Filemaker 13 Server paused files still accessible


FileMaker Server


Operating system version

Windows 2008 R2

Description of the issue

New, clean install of Windows and FMS, no errors.
All elements installed.
Server working fine.
When pausing the databases in the console they are still accessible (and seen in 'open-remote')from both FM Pro 12 and 13, locally and over the LAN.

Steps to reproduce the problem

- Install Server 2008 R2
- Install FMS 13 - all options(Web, ODBC etc..)
- Copy FMP12 directory from 12 server over (un-modified)
- Define a secondary DB directory
- Open DBs
- Pause DBs via console

Expected result

DBs shouldn't show up when using open-remote and shouldn't open.

Actual result

They do.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear


Configuration information

FMS 12 server still active on LAN on a separate server.

Pausing then un-pausing made no difference.
Rebooting didn't help either.
