    Unable to load Databases into clean FMSA12 install



      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 (http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/6e9e3b2c1a) my drive is not read only. I'm also not able to validate any external folders.
      Have posted to FMDev: https://fmdev.filemaker.com/message/105531

      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

      Admin Console - Upload Database Assistant
      Could not create folder:
      /Volumes/Server HD/Library/Filemaker Server/Data/Databases/

      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
