FileMaker Server 13 Doesn't Close Databases.


FileMaker Server



Operating system version

OS 10.9

Description of the issue

FileMaker Server does not close databases and host files that are removed from the server.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Click a file to close.
2. Click the close button.

1. Stop FileMaker Server.
2. Manually delete the database from the Databases folder.
3. Restart the entire server (not just FileMaker Server)

Expected result

Database should be closed.
Database should be removed from being hosted.

Actual result

Database is still open.
Database cannot be found on the server in either the Databases or Removed folder, yet FileMaker Pro clients can still open the files and use them!

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

The attached uploaded image shows FileMaker Server on the left and the databases that are being hosted. The middle image shows a FileMaker Pro client accessing the server with 5 database files that can be accessed that are NOT supposed to be hosted. The right image shows the Databases and Removed folders - the databases are no longer on the server and should NOT be hosted.
