Title

Moving/upgrading?

Your post

Hello all,

 

Probably quite an easy situation that we have here, but I just want to make sure we're following the right path. We're upgrading a number of our servers, including our Filemaker-server. We have only one custom app that uses FMS. The client will not be changed.

 

We now have:

- Windows server 2003 Standard edition 32 bit

- Filemaker Server 9

 

We'll be moving to:

-  Windows server 2008 R2 64 bit

 

Our software partner doesn't know for sure if FMS9 supports W2008R2 64 bit. He wants to sell us server 10, but we're a very small educational organisation, so the less we spend, the better it is. Is this a sales trick or does FMS9 really not support Windows 2008 and/or 64 bit??

 

So, my questions:

- Is FMS9 compatible with W2008R2 64 bit??

- Is there an easy guide how we can move it from one server to another?? The old server will be disconnected completely in a few days after move.

- If we do have to upgrade to FMS10, is there a quide for our situation?? So moving to other server and upgrading from FMS9 to FMS10??

 

 

Best regards,

ps. I'm no expert in FMS, I do have experience with other database-software and Windows.
