Operating System: Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit

FileMaker Server Advanced version 11.0v3


Ran updates on java to 1.7u7 and 1.6u38 (32-bit versions).


Problem began after Force Quitting FileMaker because shutdown hung up.


Fully uninstalled FMServer, Bonjour and all java and moved FileMaker Server Directory out of the way. Restarted Machine.


Reinstalled FileMaker 11.0v5 and let it install bonjour 2.0.0 and java 1.6u38.


Windows Event logs show "Admin Server process has terminated abnormally." with eventID 701.


fmsadministrator.exe process is not running.


"fmsadmin start adminserver" pauses for a couple minutes, then returns nothing. This generates another 701 event.


Is there anything else to check regarding this issue?
