Sierra: No Time Machine backups without login session?

Hello everyone,

 

I cannot believe that I am the only one with this problem for I did not found any posts anywhere about this issue:

 

I found macOS Sierra doesn't create Time Machine backups until you start a login session. Leaving the Mac at the login window seems to prevent Time Machine from working. That's with all FileMaker Server 15 Macs I support but also with Macs running Server or Macs with even nothing particular added but a running web service. And it has nothing to do if the Backup target is a hard disk drive or a network share of a Mac server.

 

The Database directory of the FMS machines is excluded, energy saving is completely off.

 

I have no idea. Does anyone else have?

 

Regards from Hamburg,

Olaf
