      Summary

      Infinite loop in server script causing server freeze

      Product

      FileMaker Server

      Version

      11.0.1.92

      Operating system version

      Windows Server 2003

      Description of the issue

      Server script with infinite loop never stop. It cann't be aborted in server console or with filemaker server restart. Only restart of Windows Server helped.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Run this script on the server:
      Set variable $list   .......empty
      Set variable $i=1

      loop
      exit loop if ValueCount($list)=$i
      Set variable $i=$i+1
      end loop

      Expected result

      I would expected server stop the script after time limit exceeded

      Actual result

      server scrip can't be stopped and running infinite

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Communication error with the server

      Workaround

      Repair exit loop condition.
      It is ok on Filemaker Server 12.
