"another user is sharing files" error won't go away

Post

My server blinked off because my battery back up is too old. WHen I fired it back up it shows no disk errors but FM now has the error "FileMaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing files using FileMaker Pro on the computer." I've looked through the other posts here on it and try all those options. I'm don't have IPv6 on the system, I've replaced the two .pem files, I've logged on as another user so any user specific temp files would not be an issue. I also fetched a backup of my db file and no difference. I need to get past this error. Surely some programmer in FM can look in the code and see what triggers that error?

Server 2003 enterprise up to date

FM pro (not server) was 11.02 and I ran the update to 11.03

Restarted the server, checked for anyone else logged on or any other system with any fm files open. This is after hours so there was no one else there to log on anyway.
