Can someone provide me the steps of moving the File Maker Pro 12 Server from Mac OS X 10.8.5 to Windows Server 2016, should I need to purchase a license for Windows Server? What are the steps?
What version of FileMaker Server do you have now? You said '12', but you also said 'Pro'. Or are you sharing with FileMaker Pro 12?
There were two versions of Filemaker Server 12. The specifications (including Operating System) are here:
System Requirements for FileMaker Server 12 and FileMaker Server 12 Advanced
Thanks for getting back. Sorry I am completely new to filemaker and just helping someone move the data to new server.
We have a Mac Mini acting as a server that is running Filemaker Server 12, all the mac desktop clients have Filemaker Pro 12, they all connect to the Mac Mini server, I need to replace the Mac Mini server with a windows server 2016 standard. How do I go about migrating the data. Will installng windows version of Filemaker Server 12 work on Server 2016 ?
The chart on the link will tell you what OS is compatible with FMServer 12. It is generally not recommended to step outside the specs.
Yes, you would need the installer for Windows version of FMServer 12. If you are licensed, you may be able to contact sales and get a new download link.
Keep in mind:
