I upgraded to Snow Leopard and after the upgrade I can not access my Final Cut Server. It worked fine before the upgrade. Typical! When I attempt to access the DB from the client application I get "Database is not running, please start up the database server."
When I go to the Systems Preferences for Final Cut Server I get a message, "To use the Final Cut Server preferences pane, System Preferences must quit and reopen". After clicking "OK", I get another message, "There was an error communicating with the server. Database is not running, please start up the database server".
Whe I finally get to the FCS Preferences pane, it shows that the Server is ON, I attempt to recylce it by turning it OFF, then ON and it seems that all the preferences are now BLANK. YIKES.
I came acros this post http://eric.harris-braun.com/blog/2009/11/10/id-149 I think he is on to the issue, but before I go through all that I am wondering if there is a simple solution.
Are you on FCSVR 1 or 1.5? If you are using 10.6, then 1.5 is required:
If you are on 1.5 and still receiving this error, I would use Console to check the system log on the server in for more detail on what the problem is.
