      FM 9 Server: Admin console error

       

      Greetings,

      Some months ago I installed FM Server 9 on a server running Windows Server SBS 2003. During this time all it was ok but, from some day until now, I can't reach the Admin Console Page, having HTTP Status 500 error (both locally than from a remote PC, both with Explorer than Mozilla). 

      None has change settings on the server.

      I tried to reinstall FMServer but nothing has changed. Now I would try to unistall and reinstall FM Server, but what about the files of my solutions? They are still open! Will I damage them?

      Please help me.

       

      Best regards.

          Thank you for your post.

           

          From the command line, enter:

           

          fmsadmin close

           

          This will close all database files properly.  You can then enter:

           

          fmsadmin stop server

           

          ... and this will stop FileMaker Server.

           

          Try rebooting FileMaker Server 9, and then try Admin Console.  If this still doesn't work, then perform the above fmsadmin steps above, and then uninstall and reinstall FileMaker Server 9.

              With Windows 2003 Server (not familiar with SBS), go to the Start menu and select "Run".  Then enter:   cmd

                :-((

                I tried the first step of the procedure: FMSADMIN CLOSE, but I've got the error:

                 

                FMSADMIN CONNECTION REFUSED: SERVER IS UNAVAILABLE

                FMASDIN: PERMISSION DENIED

                ERROR: 9

                 

                What else can I try to close the files?

                 

                Thanks

                  If you are getting the server is unavailable and permission denied, try logging in as the admin and trying again.  If the server is still not available, then FileMaker Server may not be running.  You can test this by going to another machine, launching FileMaker Pro and using Open Remote...   If the files show, then be sure to find the Admin password and then close the files.

                    Hey TSGal - Why can't FM write server software that doesn't require uninstalling and reinstalling every so often to fix these types of issues?

                     

                    I have about 30k invested in the FM platform between server and client, and I'm about fed up.
