Hello Community,


I have a virtual machine Filemaker Server 17 ( 2016 server std — installed on a Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V.

I have an error,  when I try to configure a dataSource ODBC to connect to my FMServer => [20602- Can't create connection]

I have done this many times on previous versions of Filemaker Server
. The same operation with the same databases on Filemaker Server 14 (but not on a virtual machine) -> everything works well.

The attempts

  • re-install FM Server 17 (x2) and the FM driver ODBC
  • with firewall (port 2399 open and visible on the lan) / without firewall :-(

  • xDBC listener visible on the server
  • no anti-virus
with ou without Certificate

  • A new small new database with full access and good security configurations.
  • Read and read the documentation again


Is there somebody have FMS 17 on a virtual machine Win2016 Srv Std and can tell me if ODBC works on his machine ?


No more ideas :-(

and you


Thank's for reading.
