    FileMaker Server built-in VERIFY INTEGRIY schedule fails to re-open all files



      FileMaker Server built-in VERIFY INTEGRIY schedule fails to re-open all files


      FileMaker Server



      Operating system version

      Windows 2012 Server 64 bit Standard

      Description of the issue

      since FMS13v2 until now FMS13v4 i experience that after a scheduled verify all databases run the server doesn't reopen all files. as soon as there was previously a client connecting and have been kicked off - after executing the verify script that file does't reopen.
      manually reopening doesn't do it either - error 38 occurs.
      restarting the server doesn't fix the situation - no files are showing .

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      run a verify schedule - before the schedule runs - connect clients to the verified files - when server prompts to kick off user - postpone closing until server disconnects
      - verification runs
      - file previously touched stays closed

      (this scenario might help to reproduce the issue- but the failure also can occur if no-one connected)

      Expected result

      files open after completion of integrity check (verify schedule)

      Actual result

      file stays closed - server restart make all setting disappear - only forced restart or reinstall gets things back - but sometimes auto-restart not working anymore - even flag is set - so manual server service start required

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      error 38

      Configuration information

      the server is a 8 core 2.4 GHz Intel Atom 2750 with 8 GB RAM and 2 TB Server Hard Drives running Windows 2012 Server 64 bit Standard -
      the load is not high - 2 files one 5 MB - the other 1.5 GB

      the cache is set to 2 GB

      concurrent users max 4 - the file is mostly used to sync - short sessions ..
      performing scripts on server ..


      force restarting the windows server actually resurrected all settings and files - normal restart didn't do it
