Calendar System issue with FM Server/WebDirect

Dear Community,


We are running Filemaker Server on a Windows Server in Bangkok and are having two issues with the calendar system:


1) When trying to schedule a backup in the Admin Console of Filemaker Server, it will show Buddhist calendar (2561 instead of 2018). This means the backups are never done because Filemaker will wait 543 years until to start the scheduled backups.


2) In WebDirect if we have a date field with date picker, it will also show Buddhist calendar, which screws up our whole database if someone uses the date picker.


Do you have any idea how to fix this? I do not see any setting to choose the calendar system (Christian, Buddhist etc.)... As you can see in the attached screenshots - both server and client are running christian calendar (2018). I have no idea where this comes from...


Thank you so much!
