Filemaker Server Tests failing after update to 3.2.1

Hi folks!

After updating to the newest version 3.2.1 my Filemaker Server Test is failing. The funny thing is, that the preview of the service works and succeeds! But the regular service every 5 minutes fails.

What can I do to bring this to work again?

Thanks and best,

Jo-Chen

If the Preview works and the test fails, that suggests to me that there's a filter that is causing the failure.

What is the error you get when checking the test (as seen in the Failures log)? If it's a filter, that'd indicate what.

Hi David,

in fact, I have no filter set up. I do not even know what a filter exactly makes and how to use it ... Sorry!

*hah* the error message says "success" ;-) hmmmm .... changed the wording in the new version somehow?! The "wrong" messages are since 12:06 o'clock.

Re: Filemaker Server Tests failing after update to 3.2.1

You add filters on the Filters page of the Edit Test window. They can be used to detect changes or override output of tests. If you upgraded from version 2, you may have a filter from the upgrade.

You could email me screenshots of your Edit Test window and the Failures log, and I could investigate further.

Based on the screenshots, this seems to be a localization issue. The "Success" custom result value is being treated as a failure in the German edition, but is fine in English. The German localizer has been notified.

I am the German localizer for Simon and will check this localization issue now. I'm sure we can fix this very quickly.

This issue should be fixed in version 3.3b1, released just now. Please let me know if not.
