Installing FMS 11.0v4 on Lion Server -- requires extra restart after installation!

Your post

I noticed FMS 11.0.4 was out, so I went to install it on my test 10.7.1 server.

I removed 11.0.3, restarted the server and installed 11.0.4

However, at the deployment phase, it couldn't start the admin app as it claimed that Safari couldn't connect via port 16000.

 

I had to restart the server *after* installing 11.0.4 (which isn't noted in the install notes) -- and then port 16000 was open.

 

I noticed the same problem when upgrading my test server from 10.6.8 to 10.7.1 (which was running FMS 11.0v3 at the time).   To get the FMS admin app to connect, I had to *try* to connect (which failed) and then restart the server again -- and then it worked.

 

It might be a firewall issue, but I thought I'd toss out a heads-up about it.
