      Running FMServer 12.4 on a team member's workstation

           Hi FileMaker Community -

           We have been working on a FileMaker 12 solution for inventory and event management, it's going well and we are planning to deploy soon.  Over time, we will probably manage over 100,000 records with some information in container fields.  We will be using FileMaker Server Standard 12.4, and accessing our databases with FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go.  One suggestion is that we run FMServer on a team member's workstation.  It's a Windows7Pro machine with i5 processor and 4Gb RAM.

           We have read the warnings about this option in the install guide, but we are wondering: has anyone in the forum tried it?  It would be great to hear from someone with practical experience in this scenario.

           Thanks very much in advance for any discussion or suggestions!
