Same problem here. The support page http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/11550 claims that users of FileMaker Server 12, FileMaker Server 12 Advanced under Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) should use Java 6 (the most current version). Had it said otherwise I would not have updated. Does anyone know how to downgrade or is there a solution for this ?
I had the same problem and fixed it this way:
2. use the software Pacifist to open the pkg that you download above.
3. right-click on "Contents of JavaForMacOSX10.6.pkg" within the Pacifist window and select, "Install to default location".
4. select "replace" within every dialog that you see.
if you try to run the installer the usual way it'll fail telling you that newer software is already installed.
I did this on a server that we use for testing FMP databases. Please make sure you know what you're doing if you do this on a production system.
Thank you for the posts and I apologize for the delay.
If using FileMaker Server 12.0v3 (Advanced) on the latest version of Mac OS X 10.6.8, then follow the steps in KB 11958 in order to regain access to the Admin Console:
If anyone still needs assistance with accessing the FileMaker Server Admin Console, then please post back and we can discuss further troubleshooting steps.
