Summary

Database server not available: can't launch Admin Console in FMS9

Description of the issue

On a newly installed Windows 2003 server, I did a fresh clean install of FileMaker Server 9 and then when I attempt to launch the admin console, a message appears saying that the Database Server is not available. I made sure to run all the update patches up to and including 325.  I tried running 326 but it doesn't do anything on this server. I don't know if this is a Java problem or something else. I have read some posts that suggest that duplicate instances of the same license on the network can cause this problem but that is not my situation.  In fact, the first time I saw this error, I did not even have a network cable plugged into the server. Will appreciate any answers.  thank you in advance.
