    SBS and FileMaker Server



      SBS and FileMaker Server

      Description of the issue

      While i'm on a bug reporting roll I suppose I may as well submit this one again... Microsoft Small Business Server is not a supported operating system for running FileMaker Server. Everyone knows that and is aware of the issues. In spite of that FileMaker Server installer will happily install on SBS. It should stop the installation and report that the operating system is not supported and Server can't be installed. So it's a bug in the installer. We've found a number of clients have gone ahead on their own and installed on SBS, then we have to deal with the consequent issues. regardsIan

          You may know this already, but other users report that they can use SBS once they have removed Sharepoint from the server.


          I agree that better documentation on this in the knowledge base, installer documentation and in the installer app would be very helpful.
