Update patches for Standby Server

Question asked by Jonathan Jeffery on Oct 19, 2015

Has anyone had any experience of applying patches/updates to a filemaker standby server? (e.g. upgrading from 14.0.1 to 14.0.2, etc)


The documentation states that both production server and standby server have to have the same version of FM server installed.


I'm tempted to run the update to the standby server and then the production server in rapid succession—do you think that this will run smoothly, or is there a big GOTCHA here? Will I, in fact, have to disconnect the standby server, update all round and then reconnect?


If a Filemaker engineer is reading this, perhaps you could add some documentation on this to the next edition of the 'FileMaker Server 14 Getting Started Guide'


Many thanks,
