Hi, can anyone please advise me if windows server 2012r2 is suitable as the server os? I have previously installed WS2012 Essentials only to find out that it is impossible to use FileMaker server 13 on it.
I really need to get this right this time as it looks like I have wasted time and money with essentials. I am aware that the recommended software is WS2008R2 and WS2012 Standard. If anyone can give me a few pointers I would be grateful.
The main issues seem to be releasing ports 80 & 443, which Essentials is unable to do.
FMS13 runs fine on W2012 Standard. I would not use anything but what is recommended to make sure you stay within support parameters.
