"fmsadmin stop server" works but hangs forever

I have a Mac Mini 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5 with 16Go RAM (end 2014) running Mac OS X 10.11.6 and Filemaker Server


I have a shell script with those commands (simplified for the purpose of reporting):


fmsadmin close

fmsadmin stop server


Under Filemaker Server 14 this script was working perfectly and exited normally.


Since I upgraded to Filemaker 15, the "fmsadmin stop server" command step seems to do its job but hangs somehow for ever.


I have reproduced those commands in the terminal and the "fmsadmin stop server" command hangs. The terminal prompt doesn't appear even after many hours...


See attached screen pictures

- 1.pdf --> terminal commands and event.log

- 2.pdf --> graphic interface of Admin Console that shows the server is down even if the command is still active


Until I find the solution the command "sudo launchctl stop com.filemaker.fms" seems to work properly and ends/exits after all the processus are closed.


Is there a way to debug this further and discover what is happening during this "hanging" ?

Could it be because ODBC/JDBC is still active ?


Thanks in advance
