Summary

Every FileMaker 11 Server Admin Console won't open

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

11

Operating system version

Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, OS X 10.6.8

Description of the issue

Over the past 7 months FileMaker Server Admin Console version 11 stopped working on EVERY server we operate. Dozens!  Some of the servers had updated Java and others not.  The console just won't open.  Now, months after uninstalling FileMaker Server Advanced, uninstalling Java, reinstalling both, reinstalling extensions, and extensive reconfiguring scripts, users, etc., it's starting all over again to each server one at a time.

Workaround

Remove FileMaker Server Advanced version 11, remove all Java, reinstall both, reconfigure FileMaker, reinstall extensions,and have about 5 hours to do all this.
