FileMaker Server name and DNS

FileMaker Server name and DNS

Your post

I'm setting up a new Filemaker 11 Advanced Server on Windows 2008R2.  I've set the Server Name in the Admin Console to the same name of the server, and all works as expected.  However, when I try setting the Server Name to something other than the server name, like a DNS alias, I get an Error 508 -- Another copy of FileMaker Server is already running with this license key.

What I'd like to do is setup the server with the name ("foo"), but have users point to a DNS alias ("bar").  

Thanks for your help.
