This may or may not help. It may or may not be in any way related to
your issue, but I've been there where anything is worth a try.
Our 64-bit Windows Server w/FMSA 10 has a problem whereby the FM Server
Admin Console no longer is updated with current status information. This
problem happens repeatedly, sometimes every day, sometimes it may go a
week or two.

The only solution that usually works to get the admin console
functioning again without a semi/total restart of the server came to me
from a FM engineer.

Here is the information as it was provided to me:


The next time you experience this issue, try issuing this two command
line commands:
"C:/Program Files/FileMaker/FileMaker
Server/Admin/admin-master-tomcat/bin/catalina.bat" stop "C:/Program
Files/FileMaker/FileMaker Server/Admin/admin-master-tomcat"
"C:/Program Files/FileMaker/FileMaker
Server/Admin/admin-master-tomcat/bin/catalina.bat" start "C:/Program
Files/FileMaker/FileMaker Server/Admin/admin-master-tomcat"


IMPORTANT: I have found that I need to wait for 2-4 hours between
issuing the "Stop" and the subsequent "Start" commands. Yes, I know this
sound implausible, but that's what it takes. Trying to issue the "Start"
sooner always fails to produce positive results.

HTH in any way.

Hi Folks,

I have a client who has experienced long term, persistent failures of 
CWP on a regular basis.  I'm looking for answers.

The environment is Windows Server 2008 running on a single 64 bit 
machine with 8GB ram...
