Thank you. This worked to stop the servers. I was able to install the update.
However, the FileMaker Server Admin console is still missing. The application is nowhere to be found. Advice?
Ok. I get it now. It's different than it was with version 8. The admin console is accessed through a browser. It used to be a separate application.
I uninstalled. Reinstalled. Did the tests again. Read some of the documentation and discovered the information I needed there.
Thank you once again for your solution to stopping the servers.
