Cannot edit a scheduled script on server

This is about FileMaker Server 14.0.302 running on a Windows 2012 machine.

 

Scheduled scripts are running just fine, but they can't be edited.  I select the database and enter the correct user name and password which is a full access account.  One of those HTML-5 yellow pop-up things appears telling me that there are no accounts available for the selected script.  (Not verbatim, but I can't invoke a screen capture fast enough before it disappears.)

 

Until today, I could just click NEXT a second or third time and the Admin Console would proceed to allow me to edit the script.  Now, it just refuses altogether.

 

I don't see this problem on other FMServer installations.  What might be the cause and the cure?

 

 

 

follow-up remarks:

 

After restarting the server, I tried again.  This time I memorized the pop up message: "No scripts are available for the specified account."  It's just simply an erroneous message, putting it politely, because all the scripts on the server are definitely available for the specified account.  And, thanks to restarting, I can click NEXT to dismiss the stupid message and edit the script, but it still makes no sense at all.
