FM Server 9—OSX    backup failure: "access denied"

Your post


Filemaker Server v9.0.3 on Mac OSX 10.5.8


All scheduled and manual attempted backups by FM Server to the default backup folder have suddenly returned a message "access denied". All folders involved have read and write permission for fmsadmin, me, and fmserver. This was working fine for months, then out of the blue (well, I'm sure there was some event that caused it but I haven't been able to determine what) it stopped working.


I created a new schedule, same result. I tried manual initialization, same result. The server confirms the path as valid. Everything is at root.


I'm stumped. Ideas?
