Pausing on FileMaker Server temporarily stops access to one or more open databases with Normal status. Connected clients can read data from the database while it is paused, but cannot modify the database until the database is resumed. For example, you can pause a database and safely use the operating system to make a copy of the file.


I'm seeing several occasions where several files on FMS 15.0.1 are being paused, mostly overnight, without my making that happen via the Admin Console. As client logins (with FMPA v15) do not proceed beyond entering credentials, we cannot even read any data.


Is this an indication of some trouble brewing with any of the hosted files??

Or, is there some problem with the installation of FMS 15 on this machine?

( 8 core 2008 MacPro with OS X 10.11.6 & 14 GB RAM, OS & FMS installed on 1 TB 3.5" HD)
