      AD account with Full Access is not able to change internal database permissions.

      Your post

      I support a user who logs into the FMP advanced server to work with her database.  With the Full Access that she has been granted to her Active Directory user account, she is not able to change the permissions on other users/groups access to the database.  Where it fails is after making the changes, it asks for a Full Access user's username and password.  She puts hers in, but it fails.  It responses with something to the effect "a Full Access user needs to authenticate"...blahblahblah.  The way we got around it is to enter the local filemaker pro administrator username and password.  Another option is for her to create a local filemaker account with Full Access permissions and do the permissions changes.

      I believe this is a programming bug.  Has anyone else run into such a problem?

      Relevant info:  Filemaker db is on a mac server running 10.6.5 with FMP Advanced Server 11.0.1

      Attempts have been tried on both a Mac (10.6.6) and Windows XP, both with FMP Advanced 11.0.1
