      Databases Not Opening Automatically when FileMaker Pro Server Starts

      Your post

      Have FMS 10v2 installed on MacOS 10.6.2 Server.  Only the files in the default "/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Databases" are auto opening when the server is started.  An additional default folder is defined on another internal hard drive of the server.  These databases show up in the server's list of databases but always start up in a "Closed" status.  I need them to automatically open when the server starts.  This used to work and now it doesn't.  Does Snow Leopard have something to do with this?  Any ideas?

          Thank you for your post.

           

          Since this used to work, something has changed.

           

          Once the server has started, are you able to open ALL files that are listed as Closed?

           

          If you move ALL the files from the additional default folder to the primary default folder, do the files open automatically?

           

          Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling FileMaker Server?

           

          If you can let me know what troubleshooting steps you have taken, it may help narrow down possible causes.
