Paradox on Windows Server 2012

Paradox on Windows Server 2012 in Paradox Setup, Vista, etc. topic (part of our Corel Paradox / ObjectPAL Coding group).

We migrated from using a run of the mill Windows XP box as a server to Windows Server 2012; one of the applications we use is a simple 3 table database which stopped working the moment the files were being accessed from the new server. We could see data but trying to add anything would result in a Lock Time Out error.

I discovered that if I remove Referential Integrity from the detail table structure, and just assign it through the data model on the form, everything works.

Would it be OK to leave it like that? or would it be somehow dangerous for the integrity of the data?

Could the problem have come from some setting on the server? The person who installed the server for us doesn't think so but I'm not sure he is as familiar with Windows 2012 Server as I thought.

For the time being I will be monitoring the data and checking that nothing is lost.

Any suggestions?

Lock Time Out errors - I am currently dealing with this, have Microsoft involved as well.

Two weeks ago, we migrated from Server 2008 R1 (Vista based) to Server 2016 (Win 10 based). We run Paradox (Office X6) on clients from XP, 7, 10 x86 / x64, and ONLY store the data on the server's mapped drives.

Paradox locks, crashes, does not behave well at all when pointing to the new server (*).
Through much testing, pointing to a Win8.1 box as a "server", works fine. Pointing to a test Server 2012 R2 box, works fine. Point to the 2016 box, and things get REALLY strange.

Pointing to a 2016 Domain Controller's shared test folder, Paradox WORKS. Huh. fails on File Server, runs on DC.

File Server (2016) #1, RAID1 (2x drives) for OS, shared folder on C:\ WORKS. Running from the RAID 10 (4x drives) data partition, fails the way I mentioned.

File Server (2016) #2, RAID 10 (6x drives, broken up into 2 partitions, 300Gb for OS, 1500Gb for data), WORKS on C: partition, fails on data partition. Install Windows Server 2016 on data partition to make it bootable, etc., FAILS. Make C:\ the entire disk, if WORKS.

I see that X8 is out. While I doubt there's been ANY changes, I'm going to try it and see if it works at all. We've been running this / some iteration of my Paradox app to run the company since... mid 90's, and the boss doesn't want to replace it before he retires. :)
