Our new WinS2012r2 FMS15 server is running into the false negative issue while testing before deployment.

Anyone else have experience with this issue?


"If FileMaker Pro's consistency check does not detect any errors, you may have run into FileMaker Server's false negative consistency check scenario.  This is a known issue confirmed by FileMaker, Inc."


For backup scripting and speed testing purposes we have several different copies of an identical large file, a straight conversion from 11 that will be tossed. A couple times this past week it logged consistency check errors during backup. Did not get any errors when hosting a similar set from C drive, so I wonder if RAID/D drive is more touchy. Backups go to E drive.
