I am using the peer-to-peer sharing. Can I install and run FileMaker Server on the same machine that is currently using the peer-to-peer setup until I am comfortable with FM Server? Or do I have to choose one or the other.
You can't have both peer-to-peer and FMS happening at the same time. But don't horse around: install and use FMS; if you don't like it, uninstall and go back to what you had—but I'll bet you don't!
assuming You are rnning a separate machine as host (peer2peer), just stop that host-client, install FMS - and it's done.
FMS will create a schedule for You (automatic backup), will run as a service (no user needs to be logged in), etc
-> much more comfort, speed & security
But: I would not run FMS for pruduction use on my workstation or on my laptop
Thank you for the reply.
I deployed FileMaker Server 15 over the holiday weekend and everything is running perfectly. FM Server is awesome.
