Admin Console problems

Admin Console does not respond

If Admin Console does not respond when you click tabs, commands, or options in Admin Console, the Admin Server process might have stopped. You can restart the Admin Server process by using the fmsadmin restart adminserver command. See CLI help for the restart command.

Cannot start Admin Console from a remote machine

Before the Admin Console Sign In page appears, your web browser displays a security message

This usually occurs for systems that don't have a custom SSL certificate installed. Click the option to continue or go directly to the page.

Request your own signed certificate from a certificate authority that matches your specific server name. If you use the standard FileMaker Server certificate, users may be warned of a problem with the website's security certificate because the standard certificate doesn't verify the server name. Trusted connections require a custom SSL certificate installed to digitally identify your server.
