FMPRO SERVER ADVANCED 11 - CLOSES DATABASES - ALSO QUITS

Your post

 FMPRO SERVER ADVANCED 11, DEDICATED SERVER

WINDOWS 2003, SP2, INTEL 3.0 GHz, 3.0 GB RAM, 360 GB DRIVE, 30 GB USED

I've been supporting a FileMaker Server solution for the past month that was developed and ran well as far as I know for the past year or so.

In the past few days the server has quit once or closed a database.

The most recent ( this morning ) the server seemed to quit on its own without any other related event.

Previous to the above event, the server closed a critical database after reporting errors running import scripts using an ODBC connection :  ( I changed the name of the databases, external datasources and script names for privacy ).

I found it quite alarming # 1 to have the FMPRO Server just shut down on me this morning for no apparent reason.

# 2 Even when trying to complete a scripted ODBC import ( which has been running indefinitely without problems ) to have the server close a database and report that it was damaged is disturbing.

When I called FileMaker support they said I may be looking at a FMPRO Server reinstall which I prefer not doing.

Anyone want to chime in??  I've supported other FileMaker Server 11's at other locations. I haven't experienced outright closing of server and/or databases before.

 

Thanks
