyone have a great solution to copy those files using built-in or free tools? I suspect that there is a UNIX command that will do it, but I'm not very well versed in that. Any clues would be good! Merry
  14. Hi, I just installed FMS 15 and have found that a couple of my databases won't open in FMS15 once they have been uploaded. I have tried recovering them before uploading but all to no avail. Would anyone have any ideas what might be going wrong here?
  15. I'm unsure where exactly to post this so I'll try it here. If there's a better place please move this but it seems to be the correct category. I'm looking to setup hosting for a 15 member team who will be primarily accessing the database via WebDirect. However, I'd like to connect the solution to MySQL and open up parts of the database to 50 other users via Custom Web Publishing (php). I'd appreciate any feedback on hosting companies who can handle some or all of the following: licensing, WebDirect, Custom Web Publishing and ODBC. I looked into FileMaker Cloud but it doesn't seem to
  16. Hi all, trying to schedule my first system server script and I am getting an error: Dec 2, 2016 9:35:00 AM Server Events Error 692 Schedule "fms backup to net vol" aborted; system script "fms_BackupScript.sh" returned non-zero status 12.

  17. Hello All, Recently, my company installed FM server 15 after much begging. The database that my group uses (built in FM12)is hosted on a laptop (running FM12) and I'd like to upload it to the server using FM . I cannot figure out how do do it; there is no "Upload to Server" option, and I'd rather not do it manually. If anyone has some guidance, I'd really appreciate it...
  18. Hi everybody, Is there someone that have a licence to sell for a filemaker server 15? U can MP Thanks
  19. Hello folks Today I am tasked with showing performance metrics: We need to see how FileMaker Server responds to 300 users performing intensive tasks simultaneously. For example, finds, sorts, new record creation and so on. I have a test bed of scripts which loop and perform such tests, such as creating lots of records and populating them with dummy data, and so on. Now I just need to figure out a way to have 300 FileMaker clients perform these tests simultaneously so I can monitor server metrics. I do not have access to 300 real machines. The only case I can come up with is to use m
  20. I have a system being hosted using FMS14. I also have a duplicate database hosted for testing/exporting using FMS15. PSOS is much slower in my hands with FMS15. Both servers are physical boxes, with similar (maybe identical) specs (Cores, RAM HD Space, HD Space available) I also have a Server Side script that creates a found set, exports data to excel and emails it to a user. (This is based on https://www.skeletonkey.com/restoring-filemaker-clients-found-set-within-server-side-script/). The exports have a couple of related fields, but no unstirred calculations. Using FMS14 th
  21. I keep a backup copy of my hosted solution (under OS X) in the default FMS Data/Backup folder. The backup is scheduled twice a day (noon and night) and I keep 5 versions of each copy. The solution includes nearly 100.000 pdf files in managed container fields (RC_Data_FMS folder), in total only these files take 10GB of disk space. I would like to follow the 3-2-1 backup rule so I should be storing 2 more copies of the solution, I would use a Synology NAS in the LAN, so my plan is: Keep the 2 daily copies stored in the Data/Backup folder, in the server disk (Done!) Have 2 more
  22. FMS15/FMP15 {{FilePath}} on my hosted files usually returns the expected fmnet:/<server.ip.address>/<myfile> Can anyone tell me why one server returns fmnet:/<server.ip.address> <server.ip.address> <server.ip.address>/<myfile> Yes, ip address three times with a return between? {{HostIPAddress}} just returns the one IP as expected
  23. I just installed FMS 15 on a Windows 2008 R2 machine - everything checked out and the install went smooth. I then purchased a Wildcard SSL certificate from Go Daddy. I generated a CSR from the FMS Admin Console and pasted the encrypted text into Go Daddy's text box to setup my SSL. Here is the problem: The CSR generated from the FMS Console set the domain as mydomain.com instead of fmpserver.mydomain.com Where does Filemaker Server Console get the information used to generate the CSR? How do I get FMS to generate a CSR with the correct sub-domain? It is a FQDN (sub) th
  24. I've a hosted database with a container field that contains pdf stored externally and open (not encrypted). The database has thousands of pdfs that were imported from a disk by a record-by-record script, those pdf can be seen from any fm client without problem. Now I've uploaded a pdf from a OS X clients, but the file doesn't show in Windows machines, instead I get a "file not found" message, but the files are there because they can be seen from the OS X client. I remark that the problem is only with the files that were uploaded manually using the command 'Insert PDF' from the c
  25. I think I may be trying to do something that is not possible. All I am doing is trying to do a simple, short-term test. I am updating a 20 yo solution that ran on FMS5 connected directly thru a fixed IP address. I have a dedicated Mac as my FMS15 Host. I am using FMP15 Client on different Mac. Both are behind my router. Local access to hosted files is 100%. I want to test host access via internet. I set my router IP address to fixed. My host Mac IP is fixed. I enter the router IP address in the Launch Center, I get nothing most of the time. Once or twice after an obscurely
