Bizarre problem one morning last week:
Client machines could not open databases from the server.
Remote access not working to the server machine.
Directly on the server all seemed normal.
Opened the fm server admin - all databases running OK.
Thought, maybe there was a disk error on the server ?
Ran check disk - found one or two errors, but otherwise OK.
Restarted the server.
Opened again the fm server admin - all OK and databases again accessible from client machines.
All fine therefore, no restoration from backups needed - apparently.
But, the fm file states were back to the previous midday - all the work from the previous afternoon had gone.
Otherwise, the server and fm working normally and stable since that day last week.
HP Proliant gen 5 / fm server 11
What I do not understand is how the fm server could work normally the previous afternoon, stop the following morning and reset to the state as at the previous midday - all without any intervention.
Has anyone else seen this kind of event and /or can explain it ?
