FileMaker 9 Admin Console Recovery

Recommended Posts

  • Newbies


Sorry if I'm in the wrong part of the forum, please let me know if I need to move my post!

Recently I have inherited a legacy FileMaker 9 server setup with a handful of users. The admin credentials for the server install have been lost to time, however we would like to change the server that the installation is running on due to the hardware being so old (Windows Server 2003). We also do not have the license key for our installation.

Is it possible to recover the admin password or remove the need for admin credentials for the FileMaker admin console?  I have full administrative privilege on the machine otherwise, but am unable to access FileMaker.

If it is possible, would we be able to recover our license key through the admin console? Or do we need to upgrade to a newer version of FileMaker and import our databases?

Thanks for any help you can provide!
