HELP unable to start database server
I am having a very odd problem.
It started when I rebooted our filemaker server.
Once it rebooted, no one could log into any databases.
I opened the admin console and got the error message "Could not start database server"
When I clicked on the server start icon, it got an hourglass then back to cursor after a minute but it did not start - got same message when I click any of the links on the left - such as databases.
I figured... well... lets manually stop and restart - so I cycled the service manually. Still no luck.
At this point I figured, well, I wanted to upgrade to version 11 anyways.. so I uninstalled filemaker server 10, including bento and the admin console - rebooted the server and installed version 11 server.
It installed fine - but when it went to launcht he admin console for me to set up the server and databases, ect... I get the message Cannot Start Database Server - Restart Server.
Again I manually cycled the services ect... Even tried the command prompt commands to start the server... no luck.
I have no idea what could be causing this ... basically I uninstalled 10 and did a fresh install of 11 and still get this odd DB not running message.
Any ideas? Im ready to drive off a cliff!!!
