 Filemaker Server 5.5
Hello
I am having some trouble with Filemaker Server 5.5.  The problem is
that you can only have 125 hosted files on the server.  I need to have
more.  Does anyone know if that is possible.  If not, is it possible
to run two filemker servers on the same pc.

With thanks
Ester

Why that many?  Surely you could thin that down a little??  125 is quite
excessive...

Even if you could, which I greatly doubt, the performance would be so
terrible that it would not be worth the effort. FMS is very chatty, and it
cannot bind to more than one NIC. That means you would have to bind both
copies to the same NIC, which would probably overwhelm the controller.

There have been reports of  successfull hosting from more than one server,
which ought not to be too difficult, so long as all the files for any one
solution were held on their own box.

But I also think you are begging a larger question-- Is Filemaker the best
platform for your project? It is aimed at the small workgroup,
sub-enterprise department, and it's hard to imagine a scenario that requires
more than 125 files for one solution.

Perhaps you can describe your project a bit.

It is not possible to have more than 125 files open at once.

Technically, maybe. In reality, no. Get another machine to
run another copy of FM Server. Is this one solution or
multiple solutions? I only ask as we currently run 2 FM Server
machines, but are serving c 30 solutions, 150 databases...

Don't do that. Put the second server on another machine.
