Invalid Backup Folder or Backup Path on Windows 2008 Server with Filemaker Server 10 or 11 Advanced
This problem has been annoying me for awhile and maybe it is just a known bug or there is a real way to permanently to deal with it. Periodically, the backup folders become invalid. Fortunately, the problem does not block the backups from progressing, but today for example, I wanted to change the time at which the daily backup was made. The backup folder was being shown as invalid and I could not edit the backup schedule to change the backup time.
If I restart the server, it works fine again, probably for a few weeks or so. I have noticed the problem on both our Filemaker 11 and 10 server. Even if I set up a backup folder that everyone has full rights to, the filemaker schedule editor will not see it as valid. I have used Filemaker 6,7,and 8 servers on the Mac without this problem. I'll probably try this on a Mac soon, to see if the problem exists there as well on Server 11.
Filemaker Product Verison 10.0.1.1 (file version 10.0.1.51) running on Windows Server 208 Standard Version 6 (Build 6002: Service Pack2)
Filemaker Product Verison 220.127.116.11 (file version 18.104.22.168) running on Windows Server 208 Enterprise Version 6 (Build 6002: Service Pack2)
I am guessing there is a Patch I am missing, but any help would be appreciated since I would rather not restart a server simply to change a backup schedule.
