Windows service account (FM 11 Advanced)
Im trying to setup FM Server Advanced 11 on a Windows 2008 x64 virtual mahcine. Things are working fine, but I would like to set FileMaker service to run as it's own account, in lue of the "Local System" account as set by default.
However, when I do this in Server Manager, the service will start/stop; but does not appear to be opening the fp7 files, nor accepting network connections. If, I add this service account to the local "Administrators" group, then it works fine.
Is there a way to get File Maker to run in a seperate unprivledged account on windows? If not, are there any recommendations for locking it down if it must run as Local System?
I figured out the issue on my own ... apprently FM Server wants to modify registery keys under
Which, as a unprivledged user it cannot. I granted the local account I had created, permission to modify that key and sub-keys, and now FM Server will start as a service account.
