Summary

FMS 12 WPE conflict with Remote Desktop Services on Windows Server 2008 r2

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

FMS 12

Operating system version

Windows Server 2008 r2

Description of the issue

There is a port conflict between FMS Web Publishing and Remote Desktop Services which both make use of IIS.

I had FMS already installed and I got the error (screenshot below) when I was installing Remote Desktop Services, which implied that FMS was already using a resource it needed.

So uninstalled FMS and Remote Desktop Services and this time installed Remote Desktop Services before FMS. RDS installed fine this time, but on installing the FileMaker WPE I got an error saying the wer server couldn't be reached. So there's some kind of port conflict between the two programs.

Tried installing on the alternative Port 591 but no joy either.

Can someone tell me how I can get this working on an alternative port, so that both programs can run on the machine.

Both FMS and FileMaker as a RemoteApp are certified to run on Win 2008 r2 so it ought to work!

Below is log extract from the WPE deployment - I tried 4 different settings, none of which worked.

Help please! Thanks in advance!
