  1. 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 daily copies of the database stored in the NAS (pending) Have a progressive backup executed by night (when no users are connected), saved in a NAS folder and have that folder backed up in Dropbox or Amazon (pending) There are two issues to take in account: All the backups must run unattended, I mean without the need to log into the server. The server machine should be ready for backup just after start up. I have a limited knowledge of LAN administration and command line. So far I tried to: Sync the backup folder with the NAS using GoodSync: the software is not reliable, sometimes simply doesn't sync and their customer support is useless. I've heard of rsync a system utility that should be more reliable but I'm I don't know how to use it. Sync the NAS copy with Dropbox: Synology Cloud Sync utility is limited by the hardware, in my case 15.000 files is the maximum. To have 200.000 files syncing every day seems unrealistic Have a FMS progressive backup on a NAS shared folder: so far I haven't been able to give FMS access to the remote folder, I can't validate the filemac:/volume/folder/ path Following the steps in this article (http://www.soliantconsulting.com/blog/2012/11/filemaker-backups-network-share), set up a shell script that sends a backup to the NAS. The script -based in FMS command line- is executed by the default user and goes simply: fmsadmin BACKUP -d filemac:/volume/folder/ It doesn't work, I get "Error 732 Invalid account name or password" and I am not sure if it's the script or simply the access to the remote folder (the path is invalid for progressive backup). My questions: How can I make fmserver own a remote folder in the Synology NAS? Do I need to create the users in the NAS? how can I create a fmserver user without knowing the user password? The shell script above, for backing up to the NAS is it correct? In addition to the local backup, do you think a progressive backup in two media (the NAS and the cloud) is safe enough in case of disaster? In sum, can you help me set up a rock solid backup system for my solution?
  2. I am currently running a File Maker Pro 11 solution on my laptop and have been using FileMaker Go on my iPhone and iPad to access it while on the road for several years now. It works very well. Occasionally however, the laptop freezes up while I am gone and then FileMaker Go can't access it. I got to thinking that perhaps I could somehow run the whole thing on my NAS device which has never seemed to have stop working like the laptop does on occasion. The NAS is known as the Z: drive on my network. Is it possible to put the FileMaker Pro 11 program on the NAS and then access the solution with FileMaker Go? I don't fully understand networks and therefore am at a bit of a loss. Will the program run on the NAS? and if so, how do I get FileMaker Go to access the solution? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Don
