  1. Hi all I have three backup schedules: hourly, daily and weekly. To reduce any lag experienced by end users during the day I am wondering if I should do away with the verification step for the hourly one, which would speed up the backup. I would keep it on the other two and would be emailed by FMS if there were an issue. But if there were a crash and I wanted to restore from the hourly one, how do I know the data integrity is OK? Obviously if there were an issue I would use the older daily one, but that is a risk I'd be willing to take if it sped things up. Thanks
  2. I'm running FMS 16 on macOS 10.12.6. FMS is up and running, and I can access the hosted databases. But I can't get into the admin console. When I enter the credentials, it just sits there. It doesn't throw an error. It just doesn't react at all. Same thing when I intentionally enter an incorrect passcode. No error. Same behavior whether I use Firefox or Safari. Same behavior whether I try to come in remotely, or if I work directly from the server as localhost. So, something is wrong with web services rather than FMS, right?
  3. FMP Server 11 Advanced

    So, I have been using FileMaker since the day it came out in the 1980s and was produced by Deneba. we are a small law firm and are currently using FileMaker Pro 11 on about eight or nine clients in the office and FileMaker Pro server 11 in the office. Not one crash in about seven or eight years. However now because of our VPN issues it looked like we were going to have to upgrade all of our FileMaker system but then I decided to try the IW P, putting the database on the Internet. However after a lot of checking and googling it appears that while FileMaker Pro 11, FileMaker Pro 11 advanced, FileMaker Pro server 11 advanced cane each published to the website that FileMaker Pro server 11 cannot. So the question is where can I purchase a copy of FileMaker Pro server 11 advanced? Anyone have any suggestions? I don't want to upgrade the entire office to the next levels because everything is simply working beautifully. Thanks for any information you can provide. rayseligman@gmail.com
  4. I think there was some instructions somewhere, but I cannot find them . I have a created local file and server file. Both contain the exact same data. I want to deploy this solution, but I want to avoid a massive first-time sync. How can I avoid a massive first-time sync?

  6. IMPORTANT - I am currently installing Filemaker Server 16 on a desktop PC running Windows 7 Pro. I know that it is not ideal, but I havent been given clearance on using the Windows 12 server computer.. After the files have been installed for Filemaker 16 Server, I am given a 1920 Error from Windows stating that I might not have the correct privileges to start the services. This cause the installer to cancel and rollback. I have updated bonjour, updated Java to the latest version, I have made sure that all the windows updates have been installed. I disables the DEP and I start using the setup.exe file found in the file folder of the Filemaker Setup folder. If anyone has encounter this issue before and knows or has any suggestions on what course of actions to try next, I will be very appreciative on thier help. I will also append to this if i find the solution. Currently in the process of uninstalling bonjour, java and the C++ files, restarting the PC and reinstalling the server files again. kind regards
  7. SCRIPT NOT SERVER COMPARTIBLE

    Hello everyone.. Guess I have been away for a while. Not fully back though because I am not really engaged with computer tech stuff at the moment. However, I really stumbled across a problem earlier today while going through my email logs. I observed that a server script I had set up has not been attaching the Pdf file report as supposed to. It only delivers the message while leaving out the file attachment. I did test the script when I added it but what I did not test was the result when run by the server. Allow user Abort [Off] Commit Records/Requests [No dialog] Set Variable [$FileName;Value:"Summary"&".pdf"] Set Variable [$PDFPath;Value:Get(TemporaryPath) &".pdf"] Go to Layout ["Summary_Layout] Perform Script ["Print_Page_Setup"] Save Records as PDF [Restore;No dialog;"$PDFPath";Current record] Send Mail [Send via SMTP Server;No dialog] As at the time of my writing the script, I was not observant about server-side scripts. I did go back just recently to observe that the "Save Records as PDF" script step is not server compatible. Please, is there any work around on this? Much help is appreciated.
  8. Hey, I have a question about hosting my filemaker database. If I buy a license for 5 people form here: https://store.filemaker.com/filemaker-cloud , will I also need to purchase 5 normal FileMaker 16 Pro Client licenses so people can actually connect to the database? I don't quite understand how this works yet, maybe someone can help me out. Do I get the client licenses with the purchase of a server license? I need 5 people to be able to access it. Thanks in advance, Mike
  9. Raid server setup

    I'm thinking of redoing my fm server and upgrading to 16. My users experence a lot of slow down when remote users are connected or when multiple users are in the same layout/table doing data entry. Im hoping setting up a raid 1+0 might solve this. I have a Mac Pro trash can server with 16gb ram. Right now server and the database are stored on the same single ssd. should I keep the server app installed on the internal ssd and move the database file to a thunderbolt raid? Is that how I get the most benefit? can anyone recommend a great raid controller or point me to a setup recommendation?
  10. Hello, I installed supercontainer on my Windows server at aws Amazon. I also installed the companion plug-in. It shows up on Filemaker Pro no problem. But it doesn't show on webdirect. Any idea? Here is my configuration: - FMS 15, Windows 2016 server. - SuperContainer 2.94, build 9234. - I have the companion plugin put inside "..\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\publishing-engine\cwpc\Plugins". - The plug-in I use is "SuperContainer_Companion_Plugin.fmx64". Thanks. P.S.: I will send an email to 360works. But just want to post it here so we can all share the solution. Thanks.
  11. On two Filemaker Server machines I manage, I cannot get FTPeek to activate. After checking the checkbox, a grey message appears appears stating that the plugin was enabled, but the checkbox is unchecked. I have checked the permissions of the plugins. Both owned by fmserver and group fmsadmin. I have restarted the machines. I have tried Wim's suggestion of installing with server-side script. Both have Java 1.6 installed. Both have the BaseElements plugin installed and successfully enabled. Both are running FMS 14.04. One is a Mac mini running Yosemite, with Core 2 Duo processor and 8gb. Other is a Mac mini running El Capitan with Core 2 Duo and 4gb.
  12. FileMaker Pro 15 Launch Center connects to our AWS instance with no problem. But then it reports No files are currently hosted on AWS instancename. Well, there ARE files currently hosted. We access them via WebDirect, so they must be hosted. Moreover, when we launch a local copy of the file, FileMaker offers to open the remote copy with This file has previously been uploaded to FileMaker Server. Use Hosted Version? It even displays the proper address for the hosted file. However Use Hosted Version returns this error: The file “filename.fmp12“ could not be opened. (Extended privilege disabled) So, we created a privilege set that extended privileges for fmwebdirect, fmapp and fmxdbc. On the next launch of Remote Version, we got this: FileMaker cannot share a file because FileMaker network sharing is turned off. So, we turned on ODBC sharing, and on the next launch, we got this: FileMaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing files using FileMaker Pro on this computer. I’m going in circles here. Are these errors related? What am I doing wrong?
  13. I am working already a few months on my file "DTW-new.fmp12" via the FM-server 15 on my MacBook Pro without problem and suddenly today this file can't be found anymore, although it is still on the server. But it shows that the status is "Closed", so I probably should change this to "Normal" or something else. Sorry for my ignorance, but I can't figure out how to do this. I tried with "open" and "open all", but this doesn't help me. Thanks for any help, Jerome
  14. Memory issues

    I am running a server script periodically (every hour lets say) which does some database maintenance, uploads some files, etc. I do this on a number of Filemaker Servers (latest server version running on Windows machines) without problems…except for one server. On this server I use scriptmaster to up load some large files into containers as they are generated from scientific instruments. The problem is that the server runs seems to run out of RAM memory after a "few" days. I think this is the only thing that this server does differently than the other 4 servers and feel that this is the problem. My question is…is there a way to "flush" memory used by the plugin or by the FM server. Has anyone else experienced something similar or am I barking up the wrong tree? Thanks.
  15. I suspect this has been answered before but my searches aren't finding what I need. I have two databases and I'm linking fields from DB2 to the interface in DB1. I have external authentication going. When user connects to DB1 their asked for authentication for DB2. I don't what them to have access to DB2 and I don't want them to see DB2 as would happen if I were to even give them read only. I've setup the External Data Source between the two FileMaker databases. What might I be missing? I should be able to display data from other databases without giving the user read access to all the databases. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say and thank you for any help. Where's my Boot-Camp, ~MCSEBOT
  16. Server SMTP with gmail

    LS, I am trying to enter a gmail account data for the smtp-data in FMServer. It is however failing on me. I was able to configure the account in my email program with these settings, so what gives ? Any takers ?
  17. Hi, I've purchased a CloudMail license. I'm going to use it in an environment with 1 FileMaker Server v14 and 12 FileMaker Pro v14 clients. The database is already on the server, and the plugin is activated, but I'm not able to use CloudMail functions with a client that doesn't have the plugin installed. How can I register the license and use the database from a client? Thanks
  18. Hello there, I'm just investigating on 2 issue I have on sync 2 DB, 1 on the server and 1 on the iPad that are set to use a Spoke Db in the middle tier. Basically the sync is set to copy ALL the data from some tables on the server to the local db and send some data from the local db to the end server db. For some reason, on a large table, called Articles, with more than 130k records, the sync does not copy all the record for some users. There is no 'filter' based on user on the end db, and I run a pre-populate sync on the spoke db that copied all 130k records. When the sync is run for that specific user, the final result on the iPad is that the sync DELETES 12k records for no apparent reason. In addition, there is a Global table that has always 1 records and is get from the server to the client. But I found some times that there are several records on that table (more than 10) on the server, even if the sync is set to write on the spoke and not viceversa for that table. I have the suspect that are written from the sync. Is it possible? Thanks in advance, Gianluca
  19. Hi, I have MirrorSync(2.6) configuration with FileMaker Server to FileMaker Server Configuration. I Stop the synchronisation, I stop FileMaker server spoke , I transfer on the new one... I have to change the ip configuration on the Spoke Server but MirrorSync ask me to install with a clean DataBase .... But it's impossible because we have a lot of Container Field ... and it will take to much time... What can i do to not have this problem. Thank you Marc
  20. Insert From URL timeout

    I am using Insert From URL to send HTTP GET request to my server and get the result. I have a function PING that returns 1 if the server is online, but it cannot returns 0 if it is not so I am catching the error on filemaker : Connection timed out; the timeout value is 60 seconds. Is there a way to reduce this timeout value so the user does not have to wait a minute to know that the server is offline ? Similarly, if a process takes too long to answer, is there a way I can timeout the Insert From URL command ?
  21. I'm trying to execute a windows cmd script server-side from client machines. I've got this working locally using Send Event, but I found that this command isn't compatible with server schedules, which I believe would be the best way to do this in conjunction with a flag. The specifics of the script I'm wanting to deploy are: We use Google Apps for our user accounts, of which we have thousands. We currently use Google Apps Manager, a cmd tool for making remote changes to accounts and other aspects of Google apps, on a linux server as part of an automated workflow that is triggered by Filemaker/ODBC etc. However, occasionally the process trips up, or a user needs changes to be made to their account so I'm wanting to create an interface in Filemaker that the team can use to execute a server-side script that performs actions on a record-by-record basis. E.g., one of the script steps is Send Event [""; "aevt"; "odoc"; "cmd.exe /c gam create user " & Enrolled Courses::Gmail & " firstname " & Contact Details::First Name &" lastname " & Contact Details::Last Name & " password " & Enrolled Courses::Password] - this works when run locally on the server, but not from clients due (I presume) to the Send Event step. We can't install the command line tool on each of the client machines due to security implications, and also because they're a mix of macs & PCs and the server is Windows, so I really need to be able to execute the cmd.exe server-side (although there is a Python flavour of the tool, if that opens up any options). If there any way to do this that also allows passing the required variables? Many thanks in advance. Paul
  22. Hello - I searched what I could but I am completely new to these forums so I apologize if I missed another thread. My question is whether it is feasible for a FM professional to take over an existing server given how customizable I understand it to be. Also, assuming it is, where would I go about contacting and vetting said professionals? I can give more information about or specific Filemaker system and current support person as needed. Thanks in advance
  23. Hi please can someone help me out, i want to download my database to send over to my colleuge however from my server console the download database option is greyed out - not giving me an option to do from there in my FMP , my save a copy is also greyed out. please can someone explain me why this is and how i can get my database offline. Thanks
  24. Printing PDF from iPad via PSOS

    I had a request to print PDFs from an iPad. In the past I created a bot that based on Sic Fried Rice's (if I'm not mistaken) technique would print a label on a label printer by triggering a script from the iPad. I would like to be able print without setting up a Bot, PHP or using a plugin. I got close but for some reason I'm stuck on the last bit and I'm sure other developers have done this before. So the process I came up with so far is: 1, I found a lightweight utility called SumatraPDF which I copied to the Doc folder on the Windows FM 14 server 2. I populated a global field with the batch file string to print the document (e.g. "C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Documents\sumatrapdf" "C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Documents\1.pdf" -print-to-default) 3. I created a print script for the iPad that runs a PSOS script that exports the global field to the documents folder and opens it So when running the script from the iPad I can see it creates the correct batch file on the server and I can click on it manually to run - it works Problem is it doesn't print when run from the iPad. Maybe 'open automatically' isn't supported on PSOS? I'm open to other ideas.... Dan Update: seems that it is unrelated to printing - the batch file just doesn't get run.
  25. Nickenich, Germany - (January 28th, 2016) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 6.0 for Mac OS X or Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for FileMaker Pro. As the leading database management solution for Windows, Mac, and the web, the FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 6.0 has been updated and now includes over 3500 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions: With the new version we got a couple of new DynaPDF functions. One is the new optimize commandto rebuild and repair PDF files. You can do that before archiving PDFs or before creating a PDF/A file. If you need to embed XML for your invoice PDFs, please check the ZUGFeRD examples. If you need to extract text from a PDF, you can now decide between DynaPDF.ExtractTextfor the whole document or DynaPDF.ExtractPageText for individual pages. Our JSON functions got a major update. We know can pass JSON around as both text and IDs. Using IDs can reduce the work the plugin does with parsing and speed up the process a lot. Please check the new functions JSON.Parse, JSON.CreateArrayRef and JSON.CreateObjectRef to create references and work with them. Do you have a LDAP server or one for Active Directory? We have new functions to query LDAP server. You can perform a search and get back results. You can add, modify, delete and rename entries. If you need to loopup an IPv4 or IPv6 for a domain name, you can use our new DNSLookup functions. The reverse way is possible by looking up domain name for an IP. For handling zip archives we got two new convenience functions: UnZipFile.ExtractFiles expands all files from an open archive while ZipFile.CompressFiles adds files to an archive. If you need more control, we still have individual functions for the tasks. If you are unfamiliar with SQL, but you like to use powerful commands in FileMaker, please check our new Insert/Update/Delete commands. FM.UpdateRecord lets you update a record without switching layout. With FM.InsertOrUpdateRecord the plugin either updates an existing record or inserts a new one. And with FM.DeleteRecordyou can delete a record without a relationship or changing layout. And those functions are available for multiple records, too. For the FileMaker development, we got a new contextual menu entry for most list controls in FileMaker. Copy the list of fields or tables as text. Our Syntax Coloring feature is now off by default and turns on when you open script editor. This way regular users don't run into it. We added html functions for clipboard, better hash, more FSEvents and path, new preferences and window, better listmatching and PDFKit functions. Finally we updated DynaPDF to version 3.0.48.143, libXL to version 3.6.5.2, openssl to version 1.0.2e, SQLAPI++ to version 4.1.7 and SQLite to version 3.10.2 See release notes for a complete list of changes. More details in the release notes. Please take the time to check our 350 example databases and check where you can use our plugin features in your solutions. System Requirements: * Mac OS X 10.6 or later, including OS X 10.11 * Windows XP and newer, including Windows 10 * FileMaker Pro 9 to 14 Pricing and Availability: MBS FileMaker Plugin 6.0 for Mac OS X or Windows is available directly from the MonkeyBread website with licenses starting at just $149 (USD). Not all functions are available in both versions - check specifications. A free trial download is also available.
