    File corruption

      File corruption

      Your post

      Using FMP Server 8 on windows server 2003 Standard When I reboot the server it corrupts my FMP file and it can't be seen by the clients. If i then remove it and replaceit with a back up it will work. I have noticed that when I turn off services first then it seems to be okay. But I did not need to do that in the past.

      thanks in advance,

      David

          Do you use server console to close the files before you reboot the server?

          If not, you risk corrupting your files when you reboot. It's like a forced quit in FileMaker Pro. When the server re-opens the files after the reboot, it'll do a consistency check and then will fail to open the files if the consistency check discovers file damage. It's a roll of the dice each time you do this, you may have just been lucky before now or some latent file corruption has accumulated to a point where it now fails the consistency check each time this happens when it didn't before.
