      Filemaker server on a Virtual Server

      Your post

      Hi All,

       

      Recently our company decdied to put a bunch of our "smaller" servers onto on big machine. This means that our FMS is now running on a virtual server. Ever since this happend, we have experienced 3 FMS crashes. Does anyone know any reasons/solutions for this?

       

      Thanks

          You can have FMS on a virtual machine but it obvious has some more caveats that are no longer under your control. Network settings such as teaming duals NIC can sometimes lead to issues.

           

          However, the first thing I would check to to make sure that none of your served file are being actively scanned for viruses as well as live backup processes etc. This will inevitably lead to corruption and crashes.
