FileMaker's advice is re-install the server, but to manually recreate all the administrator groups, backup schedules, etc. is huge undertaking
Are they telling you to recreate them manually? If not you can use the console to save the settings and import it after the reinstall.
Hi Joe: Sorry to hear that you and your clients are having these issues. Can you try the following?
- Since no other users are reporting problems, it seems possible that this particular client ran out of disk space (the client, not the server). Double-check that the client machine has enough disk space. If that is not the issue, try switching from interactive containers to non-interactive containers (Inspector).
- If #1 doesn't help, then try switching the database in question from permanent thumbnail cache to temporary thumbnail cache (File > Manage > Containers), and closing/reopening the database using the FMS Admin Console.
- If neither of the above helps, try emptying the permanent thumbnail cache on the server located at "FileMaker Server/Data/Caches/FileMaker/ContainerCache".
Please let us know which, if any, of those steps resolves the issue for you. Thanks!
