FMS13 License conflict on same machine

Your post

After a restart last night -- for reasons unknown -- our FMS 13 installation began reporting that "Another copy of FileMaker Server (AOV-SERVER's-Mac-Pro []) 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." That IP address is the same machine. I have restarted the computer twice. My next step would be to re-install FMS, but I'm not sure that would fix the problem. Any ideas out there?

This is a new Mac Mini running Yosemite, 10.10.3; 8gb ram. 

I noticed that the IT guy had turned on OS X fast-user-switching. FMS does not run in a user account so that was probably not the problem, but it does seem similar. I have turned it off.
