Symphony Server Manager


User Guide

Symphony Server Manager will track all the information required to manage any number of FileMaker servers, web servers, and SSL certificates. But it is not just a static information storage app. Its interactive power will retrieve all relevant information which the server’s API will provide.

Symphony may retrieve this information from a server:

  • Server name
  • Exact server version
  • Running status
  • FileMaker license details
  • SSL certificate details
  • List of hosted files
  • List of connected users
  • Database file location paths and backup folder paths
  • And more

The Servers detail screen:

Select "FileMaker Server" type to display FileMaker specific details.
The left half of the details screen is used to track type of server, either "FileMaker Server" or "Web," with more details coming soon for web servers.

The SSL Certificates screen:

Record all information required for SSL certificates. Use the container fields to store all the certificate files:

  • The Server Request file
  • The Private Key file
  • The Signed Certificate file
  • The Intermediate Certificate file
There’s also a place to store the Private Key Password and ability to auto- generate a random password.
