Question about FileMaker Server 5.5 (540100U) for Mac, PC

1 Answer

Filemaker Server 5.5 not serving my ebase database

Filemaker Server 5.5 (v4) shows that it is running. The serving tray is spinning, and it appears in my activity monitor as 'active'. When I click the database alias on another computer, it opens FMP, asks for my password, tries to open the file and then nothing happens - FMP program stays open but not database appears. Database is running fine on the host computer . Server appears to be running on host computer.

I tried reinstalling the FM Server. I also tried opening the database by using the client prompt in the installation disk - that generated the same problem - it could not access the database file, so nothing opened. Any suggestions?

    We are in Mac OS X

    Thank you! How do I get the remote admin plug-in. Should it be on the application CD? Also, how do I "allow for it in the clients application preference"?

  • membershi113 Nov 25, 2008

    I am making headway! When installing the Server Remote Administration on the guest computer with the original CD, I got an error message: "error creating file" 1008:5, -5000 access denied error". I am not sure where to go from here. Are you able to offer any more suggestions?

  • membershi113 Nov 25, 2008

    One last weird thing - I am now able to open FMPro on the Guest Computer --> Open Remote --> specify the IP address of the Host Computer --> pull up the database from the Host Computer and use it without problems. The old "alias" or "shortcut" I had on the desktop of the Guest Computer will NOT open this database. Is there a way to create a new "alias"/"shortcut" on the Guest Computer that will serve the database from the Host Computer? Thank you.

    the sofware is not supported on XP or Vista, supported OS's are Mac OS X and Windows 2000, as well as Mac OS 8.6 to Mac OS 9.1 and Windows NT

    In order to perform any actions on the server, you will need to have the remote admin plug-in installed on the client machine. Once thats done, the open, close, send and disconnect buttons become active .
    Provided you have allowed for it in the clients application preferences, server 5.5 clients can download plug-ins from the server
    automatically, when they are required or when an upgrade becomes available.
    So if you haven't already installed the remote Admin plug-in and you log in to remotely administer a server, the plug-in can be installed across the network for you automatically.

    I'm not really familiar with this software because i am a windows and linux user but i have found the Administrator guide for setting the sever 5.5 up properly and will tell you how to configure it properly i.e. plug-ins and updates:

    i think backing your data up that is already on the server first maybe a good idea, and then i would uninstall the programme and start from the begining following the pdf thay you will have downloaded.


    the best of luck and regards

    again i'm not familiar with the software, but if you consult the manual and read it carefully, it will no doubt provide you with the solution.

Hi - the CD tray cannot open. It is empty - no CDs in there. I hear a buzz, but an "error" message comes on. I tried pushing on the tray while turning on; I unplgged the CD player, I put it on...


The loading tray belt has more than likely stretched or snapped.
The buzzing you hear will be the motor spinning freely.
The 'ERROR' message will show up because the tray isn't opening
and activating the 'tray open' switch, therefore the 'tray closed' switch
is permanently activated after the 'open/close button is pressed.

Check if you have the appropriate specification to run it; try uninstalling and then reinstalling or running a troubleshooter if you have got the correct specs.

Sometimes software locks up due to not been activated, did you activate the product.

Hope this helps!

Filemaker Server 8 can't open file


Hi Jermia,
a bit late for the answer, but maybe it can help others...

This usually means the file has not been closed properly following a hard shutdown of the server (power outage?). It could be that the file needs to be recovered, or simply checked by Filemaker.
In both cases, you need to open the file with the client version of Filemaker Pro 8, then close it again, and the Server should happily open it thereafter. Here, we keep a copy of Filemaker client on the server for these rare occasions.
