Changing the FMS 16 Web Server IP Address

I have installed FileMaker Server 16 in a Windows Server 2016 Essentials machine which has two IP addresses with two different network as follows:


  • 192.168.10.x is my regular network (the default VLAN for all my servers and desktops devices)
  • 192.168.12.x is a separate, dedicated VLAN for an iSCSI network (separate LAN switches and different VLANs on the main router)


When I installed the FMS 16 in the Windows Server it installed the "Web Server" on the 192.168.12.x network and now I can't get to the admin-console from my remote desktops using the standard https://192.168.10.XXX:16000/admin-console or any reasonable combo of this or port 16001 won't work because it looks like it is listening on the wrong network (192.168.12 instead of 192.168.10 - see attached screen-shot)


How do I change the IP address of the FMS Web Server (this is not he Web Publishing Engine, its the admin-console web server)?


Please help!!!
