FMS 10 Adv - Windows Server 2008 - Logins fail every few days
I have a new installation of FMS 10.2.2.206 Advanced on Windows Server 2008 Enterprise running in a VM and have trouble every few days where nobody is able to login to any file until the FileMaker Service is killed and restarted.
The installation is a full install with WPE using IIS on the same server. Everything seems fine for a few days and then the login failures occur on all files. The pattern has repeated several times over the last couple of weeks. I am able to connect via the console application and shut down the WPE but the database server will not shutdown, even trying to stop the service via the Services control panel. I have to kill three services via task manager to get it stopped. (fmserver.exe, fmservicewrapper.exe and fmshelper.exe) After restarting the FileMaker Service, everything comes back normal.
When in the error condition, I receive the following email notification every hour:
FileMaker Server 10.0.2.206 on ALFM1 reported the following event:
Mon Feb 08 16:48:58 EST 2010 FMS ERROR wpe1
Some problems were detected in the WPE COMPONENT: COMPONENT IS NOT RESPONDING.
I first thought it was related to having WPE running without a file being open but having a file open via WPE has not made any difference. I have all (all two that is) files in a directory at the root of the server (C:\Databases) and no files in the default Data directory of the FMSever program tree.
I hope I might have supplied enough information to make some sense out this trouble. As is, the server certainly can not go into production.
Thanks for your time.
