Serious Problem/Bug with SSL on FileMaker Pro 12 Server

Your post

     Hi,

     Whenever I enable SSL on the database server, the database server won't restart. I literally have to reinstall the server in order to get it back to work (as you can't modify the server settings while the server isn't started).

     So in order for SSL to work correctly you apparently have to have a certificate in CStore (/Library/FileMaker Server/CStore) which directory is currently empty. Attempting to generate an SSL certificate using fmsadmin (fmsadmin CERTIFICATE CREATE hostname.domainname.tld) comes up with:

      

     fmsadmin: Failed to generate the new certificate request file [/Library/FileMaker Server/CStore/serverRequest.pem].
     Error: -1
      
     Anyone know what problem this is and how to fix it?
      
     It's FM Pro Server (Std) 12 on Mac OS X Server 10.7.5 on an XServe (8-core, 24GB RAM). The databases are located on XSAN storage (SAS).
