Server busy error message

Using FM15.0.4 on Windows 10 and files hosted via internal network on Windows Server 2012.



For our internal company sales dashboard, we have a file with just two layouts.  One is a series of portals showing business written, and the second layout includes a webviewer that shows the call stats and graphs from our call server.  The call server requires a login the first time it is stared.


There is one looping script, which runs at file start up that switches from one layout the other every 20 seconds.


Occasionally, when started the file starts, and the first switch to the call logs layout happens (which requires the login) we get a message saying:


"Server Busy


This action cannot be completed because the other programme is busy.  Choose "Switch To" to activate the busy program and correct the problem.


Switch To          Retry      Cancel



Clicking Switch To    or Retry does nothing other than make the dialogue reappear and Cancel is greyed out.


The only way to resolve this is to force quit FileMaker using ctrl+alt+del and closing the programme.


Has anybody come across this before and are there any suggestions you can make?
