Filemaker databases won't auto-open on computer without user attention.

Post

I have Filemaker on a server running several databases for a small company.  Each database is set to launch automatically (using the login options) in case the computer has to restart.  however the databases not open unless I click the Filemaker icon in the dock.  It just keeps bouncing for my attention.

So Filemaker will open, but not the databases.  Once I click the icon (only once) all of the datbases launch perfectly.

I need these to start without user input because if I am gone, I need to know that the databases will still be available to other users (since I am the admin and nobody else has access to the server).

 

Its strange as this is the only application of the many I use on the server that has this issue.
