#1: 9.0v3 server on Mac OSX 10.5.2 problem!

Posted on 2008-04-13 02:12:45 by Steve Maser

OK -- the 9.0v3 server installer is supposed to work on Mac OSX 10.5.x

So, I uninstalled my previous 9.0v3 server (running under 10.4.11) --
upgraded my box to 10.5.2 and then reinstalled 9.0v3 server.


9.0v3 server opened all my databases. Fine.

However, the *backup* schedule is not seeing my "backups" directory --
the exact same *default* directory -- that was working under
10.4.11/FMS 9.0v3

The path is exactly the same as before:

filemac:/Server HD/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Backups/

But the schedule app keeps saying this is "not a valid path".

The folder has the exact same permissions as does the "databases"
folder which is -- correctly -- opening my databases:

drwxrwxr-x 7 fmserver fmsadmin 238 Apr 12 19:31 .
drwxrwxr-x 20 fmserver fmsadmin 680 Apr 12 18:55 ..
-rw-rw-r--@ 1 fmserver fmsadmin 6148 Apr 12 20:10 .DS_Store
drwxrwxr-x@ 3 fmserver fmsadmin 102 Apr 12 20:10 Backups
drwxrwxr-x 35 fmserver fmsadmin 1190 Apr 12 19:22 Databases
drwxrwxr-x 2 fmserver fmsadmin 68 Jan 17 04:33 Scripts
drwxrwxr-x 2 fmserver fmsadmin 68 Apr 12 19:31 Test



Even if I create the "Test" directory above -- it's not saying that's a
valid path, either.

Anybody else seeing this? Suggestions?

Something about running this on 10.5.2 that's the issue?

Try getting rid of the spaces in your path. Spaces in filepaths are
to be avoided. They're just problems waiting to happen.

hope this helps

Tried this -- didn't help. Considering the default name for a hard
disk is "Macintosh HD" -- it *should* work.

I've uninstalled the server app about a dozen times.


Now I'm at the point where if I *restart* the computer, I can log into
the FMS admin app, but it reports that the server isn't running (when
it clearly is.)

Meaning the server app only works after the initial install (at which
point I can configure the server to my heart's content.)

Any subsequent restarts of the computer -- the *services* run --
including the edits I've made to the "daily" backup schedule (just
changing the time) -- but I can't make any further modifications.


Off to call tech support, it seems...

Unfortunately Macs are not my specialty, sorry. All I can suggest is,
make sure that FM Server is loaded into memory and active. In the
Windows version, one can start the admin utility without FM Server
running at all. One must start the admin utility, THEN connect to FM
Server.

hope this helps

So, I finally *did* resolve this....

I uninstalled/reinstalled/rebooted a number of times until I got to the
point where I had once been under 10.4.11 -- if I *install* the server,
I could log into the admin app and modify the server to my hearts
content.

But if I then *rebooted* the server, I could log into the admin app,
but trying to do anything would say (basically) "the server isn't
running" -- when, of course, it was...


I realized I hadn't installed the "SecurityUpdate 2008-002" on my
xserve.

I installed that and rebooted again and then the admin app started to
work as expected.

Go figure. I'm thinking the Mac java admin app must have some
problems that makes it overly sensitive or something...

I'm glad you got it worked out. I can't believe how many complaints
I've heard about the latest Mac OS X releases. Seems like they've had
more issues with Leopard than all the previous versions combined. I
hope that isn't a harbinger of things to come from Apple ...

I love FileMaker because it's cross-platform. And I love Macs, from
an engineering standpoint a Mac is a vastly superior machine to a PC.
The 640K bottleneck issue alone proves that. But something like 90+
percent of all the computers on the Earth run some version of Windows,
so as a developer it's clear to me what OS I need to be running. I
know I'll catch hell for saying that from some folks -- an old geezer
client of mine once said to me: "A Mac isn't a computer, it's a
religion." :)
