Are you running admin console on the server or on a different machine?
ADMIN CONSOLE IS RUNNING ON THE SERVER
Someone Plllllleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssssssssseeeeeeeeeeee help????Thanks,Carey
- Server Restart does not correct issue
- Also unable to connect to FM Server using AdminConsole from remote computer
- I am using RDC to connect to the server (unable to access physical machine)
- Windows Server 2008 apparently did an automatic update and auto-restart just prior to this issue occurring.
Thank you for your posts.
I don't have a quick answer, but do you know what occurred during the Windows Server 2008 automatic update? Was there anything else that occurred just prior to encountering this problem?
Even though the database files are still accessible, the automatic update may have created a conflict with the Admin Console. However, running a new Admin Console doesn't appear to fix the problem, so something still has caused a problem with Admin Console with FileMaker Server. Since this worked previously, I would uninstall FileMaker Server 10 completely, reinstall FileMaker Server, reboot the computer and then launch Admin Console. This should remove any possible conflicts.
Please continue to keep me updated with any progress.
I just tried to "repair" the installation, (without completely uninstalling FMS first). During this process, I got an error:
Error 1330. A file that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file C:\Users\Administrator\...\Data1.cab has an invalid digital signature. This may indicate that the cabinate file is corrupt. Error 0 was returned by WinVerifyTrust.
I am afraid that If I completely uninstall FMS, that I will not be able to reinstall it, at which point I would be in a major jam with my clients.
Any insight here?
Sorry for the late reply.
If you haven't found an answer by now, then I would uninstall and reinstall FileMaker Server to start. If that doesn't work, then do a fresh install of Windows 2008 Server followed by a fresh installation of FileMaker Server 10.

I had the same problem after updating the virtual machine on which FMS runs to 2cpus. I have not been able to fix it so I have only been using fmsadmin. I was hoping to avoid a fresh install of FMS, but from this post it seems it is the only option.
What version of Java do you have installed on the computer from which you are trying to run FMS Admin Console? I have had problems using Admin Console to FMS 11 when Java 7 update 51 installed. Try using a previous version of Java.
