Unable to load Databases into clean FMSA12 install


FileMaker Server


12 - Advanced

Operating system version

Mac OSX 10.7.5

Description of the issue

Every time I try to upload a DB using Admin console, it failed with a dialog: Could not create folder, even if it was a subfolder that the Admin Console itself created. None of my DBs will work, not even a vanilla one I created with a single field in a single table.
fmserver and FMSadmin users both have Read & Write privs to the folder and everywhere on the path to it.
I've tried reinstalling FM Server, repairing Privs. As per this post ( my drive is not read only. I'm also not able to validate any external folders.
Have posted to FMDev:

Steps to reproduce the problem

Try and upload a DB into FM Server via the Admin console

Expected result

Database uploaded

Actual result

Upload failure

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

Configuration information

Vanilla server, vanilla install (and re-install) of FMS. Machine only has FM12 ProAdv installed on it.


NONE, can't validate external folders option
