Your eyes are just fine. I have seen it too.
I don’t have an answer as to why it is only half filled.
But as you, I wait for an answer. Can go clients access the db in question?
Fms12_help talks of full bullet = access and the absence of full bullet = no access, but I see don’t a mention of what half bullet =.
My understanding of the half bullet means the database is accessible with FM Pro, but not from FM Go.
On my server all databases have a full bullet but one. The one database in question is a Chat database that relies on a webviewer with custom HTML which is most likely why it is not compatible.
There is nothing in the help file or that i could find online to confirm / deny, just an observation that i've made on my server.
the sad thing is: the databases in question are NOT accessible on FM Pro…
There must be some configuration in these files that does this, ODBC access works BTW…
Any help is appreciated…
PS: I am sick and tired of this upgrading nightmare… (every single time FM Server is updated something goes wrong)
I assume you verified that the Bonjour service is running. The reason I mention this, is that on my server it got turned off during the upgrade. Setting it back to start automatically solved the problem.
Do you get any type of message when trying to access from FMP?
No, the databases simply do not show, there are other databases served fine... (Open remote... works with certain DBs)
Dumb question: By any chance, do these databases have the "Don't display in Open Remote File dialog" checkbox selected under Sharing?
Tim (and all) wasn't there another thread about this? I thought the 'answer' was that the sharing was ON, but the "don't show in remote" was also selected (not exact text). So that the database would not show up in the remote selection list, or something like that. Can you check if that's the case?
That is not the can on the database im having issues with.
Under sharing, Network Sharing is turned OFF and the option to "dont show in remote" is unselected and greyed out.
You won't see it if the database is on the server. Pull it down (from backup or whatever) and open a local copy, then see if it's checked.
That was it, after pulling down from server the database was not shared but had the option to not show in remote checked. Not sure how it got checked.
I re-uploaded to server and how i have a full bullet.
user14629 - Download the file from the server, open locally and you'll probably find the same.
Would be nice if FileMaker would add a note about this in their help file.
