Server Move Trouble

Recommended Posts

We are moving our FM 16 Server to a new virtual machine for the eventual purpose of upgrading the OS and getting to the most recent FM version. After the virtualization yesterday, FM Services would not start.  I am attempting to uninstall and reinstall the software, but I am running into a roadblock. "Ports 50003 and 50004 are not available. Make them available and try again."   Not sure how this is possible, since the firewall on this machine is entirely off.  Would appreciate any help so I don't have to leave the country.

Already got it figured out. Apparently the DNS server on the new virtual server grabbed 5003. We disabled the DNS, and successfully reinstalled the software, the turned DNS services back on. I'm glad I don't have to leave the country. As an American right now, not sure where I could legally go.
