Thank you for the posts.
The Java error message "Your security settings have blocked an application signed with an expired or not-yet-valid certificate from running" indicates that the computer's Java Security preferences are set higher than will allow the FileMaker Server Admin Console Java applet (.jnlp file) to launch.
Being able to launch the FileMaker Server Admin Console is a free standard support topic through FileMaker's technical support, so please don't hesitate to call as we always want a user to be able to administer his/her server.

Thanks for that. All working now
I got off the phone with Filemaker Support just now. The representative I talked to said they do not have an updated certificate. My old certificate expired December 14, 2012. I'm a little flabbergasted at this. It's not difficult to get a new certificate and having to lower the security level for all applications seems like a sledgehammer approach.
I'm running Server 2008 with Java 7 Update 40 (most recent). I think in Update 51 they add a Site Exceptions list, but that update is not available on the server version yet.
Thanks for your reply.
