FMServer 7 and Mac OS 10.5
My IT guy who doesn't work with FM had to install the updated version of Mac OS on my server machine (which is just a desktop). Because of this, I had to reinstall all of my FMS 7 software. Before I move on to installing FMS7A, I want to verify that FMS7 works just fine. I install everything and I go to start the server to verify it. However, at the local server window, I unlock the window and click "start server" but nothing happens. The button remains greyed out, and after some time the lock icon locks itself with nothing happening.
I had it installed so FMS7 would just start on its own, but I then re-installed to manually start up to see if this would fix the issue. Sadly, both ways leave me without FMS working.
As of now, I am just trying to test the sample database that comes with Server 7. As I noted, I am running on OS10.5 (Leopard). And before testing this out, I did install all the upgrades available for FMS7. I have all the necessary sharing on, and the firewall is set to its most basic setting.
Because the server is not running, I cannot get into the console window to change anything, or to set any passwords or anything else.
