Filemaker Server is now awake? Re-Redux

Question asked by StephenWonfor on Oct 4, 2015



Client is running OSX 10.9.5 on a 3.5Ghz 6 core MacPro.  FMServer

16 clients hosted over LAND and WAN.

Roughly every 45 to 60 days the clients are unable to connect to the server - 5 instances this year so far.

Via the admin console I can see the the server is running, db's are hosted, all is well.

We can ping the MacPro without issue.

Clients simply cannot connect - the files list in open remote for the server is empty.

Server log shows this at 12:39 am today - "Filemaker Server is now awake."

This machine has everything turned off that might cause network disconnects - energy saver allows no sleep, app nap off etc.


So I close the databases, turn off the FMServer service and reboot.  All well.


Anyone else see this sort of thing?
