I have a very old script (fmp 10?) that creates User Accounts and assigns Privilege Sets. The users are then able to Login via WebDirect (primarily). The Add Account function is used with the following parameters:
Add Account [ Account Name: _Parent Data::Parent1_Email_TrimAndRemoveReturns; Password: _Parent Data::
Parent1_WebPassword; Privilege Set: Web_User ]
[ Expire password ]
The Password is temporary (for first login only) that is randomly generated via Custom Function. Users are required to change their password on first login.
The account is created but for some reason the user cannot Login via Webdirect or Client (Invalid Account/Password). I checked the privilege sets and they all check out. I can manually change the password form the Security Console and require a new password - and everything works as expected. Again this script worked for years - we typically only create accounts in the fall - so if there has been a major security update or some other new requirement that would throw a wrench in the works - well, hoping you all can help me out.
Thank you in advance!

I added security to limit the DataAPI user from accessing certain records, with the limited option. I tested this while running these files on my HD no server. Worked like a charm. After moving the files to FMServer the DataAPI account can access all record in the table all of a sudden.
Any thoughts as to why this is happening?
Hi, I have fm 14 server running on a mac mini. I have recently upgraded to FM16 running Mojave on 2 x local macs. We started with one license, where only one of us could use FM at a time (as we knew), I have since bought another copy and and reinstalled FM16 on the local mac with the new serial number but the server still seems to think we are using the same copy?? and we are getting the attached error. I have completely uninstalled FM locally but still does not work. I have asked my FM guy, as well as 2 or 3 other people but everyone seems to be stumped?? Is there any way of clearer the cache which may be holding this old information? Any help would be much appreciated.
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 previous posts on this issue. I do not think there can be any hardware issue, since the server is hosted with Amazon and both server and client are on an internal network. To be sure I have filed a support request with Amazon as well.
The strange thing is that the error message sometimes occurs within a minute and then FMP freezes on the user while they are still working in the FM app. It is my understanding that error 10 occurs if the client does not respond to the server ping for 2 pings, so time out for this error should be 125 seconds.
These servers have been running without this issue for a long time now. Any idea why this has suddenly changed and why the error message errors while tghe users is using the FM app?

My production Filemaker Server 14 running on Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (Not Mac OS X Server) has been running fine for a year since I last installed the Thawte SSL Certificate. After renewing the certifate this year, I've tried various different methods of importing the new certificate, which came with an intermediate certificate, but I can't seem to get the intermediate certificate installed. I've been mostly using something like:
sudo fmsadmin certificate import --keyfile /Users/richardfincher/Desktop/GBROOMX36-4X/private.key /Users/richardfincher//Desktop/GBROOMX36-4X/ssl_certificate.crt
I've also tried importing it through the web control panel. It was necessary to remove the old private key thus.:
sudo rm /Library/FileMaker\ Server/CStore/serverKey.pem
After it is (apparently) installed, I usually restart with :
sudo fmsadmin restart adminserver
although a few times I have rebooted the server (not a VM)
Any thoughts welcome....
Oh, one thing is, a year ago it might have been still on Mac OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion, which was the previous OS before I upgraded it.
