    Native FMSAC FileMaker Server Administration Console

    DickHoning

      Hi there,

       

      just received a message that the FMSAC no longer works with Mac OS X Lion and Mountain Lion with the latest Java update.

       

      Is anybody else getting fed up with this Java based console and also wants FileMaker to (re-)produce a native app as we had with FileMaker Server 8 ?

       

      Or am I alone on this ?

       

      best regards - Dick Honing / ecOrganizer

          Getting fed up? That's a curious phrase. It suggests that you still have some expectation that the console would work. I have such low expectations of it that I don't expect it to work. Should I expect it to work? My experience tells me that it won't. It didn't last time or the time before that. If it worked I wouldn't care what language it was written in.

           

          I should note that this is a Mac OSX problem. The console server, when run on Windows Server seems OK.

           

          To save myself time and frustration I do a command line restart of the adminserver before I open the GUI.

            i haven't tried it myself, but Dan posted earlier with a trivial fix:
