    Error deployment of FMS13 on Win Server 2008 R2 SP1

    Kool_Taz

      Hi,

       

      We have a Windows 2008 R2 SP1 that was running well FMS12.

       

      We try to install FMS13 and we have an error when the test happen.

       

      Test web server (http://127.0.0.1:80/fmi-test/test.xml): Error code = 500

       

      Anyone has this problem?

       

      Thank you for your help,

          Pierre:

           

          have you found resolution to this issue?  I have a similar error, but mine is "File not found"

           

          Test web server (http://10.10.11.71:80/fmi-test/test.xml): Error code = 404 

           

          the actual test.xml file is not present in the directory and I can't move forward setting up a two machine deployment with a web worker machine.

            Hi Pierre,

            I have the same problem; can you help me? Did you resolve this issue?

             

            FileMaker Server 13 installation on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

            The same error in test, during deployment:

            Test web server (http://127.0.0.1:80/fmi-test/test.xml): Error code = 500

             

            Note: I had another problem during installation:

            FileMaker Server installation didn't installed Microsoft Application Request Routing (ARR 2.5) and I installed it manually from

            here

            how indicated by TSFalcon (FileMaker Inc) in FM Forum:

              Same problem here; still seeking resolution to get FMS 13 working on this platform.

                I solved it by installing URL Rewrite

                 

                This should be another component of FileMaker Server has not been installed.

                In "FileMaker Server 13 getting started" you find:

                 

                Windows: Do not uninstall the following while FileMaker Server is installed:

                • IIS URL Rewrite Module
                • Microsoft Application Request Routing
                • Microsoft External Cache for IIS
                • Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable Package (x64)
                • Microsoft Web Farm Framework

                 

                These are necessary components for FileMaker Server. The installer would install them, but for an unknown cause, we hadn't this installation, so we had to install them manually. Some of them are installed by FileMaker Server installer, other by ARR installer. Verify which of them are missing.

                 

                After installing URL Rewrite, FileMaker Server 13 completed deploying and all seems to be ok.

                BUT THIS ISN'T THE END:

                After many work hours for resolving this problem, FMS 13 seems to be ok but I read about some interesting fixes in rev2 update, so I updated FMS. Well, updating went wrong and then FMS not working anymore.

                We were planning to install Windows Server 2012, so quickly I installed  Windows Server 2012 on a new Virtual machine (yes, I was working on a virtual machine, why not) and then I installed FileMaker Server, but I HAD THE SAME RESULT: the installation was not completed successfully; then I installed manually ARR and URL Rewrite, and now it's working.

                But I could not upgrade...

                 

                Some answer for this problem?

                Does anyone know the causes why FileMaker Server fails to install the components?

                I would also suggest to anyone involved in the FileMaker documentation to give indications on this issue.

                 

                Good FileMaker anyone

                  We solved our install problems by turning off the firewall. see,
