I will also be posting this on FMForums, but thought I would try here first.
We have a very busy production server running FMSA9 on Windows Server 2003 (yeah, go tell it to our IT department) and twice this week users have lost the ability to acquire the server. What we see is this:
Users with no files open on the server cannot see the server.
Users with any file open on the server can see all the files on the server.
Users with any file open on the server can work as normal.
Admin can run the console remotely (but a bit slow).
Admin can RDC into the server normally.
Rebooting the server solves the problem, but this is happening during the middle of the day, with most users unaffected, so that's not a great solution.
Has anyone seen this before? I have a vague recollection of having a similar problem years ago, but can't recall if that was on 5.5 or 7 or what. Any hints appreciated.
