    fmsadmin fails after update to FileMaker Server


      I used to be able to start the FileMaker database engine with the terminal command "fmsadmin start SERVER". This does not work anymore after the update. It returns the error message "sh: fmsadmin: command not found".


      Everything worked fine before the update. FileMaker server is running on a Mac mini (2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 with 8 GB RAM and SSD) under MacOS 10.9.5 Mavericks.


      Please fix this major bug immediately!

          Thank you for your post.


          I am unable to replicate the issue with FileMaker Server 14.0.4a under Mac OS X 10.11.1 and Mac OS X 10.10.5.  I currently don't have access to Mac OS X 10.9.5.


          In each case, I am able to start and stop the server from the command line using:

          fmsadmin start server

          fmsadmin stop server


          Since the command "fmsadmin" isn't being recognized, something in the installation didn't update properly.  Therefore, I would uninstall FileMaker Server 14.0.4a, move the relevant files (database files, etc.) to the Desktop, remove the FileMaker Server folder, and then reinstall FileMaker Server 14.0.4a.
