I am uploading a large fmp12 file (>7,5GB) through the FileMaker Server 12 Admin Console. The whole process completes successfully, however the file stays in zip format and does not appear in the Databases section of the Admin Console. However if you look in Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Databases, the file is there in zip format i.e. I then have to manually unzip the file in the Databases folder. Once this is done, the file appears as normal in the Admin console however one intruiging issue is that the fmsadmin user isnt assigned to the file permissions at all. The file then opens normally but I dont think all is well. I'd like to know what is going on as this is a production database.


Running the server on Mac OS X 10.7. Smaller files upload normally.


Any ideas?
