Filemaker Server 188.8.131.52
Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard
Filemaker Pro 15 client
Currently encountering Windows permissions issues on folders used for external containers.
This is a critical issue which prevents proper operation of the solution we have developed.
PDFs are stored in container fields which are themselves stored externally on the Windows Server file system,
When PDFs are added, all works fine but if there are deleted and then added again (aka replaced), then the Windows permissions on the container folder are screwed up, Filemaker Server is unable to access the directory and the PDF cannot be added/updated.
The folder is rendered inaccessible:
Screenshots below show OS level security permissions on a folder for document03 before and after the replacement attempt:
BEFORE - works fine
AFTER - directory inaccessible to Filemaker Server, and PDF cannot be uploaded into container field:
