      Another copy of FileMaker Server (miniserv [10.1.10.66]) is already running with this license. This copy of FileMaker Server will not open any databases, but will allow updating the license key in the Admin Console.

      Your post

      I just upgraded my Mac Mini server from Mavericks to Yosemite. All went well, until I got an email from the Filemaker Server containing the subject line above. I only have Filemaker Server running on this one machine. It has never been installed on any other machine. When I go into the admin console the database file is shown as closed and I can't open it, re-close it or verify it. I copies the db file to another Mac and was able to open it locally on that Mac with no problem so I know the file is not corrupt. 

      The only thing that I can think of is I renamed the server from miniserv to Mini Server awhile ago. The email I got said:

       FileMaker Server 13.0v4 on Mini Server reported the following event:

      The first paragraph uses Mini Server and the second paragraph uses miniserv. So, somewhere it has retained the old name, miniserv. Any Idea as to how I can fix this problem? Will simply renaming the server back to the original miniserv fix it? Thanks for all your help!
