Server 7.0v2 released

Recommended Posts

Anyone know where the docs are that tell us what was updated / patched?

They are not inside of the zip nor could I find them on the website.

Thanks.

As of right now, Tuesday October 26, 2004, 12:26PM EST the Mac version of the Server 7 update has been pulled from Filemaker's website. I had tried to install the update yesterday on a test server machine I'm using but the installer program displayed unintelligible text so rather than proceed I cancelled the install. I reported the problem to Filemaker. Hopefully it's something minor and they'll re-release the update soon.

I don't know all the changes that it makes but I do know that they made some major changes to the external authentication. It now works like it should! The documents have to be somewhere because I was talking to tech support yesterday and he was reading a list of the fixes. Maybe it is only an internal document though.

Don't know if it is just a coincedence, but after I installed the update, I no longer can launch my web sharing in OSX. It just says it is starting but never does.

Very frustrating.

How about that!

Among the changes are support for UPN and UNC syntax, domain groups within local groups, and removing the "Log on as service" requirements for Accounts that are not domain members.

Lots of good stuff.

Another quick q.

Where do we submit bugs online, cannot find it on the fm website??. It seems that this version also has a problem with odbc_exec and odbc_do. I have tried this on mySQL and now on fmsa7v2 again with same version of php and mySQL odbc returns the data whereas the filemaker odbc is bugy.

And, for us here, upgrading to 7.0v2 fixed our ODBC 2306 tcp/ip connection refused error. Hallelujah!

"I thought that 2399 was the ODBC port? "

it is

2306 is the SequeLink Error # we were getting when attempting establish the ODBC connection to the server.

But where did you get that information? I need to see a list of what has changed in this version. The readme file has nothing in it but installation instructions.

Beware: The Server 7.0v2 updater failed for me several times (even though the installer said "Success").

To get the update to stick, I had to make a backup copy of my data, then deleting the the FileMaker Server folders (in both /Applications and /Library), and reinstalling 7.0 from the CD-ROM. After this, the updater worked.

You can see if your update worked in the Admin console, it will say either 7.0v1 or 7.0v2.
