I'm looking for a training course for filemaker server deployment and administration for a new employee. Does anyone have any recommendations. They don't need FM developer training just yet and that's pretty much all I'm finding.
Have you had them read the FM Server documentation as a starting point? There's a Getting Started document, a Configuration (FMS 14) document and a Help document (PDFs). I'll lookup the links.
Edit to add some links:
Getting Started Guide
Here are some other Docs.
There's a PDF of the FMS 14 Security available here, but I don't find a link for a PDF of the FMS 15 Security Guide.
The help and FMS guide are excellent resources.
Training on the box and OS can be most beneficial. It's wise to know what other process may be running that could conflict with FMServer.
If ODBC or Web Publish are used, how these are set up & work on the server, what backups, what security software, what about emailing? So many things that rely on the server being ready to handle what FMS installs.

Thanks Dale! I'm looking for something a bit more formal as I don't have time to train them myself. There are a lot of different variables with regards to the server environment, web hosting, cwp, etc. that I don't feel are well covered in the FM documentation.
I agree Beverly. We are running ODBC to another server/sql db, server side scripts, CWP, a different PHP class, backups, etc. so there is a lot for this new person to learn!
