What is the version of java??
You may need to update the java vm first and then try to launch the admin console.
it seemed like there was something wrong with java. i had an old and a new version. i removed the old one and now get a different error:
HTTP STATUS 500
FileMaker Server has encountered an error:
The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.
If the Server Launch Page is not available, visit the FileMaker Website for more assistance.
FIlemaker server 10
it looks like that is only for remote connections. im trying to launch it directly on the server. is that a problem?
i did run FileMaker Server 10.0v2 Updater though. but the problem remains.
The localhost:16000 will test for Java but will render the page even if Java is missing or incompatible. I think younare barking up the wrong tree with Java. In the IIS console, you should have virtual directories for fmi-test and jarkarta folders. If these are not there, FileMaker and IIS do not communicate.
If you get real stuck, call me and we can do a team viewer meeting and i will give it a look. Can this machine display other IIS pages?
Hi Joe - the only page i can get it to load in IIS is the IIS welcome page (http:localhost/)
there are no filemaker info in my iis tree. is that needed?
As far as the version of Java on the server, I would remove Java from the server and let the FileMaker installer install Java- that way you know the versions will work together- and never update Java on that server unless it is done with a FileMaker update installer...
Then i probably have a IIS problem. But it did run both times i installed fielmaker so i doubt reinstalling now would help.
i guess the question is why wont fm install into iis on this server.
ive looked into the roles and under "web server" which is installed there is a ton of components to either install or uninstall. stuff like - ASP.NET, CGI, HHTP redirection, authentications, directory browsing, etc
Some are installed and some are not. is there a list of needed IIS roles and components somewhere i can work through and compare with this server?
If you have that machine on a public address, you could grant me temporary access via RDP and I would be happy to poke around….
I haven’t keep up with the number of Server installs I’ve done, but I’m guessing it’s 500+ at this stage…
