My Development server recently had some issues so the OS Mountain Lion Server was reinstalled. The server is one of the newer Mac Mini Servers MAc OS X Serer 10.7.5. FMS is


I normally run this as a Headless system (No Monitor, No Keyboard and no mouse). Until now this has worked fine. Now when the monitor uis disconnected, when I start the FMS Console on the server, I get a blank pop-up window when it should be showing the user login. If the monitor is connected, I get the normal login screen and can log in.


Has anyone else seen this? Is there a fix? It is a bit of a pain since the back up drive is a Thunderbolt drive but the monitor is not. So I can either plug in the monitor or back up the server, but not both.


Work around is to run the FMS Console from my notebook but when working on the server this can be a bit awkward.


Thanks for any help or suggestions.
