Restarting two FileMaker Servers (best practices).

Question asked by JavierDura on Feb 7, 2017

I have a FileMaker Server 15 installed on a MacMini. Progressive backups are scheduled to be made on an external disk.

Another MacMini is working as an stand-by server.

 

If, for some reason, I have to restart both servers, what should be the right sequence?

Assuming I have to close all open databases first, should I restart the main server first and then the stand-by server?

 

And, if both servers are off, should I turn on the main server first and the stand-by server or vice versa?

Or maybe it doesn´t matter...

 

Thanks.
