Thank you for the post.
I previously responded to your similar post here:
I agree the documentation is clear on this subject. Additionally, I received confirmation from our Development Department, this is the expected behavior.
"Use a dedicated machine / system for FileMaker Server: FileMaker Server should be installed and run on a dedicated machine whose sole purpose is to be used as a database server.
FileMaker WebDirect Considerations
For best FileMaker WebDirect performance, FileMaker, Inc. recommends a two machine deployment - especially if the number of concurrent FileMaker WebDirect connections is seven (7) or greater. You can deploy FileMaker Server across two machines: the Web Publishing Engine, web server, and web server module on one machine and the Database Server on a second machine. This type of deployment separates all of the web publishing related components from the Database Server. Under most conditions, this type of configuration is the highest performing FileMaker Server deployment."
It is unfortunate! Although this is expected from FileMaker's stand point, I still stand by my claim that this is a bug, and totally unexpected as a user!
I would really like that filemaker could be installed with all its services in the same mac with server.app running and no conflicts.
What Goetch proposes I think is what a lot of Filemaker server user expect, especially with the increasing processing power of mac, you can take
better advantage of your equipment and budget..
Goetch and Rodrigo Jalaff:
I recommend that you enter this as a suggestion into our Feature Requests web form at:
The entries into this web form populate a database file hosted by Development and Product Management. Each entry is discussed and considered for possible implementation in a future release. Although I could copy your posts and paste them into the web form, there are a couple of questions asked that only you can answer.
