License key conflict - already in use


FileMaker Server



Operating system version

OSX 10.6

Description of the issue

Our server crashed so we had to reinstall it. Now when I launch the Admin Console it tells me that "The license key is already in use by "Mac Mini". You must either stop that instance of FileMaker Server or use a different license key.

Here's a screenshot of the message:

It's the same computer and same installation. How do I reset the key and start over?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Reinstall server

Expected result

It should work with the same license key

Actual result

It gets locked to the last installation
