I restarted Windows Server this morning and now FMS will not re-open.
I tried net start Filemaker Server from command line and got system error 1003 cannot complete this function.
Windows Server 2016
Is the the FMS service itself that does not start? The one in the Windows control panel?
Any clues in the Windows event log?
Is it possible that the license key is active on another server on your network?
I don't think this is possible
net start "FileMaker Server Throws error 1003
Same in Services
Have you tried rebooting the server?
What is in the event-log ?
Did you tried a repair-installation of FMS?
I did a clean install of FM Server.
But what is in the Application eventlog ?
To see it, open a command prompt at the server (as Administrator) and enter
Then look at the Windows protocols and there in the application log.There you should find some RED entrys with the source from the Filemaker Server.Maybe more than one
View the Detail of the error(s)
I looked in Summary of Administrative Events, and Log Summary. (Server 2016)
Anyway, nothing in Red. There was some rows with filemaker but not red and did not seem out of ordinary
Hard, you will need support on this server.
Just check a last thing:
Check the configuration is there and valid.C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Admin\conf\server_config.xml
Yes it is there; but I did a clean install of FMS. I ran out of time to figure out what happened so I just did a clean install and everything working ok
Do a Backup
