what version FMS?
My 1st suggestion would be to re-install FMServer
FM12, not sure which update version
I'm having a similar issue with FMS 12 which has the V2 update applied. I've posted a request for info here:
and am hoping for a response next week.
My backups are proceeding OK and if I visit the Admin Console the status quickly changes from Paused to Normal, whereupon I can open the served files on client work stations.
My issues vanished once I visited the Energy Saver Preferences and changed the Computer sleep setting from "15 minutes" to "Never" -- obviously I should have followed that advice in the Setup Guide. Mea culpa!
