Unable to contact local database via console
After watching my second-to-last G5 tower melt down, I have decided to move my FMPro Server installation from a similar G5 tower running Mac OS X 10.5.8 to a Mac mini (2.26GHz C2D) running 10.6.8. Since this computer servers other purposes, I thought it would simplest to: Install a fresh 10.6.8 on the mini, install the required 10.0.2(?) version of FMPro server 10 that was required for 10.6, run Migration Assistant from a clone of the live G5 drive to bring over users and environment. The test (for now) mini has a different name and IP that the live server. My current stumbling block is that the console on that computer still points to the live installation on the G5. I cannot figure out how to disconnect it from there and point it at the local set of database files. Entering any variation on http://localhost:16000 in Safari has it tell me it can't find localhost, or 127.0.01, or whatever variation I use. That could be stumbling block #2.
Don't migrate - if the Mini is just a FileMaker Server, just set it up and install FMS from scratch. You could export schedules from the old installation (FMS) when needed
