We're deploying our new Filemaker servers and are running into some trouble.


Installation, deployment and uploading of our databases is going smoothly, the problems start when we open a database from our Filemaker Pro (Mac OS X) clients.

As soon as we open a layout with ESS fields (or go into ERD and edit an ESS occurance on the graph) the client hangs. Worse, after about a minute the database server stops (only server overview and log viewer available from the admin panel).


The server:

- Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard (64 bit)

- MySQL ODBC connector 5.1.11 (64 bit)


The clients opening the database are Filemaker Pro 12 and Filemaker Pro 12 Advanced running on OS X 10.6.8 and 10.7.4
