    Error 627 "Unable to open file" after upload



      Error 627 "Unable to open file" after upload


      FileMaker Server


      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.8.4

      Description of the issue

      When a file is too large, the automatic opening after upload with Admin Console doesn't work (even the file isn't corrupted).

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      STEP 1
      Create a brand new file with one table and two fields : 'Name' and 'Photo'.

      STEP 2
      Define 'Photo' as a Container.

      STEP 3
      Import a large picture folder (at least 1.5 Go) using the following command :
      File > Import Records > Folder…
      Do not import references but the files themselves. It is a size question ;-)

      STEP 4
      Using Admin Console and according command, upload your file on FileMaker Server 12, with automatic opening enabled.

      Expected result

      Admin Console upload the file correctly and FileMaker Server opens it automatically.

      Actual result

      Admin Console upload the file correctly but FileMaker Server cannot open it.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      On the log viewer, you can see a #627 warning (see screenshot below).
