    FM Server 14 Conflicting with FM Server 11???

    staples57

      Asking the Experts...

      Has anyone experienced compatibility issues with FileMaker Server 14 conflicting with FileMaker Server 11?

       

      Servers:

      • FM Server 11 / Windows Server 2003 R2
      • FM Server 14 / Windows Server 2008 R2

       

      Clients:

      • FM 11 Advanced & FM 11 Pro Advanced
      • FM 14 Advanced & FM 14 Pro Advanced

       

      FM Server 11 has been fully operational and issue free until we spun up a new virtual machine and installed FM Server 14.

      Both FM servers are on the same network, but on different virtual machines.

      Once the FM Server 14 was installed, operational and FM 14 apps available on it, users began reporting that the FM Server 11 applications were no longer visible as available files when they attempted to Open a Remote File.

      ...FM 11 Open Remote: the host server IP address was listed, however the list Available Files was blank

       

      As soon as we shut down the new FM 14 Server, the issues with FM Server 11 went away.

      ...FM 11 Open Remote: the host server IP address was listed, a complete list of all Available Files was now available

       

       

      Any comments, suggestions or insights would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Cheers,

      Brad
