I have databases that are linked together on the server. When i go into the data manager on an advanced copy I will get this error for the databases i am linked to.


"Database is currently in use and could not be opened. If the file is shared, you can use the Open Remote command to open the file on the network. (if you've opened the file before, check the Open Recent Menu.)"


I started getting this message after i updated to filemaker server 12, Advanced 12 and Pro 12. I have ran recoveries, and rebuilt databases from the ground up for many but it doesn't seem to be fixing the problem.Has anyone had this problem before or know how to fix it? This is driving me nuts.


I have just added a word file with some screen shots and description of the problem.
