FM Server 10 on Windows Server 2008 HPC Edition

Your post



I have some problems with the installation of FileMaker Server 10 on a Windows Server HPC Edition. It's a Server 2008 version that runs in a virtual environment. The client's administrator, not us, told me that there are some known problems with activating the product (Server 2008 HPC), but that does NOT effect the performance of the server.

FM Server 10 installed without a problem and we have been using it for two months now.

But every once in a while, FileMaker Server does not respond anymore: there are no log entries anymore other than the last one saying that one of the bac-up schedules is running. Stopping the Database Server from the Console won't work: I get an error message saying that there was "an error stopping the database server" (uhuh).

Stopping the service FileMaker Server times out and since there are no new log messages and the service is "stopping" for minutes and minutes after that, the only thing that resolved it was a restart.


My questions:

- is FileMaker Server 10 supported on this version of Windows 2008 Server?

- is there anyone who knows a solution to the 'hanging' behavior?
