      FM 10 server requirements

      Your post

      According to the documentation, FM 10 does not list Windows Server 2008 R2 as a possible install OS. Possibly due to the fact that it was released after. FM 11 does show Windows Server 2008 R2.


      Has anyone installed FM 10 on Windows Server 2008 R2 (IIS 7.5). Being that OS is 64-bit only, wasn't sure if FM 10 had issues or not.

          Just checked the knowledge base article: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/7152/kw/system%20requirements

          We have server 10 running on Server 2008 and I remembered checking this info when we were selecting a new server to install it on.

          Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition SP1

          is listed. R2, a later update is not, but we've been keeping updated and aside from the annoying "deaf server" bug that is still with us, has run quite normally. We are planning to down grade this system to a "vitual" 2003 release as we have an indentical install on a 2003 edition that has never once gone 'deaf' as a test to see if it makes a difference.

          Plan to post back to the forum what we find out after we've made the change and run it for a while...
