Our development work is almost exclusively done in the Wndows environment and it is 15 years since I have had much to do with Macs.
However the need to set up an economical server solution for a client, serving 15 databases to 12 Users has made me have a closer look at the Mac Mini.
Currently the FMPro 11 files are served ond an aging Windows 2003 sever than is doing other things as well. I wish to set the Mini up as a dedicated FM server.
I need some Mac guru advice before I proceed further. Filemaker 12 is a horror in the Windows environment at the moment and I would prefer to keep everything in 11 until Filemaker fixes the problems.
My question - will Filemaker 11 server work OK on the latest Mac Mini Server. If so will I have problems obtaining a Mac VLA copy of Filemaker Server to apply their existing Licence to. I have never had need to download a Mac Server VLA master in the past and hope I have not missed the boat.
The Mac Mini appears to be amazing value. The whole package for not much more than a Windows Server Licence!
Thanks for your Help
