How many users? Windows or Mac? Win version? FMP Server on what computer and OS?
Currently FMP is installed on all user's computers with a database file that is accessed by what applications using ODBC?
If all the users that need access have Filemaker, why not access the FMP Server with Filemaker?
5 users on Windows 7 Enterprise with SP1 and all current patches.
FileMaker Server to be installed on a Windows Server 2008 R2 VM on vSphere 5.0.
The database is linked as an attribute table to a file geodatabase (or soon an SDE geodatabase on Oracle) used in ESRI ArcGIS and DAT/EM Summit Evolution.
The geospatial editing is done in ArcGIS and Summit Evolution, and the users need to edit the attributes as part of that process. So, I guess what I'm asking is "Can the users access the database by opening it from FileMaker Server in FileMaker Pro, then use ODBC locally between FileMaker Pro and the 3rd party application to allow the 3rd party application to edit the database?"
