folder/rights problem?

Dear Filemaker developers. I have run into a problem, which I hope you can help me with.


I have recently upgraded my Macmini server to High Sierra with the most recent updates. On this I have installed Filemaker 17 server with an SSL certificate.

The users are logging on, through a wired network from their Filemaker Pro 17 clients.

It seems that the rights for the folders are being reset every 4-6 hour. When I re-apply the user rights for the Filemaker Data folder, it works fine and users gain access to the databases.

But after a few hours, they get the Filemaker “Colour wheel” which doesn’t stop until rights has been reset again.


I know this is a very shallow description, not backed up by error logs. But maybe there was an easy fix (yeah right   ) that I hadn’t found my self.


thanks in advance,

Br Christian
