FMP11 privileges block to admin account


FileMaker Server



Operating system version

10.6.7 Server (Mac Mini)

Description of the issue

When I try to log in as an admin user, I get the error message "Your access privileges do not allow you to perform this action." this action was opening the file.

Another user account with limited privileges opens the file with no problem, with appropriate rights. I can open other files on the same server and use admin access.

I uploaded a database to the server. I was working on it, then unplugged my laptop to work elsewhere. Connection to server was disrupted. This problem happened after that.

Steps to reproduce the problem

The file I had uploaded earlier works fine on the desktop (i.e. not on the server). Duplicating the file in the finder, renaming it and uploading again gave me the same problem. Creating a new [full access] user with a different name, then uploading the file, gave the same error for both full access accounts. Creating a new DB file (1 table, 2 fields, 2 records), uploading, gave me no problem with the admin account and password.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

Your access privileges do not allow you to perform this action."

Configuration information

Mac Mini Server with FMP the only duty.
