Summary

Peer to peer sharig not working - apparently multiple copies of database on network

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.03

Operating system version

Windows 7 with Windows Server

Description of the issue

We have a Filemaker database stored on a windows server, accessed by 4 windows 7 computers running Filemaker 12.03.  Peer-to-peer file sharing in FileMaker Pro isn't working properly, there appear to be local copies of the file.

There are no local copies of the database n any network computer.

Anyone know what is going on?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Typical problem - open file (apparently on server) on "host" computer (1) then open the same file on another computer (2) in remote access.  All is fine - changes update instantly over network.  If the original host (1) is off network and I open the file (apparently on the sever) on computer (2), I see the file pre-changes i.e not the same file.

Expected result

The file on the server, viewed on any computer on the network should be the same.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None

Workaround

If one host is used consistently it works.  This isn't practical, as all the PCs are laptops used in/out of office.
