[X-posted to Filemaker Users on Facebook] Wondering if anyone is running FMS17 and experiencing FMSE hangup issues. We took an FMS 15 (Windows Server 2012) install to FMS16 (Windows Server 2016) and are getting a lot of bogged down scripts on the server side. We see numerous "ghost" clients still connected - server side routines still trying to execute. The serverside routines run in the 10 pm to 6 am time frame. This install has 5 users at most presently but may grow in the future if we can stabilize it. We also setup an hourly status check script - simply go to a log table and create a new record. These we monitor to see when the last run was. We are getting gaps - sometimes 2 or 3 hours - then the FMSE seems to run again. Another install we have have is FMS 14 (Windows Server 2012) that has 30+ server side routines that run without issue. Just wondering if FMS17 might cure our FMS16 install. I have found references to FMSE failures going back to 2015. There are many suggestions as to fixes but nothing that has been reported as definitive. Wondering if casting some chicken bones might help? ;-)
