I think you may want to look into how the crash was resolved... looks like the OS has had some doctoring...?
What makes you say that? Note that removal of Java pref pane is a common complaint about 10.9.x.
In Activity Monitor, filter the running processes on "fms", which ones are running?
The fact that the fmsadmin command line is not recognized is pretty bad, perhaps do a permissions repair first?
No, absolutely nothing fms was running.
I tried a permissions repair, that didn't fix it.
I finally did uninstall, reinstall, all the way back to 13.01 then forward to 13.04.
That fixed it.
But this is a machine that I have warned the client about: they are running file serving, other apps, time machine, spotlight, etc.
They don't seem to get the message.
I also tried to recommend a VPN but their external tech support guy doesn't understand that concept and so he just set up a VNC account and shell access.
The bill for my time might have paid for the separate machine that I have recommended. Their external tech guy argues, he will stick to MariahDB and happily ignore stupid FileMaker requirements.
But they are too cheap.
I'm running 10.9 and Java is certainly there...?
I have three customers with the same problem. All of them with Mac servers and FMS13.
It seems to be something related to backups:
This is my third reinstall on one of the servers. Totally crazy!
Checking in the faulty server I found this in the log:
Opened database "Tiempo de Ingenio_Fotos" read only because it has multiple hard links and may be a FileMaker Server backup file. You must make a copy of the file and open the copy to make changes.
This file holds images and all containers have external storage.
What are "hard links"?.
"hard links" is how FMS saves time and disk space NOT copying files during backups if they have not changed since the last backup. This was introduced with FMS 12, I a did devcon session on it showing how it works.
"hard links" is an OS feature of both Windows and OSX.
There was also a tech brief on the subject back then: http://fmforums.com/forum/blog/13/entry-443-filemaker-server-12-backups-faqs/
Did you move a backup into the live folder as part of a restore? (as opposed to copy it).
Did you move a backup into the live folder as part of a restore? (as opposed to copy it).#
Possibly, I did a lot of things and possibly a moved a copy to the live folder.
How can I change this?. I'll take a look at your link.
Thanks for the reference.
Move the files back out to another location (move, not copy). Then copy (not move) them back into the live folder.
Copying removes any hard links, moving keeps hardlinks intact.
