Title

Moving FM7 server MAC databases to a windows FM Pro 11 server.

Your post

I have seven databases that I've FTP'd from a Apple x 10.5 server to a windows server, and I'm having no luck trying to open with multiple version of FM Pro.  I've been able to get repair to complete on several when running FM 8.5 against the database files.  The repair reduces the file size drastically, and when trying to open none of the accounts allowed access work.  I've even removed the password from the account that works on the MAC server, re-FTP'd to my local windows workstation, run the repair, and still get access denied when attempting to open the database. 

Would I be better served trying to use a MAC fileshare to pull these DB files to a windows workstation or server?  All the databases start and run fine from the MAC server.  Is there some other method of getting a local copy of these databases to the windows environment that I'm not aware of?   

 

Any recommendations are appreciated.
