      "The Database Server is not available"

      Your post

      I have recently installed the demo of FileMaker 11 Advanced on on my Windows 2003 server, but I can't open the Admin Console. I get an error that says "The Database Server is not available", if I click cancel everything goes away, if I click restart I get a new error "Filemaker Server has stopped working".

      I've tried to uninstall and reinstall more than once, no change. I made sure to open ports 5003, 16000, 16001, 16004, 50003, 5013.

      When I check the application logs it seems like FileMaker Server is starting and running fine, so it seems as if the problem might simply be the console. Any advice would be a big help.
