HI All


I have a client on mac with details below running FMS 12.0.4. Backups run ok every night but then when client gets in in the morning the FMS admin console gives the error saying the Filemaker server is no longer available and has to select the green icon at the top left to restart the database server. There appears to be nothing in the FMS logs either. Any ideas why the database server crashes or stops every night?
