According to Knowledge Base Article 7152, Small Business Server is not listed as a compatible system for FMS 10.
I have been trying to get Filemaker server to work with Windows Small Business Server 2003 and have given up. I then tried installing it on Windows Enterprise Server 2003. The same problem. The Admin console will not start. I have called Filemaker support and they will not help me. I have to buy support before I can get help. I find that unacceptable when I have my PO ready to buy and can not get the Trial running. I have tested the sample database that comes with Filemaker server and it works as well as my own databases. Just not Admin Console. I tried reinstalling Filemaker many times as well as Java and different versions of Java. I can't not believe Filemaker will not help in a case of a trial that will affect the purchase of their product. Does anyone have any suggestions. Please Help.......
I've been informed that my earlier post is not completely accurate. Apparently, you can use FMS on Small Business Server, if you remove Sharepoint which conflicts with publishing your database to the web.
You should try removing Share Point from Small Business Server. Microsoft is really proud of share point and it is very difficult to completely remove. There is no option to not install it that I have found. I tried many times to find away....
I don't have the step-by-step procedure for uninstalling Sharepoint. You may want to go back to Microsoft for directions. Possibly, uninstall IIS and reinstall IIS without Sharepoint.
Sorry I can't be of more help.
