    Restarting two FileMaker Servers (best practices).

    JavierDura

      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.
