fmsadmin promps for user/pass when it shouldn't

FileMaker Server 17.0.1 and 17.0.2

Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016


The Admin Console is configured to allow users in the Administrators group to login. From powershell, or a cmd command line, if I run a command that requires authentication, I am occasionally prompted for a username/password. Most of the time I can run commands that require authentication without being prompted, which is the expected result. In a case when I'm prompted, I can press Ctrl+C to abort, then run the command again and I am not prompted the second time.


At first I thought it was random, but I just noticed one sequence of events that will reproduce this issue every time for me:

fmsadmin stop server -y
fmsadmin start server
fmsadmin list files


I'm not sure if this is the only cause or not; I'll try and keep an eye out for it to see if it happens at any other time.
