Product and version: FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.0.4 / FileMaker Server

OS and version: client Mac OS 10.10.5 / server Windows Server 2012 Standard

Hardware: client MacBook Pro 15" 2013 / server virtual machine


Description: I am able to access, via FMPA (both 14 and 13) > Open Remote, one file on a remote FileMaker Server 14 machine that has been removed via the admin console (moved to the Databases/Removed_by_FMS/Removed/ folder). The admin console does not display the file in the list of files in the Activity > Databases pane, but it is reflected in the total number of databases hosted as displayed on the Status pane. This is only the case for one particular file in the Removed_by_FMS folder; other files in that folder are not accessible. In FMPA Open Remote, I am able to see the file when authenticating to the server, and am also able to open it. I have not tried bouncing FMS yet to see if this resolves the issue, as this is a production server. Either way though, seems like a bug.
