    FMS Restart vs power failure/start



      FMS Restart vs power failure/start

      Your post

                I'm far away from my home office now. For some time I've used No-IP to address my server when I'm away. I have FMS set to start automatically on restart. Two days ago I believe my place had a power failure or brown-out. Since then I haven't been able to connect. Today I had a friend go over to my place and, sure enough, the server machine was off. She restarted it and rebooted the Airport Extreme as well. No dice. My question: will FMS restart on its own in the circumstances described above? Or is this quite different than a proper Restart?

               under normal circumstances, FileMaker server will start after the machine restarts, serving You with its files..

               Since there was a power-failure, the files might have problems - and can't be opened by FMS. Best is, to install the last backup. Do You have a vnc (remote desktop, etc) connection to Your server?

               You can also try to open the files using a FM client a but I prefer the backup...
