I have a client running FMS 11 on his Windows server, but wants to upgrade to Windows server 2016
Does anybody knows if FMS 11 can be installed on Windows server 2016?
FMS 11 wants a 2008 Windows server and corresponding Java versions. We tried a night long to get it running under 2012, it finally did run, but the way to get this was far beyond 'easy'. Worst of all, it did not run stable. Therefore, I don't recommend it. 2008 should be ok until 2020, so that's the way to go - IMHO. You get time to migrate, but as long as You don't run IWP, I recommend to update to the current version of FMS and clients. Conversion from .fp7 to .fmp12is really smooth, easy
it's not supported or tested on Windows Server 2016. In fact it is no longer supported at all.
Officially, FMS 11 is not supported on either Windows server 2012 or 2016.
Upgrading the FileMaker and FileMaker Server environments would be a good idea. 11 hasn't been officially supported since 2015.
Thank you Markus!
I'll talk to my client to move to FMP17
