I can't start the Filemaker Server，it shows 'error 1003:cannot complete the fuction'.How can I solve it?
I'm not on a Windows machine at the moment (only iPad here) - but
- what version of FMS do You have?
- what OS version?
You're trying to start fms helper - is there not another service for FMS?
In fact I cannot open my FMS last week suddenly,I think if I can start the service,I will solve this problem.
if it was running last week, just restart the server (what happened that FMS stopped? Check the logs..)
or start the FMServer process (not the helper..)
there is only one kind of server,
today I had tyied to repair it,but it shows one filemaker server coulded be started,so defeat.
ok... Your screenshot in the first posting shows the 'helper' as app, that's why I asked
You might try to reboot the server. Without knowing what was changed - hard to tell... Nothing in the log's?
What is the reason the startup property is set to "automatic - delayed"? Does it make a difference if you set it back to its default of 'automatic'?
The error is often because the machine does not meet the minimum requirements but that wouldn't apply here necessarily if it was running before. So as mschneider indicated: check all the logs for other signs of trouble, see what was changed on the machine since last week (updates installed, hardware failing,...)
This is the last one I found about FMS,but it looks like useless.
It run normally before.
The two screenshots are unrelated. The bottom one shows that FMS is running properly after being start around 10:45.
The top one is about the FileMaker Pro client (not the server), the trial for FM Pro has expired and can't be used anymore. That has nothing to do with FMS running or not.
On the server machine, open a CLI window (powershell or cmd) and type in:
fmsadmin list files -s
provide the fms admin console credentials
What is the output of the command?
When I open the FMP,it shows

This is irrelevant, because it is FileMaker Pro, not FileMaker Server. But be extremely careful: never use FMP on the FMS machine to open a file from the hard disk. Ever. Unless you are 1,000% sure that FMS is not running.
The fact that you are trying to open the files with FMP while they should be hosted by FMS is very worrisome.
Do you have an SSL cert installed? If not, turn SSL off once you can get to the admin console.
You haven't answered the question about why FMS is set to start up automatically (=default) but delayed (=not default).
Also: is FMS still set to log on as "system", which is the default?
Becuse I try to open all the options,the last one is delayed.
Sorry,I cannot understand the meanning of the third quertion.
You mean that if FMS is running on a machine,I should not open FMP on it?But I ofen do this.Is there anything wrong ?

Never mind; the screenshot you showed in post #4 shows that the FMS service is still set to the default 'local system'
At this point I would try uninstalling and reinstalling. Making sure to:
- after uninstall: manually rename the 'filemaker server' folder that is left in 'program files'
- install any pending windows updates
- install FMS
It is dangerous if you use FMP to open the file from the hard disk instead of using "open remote" like the remote clients do. Opening a file from the hard disk while FMS has it hosted is the same as those files being available to remote machines through OS-level file sharing. That's the #1 cause for file corruption.
Once FMS has the file, the ONLY safe way
Having FMP on the FMS machine adds an element of danger because it so easy to forget to use 'open remote'. So I'm not saying "never do it"; but I am saying: 'be aware of the extra danger and be very dilligent about how you open the files'.
If I uninstall and reinstall FMS,Will the original data disappear?Several files with FMP are hosted by FMS.
Oh,thank you,I will never do that again.

No. Your original files will still be in that folder that you'll rename right after the uninstall.
Ok,thank you very much for your answer，it has solved the problem which bothered me a long time.
Retrieving data ...
