Windows Server 2008 R2
Had a long-working install of Filemaker Server 13.5
Went to upgrade in the usual manner:
Installed Filemaker Server 14.2
When I get to the admin panel, nothing appears for the URL (localhost:16001/admin-console)
Tried un-installing and re-installing, no dice. The browser just shows a blank screen for the admin console.
I tried doing “fmsadmin restart adminserver” in the command line, but no dice with that either.
(Note: This is all before I have done ANY setup, because I didn’t even get to that stage.)
Finally, I gave up and un-installed 14.2, then re-installed FMS 13.5 again. It installed successfully.
When I opened FMS 13.5, I noticed that the logs said a few instances of:
“Admin Server process is not responding”, during the period when I was trying to install FMS 14.2
Clearly that’s the culprit, which is why I tried using the command-line above, but that didn’t seem to work.
1) I thought this was fixed with v-rev 2 of FMS 14?
2) Any other workarounds or things I might try?
