      ODBC error for single client to server

      Post

           Running FMSP12 on server 2008 and FMP12 on Windows 7. Every once and a while the ODBC import will fail on a random client and only a restart of the server will correct the issue. Strangely other clients can still import. I have tried dropping the user and restarting the client machine but the problem persists for the client machine until the server is rebooted. Is there a service I could restart instead of having to drop everyone out of FileMaker?

               You may find more responses by creating free account at https;//fmdev.filemaker.com/

               There are also 7 or 8 Filemaker groups at http://linkedin.com - some are specialized such as Filemaker Optimization.

               If that client signs on with another computer... realizing a random symptom is hard to diagnose.

               That user does monthly maintenance? Or has networking utilities installed that are unique to that computer?
               Is on the same router as the others?

                 It is not machine specific. I have had it fail on a few different machines. You can log onto another machine using the same user account and import with no issues. I realize I am probably not going to figure out a what is causing it I just wish I could 'restart' the ODBC on the server so I am not booting all my users for one computer. I have 25 desktop clients and around 20 Go clients so kicking them all out is kinda catastrophic :D.
