I uploaded a file to FMS 13 and now cannot access the file with my credentials. Perplexed, I removed the file from FMS 13 (closed, remove) and tried again. Same thing.
I removed the file again from FMS 13. This time, in FMP I set the file to open automatically with the active account/pw of admin/admin. Uploaded to FMS 13. When I tried to open the file (open remote) I am asked for my credentials, instead of opening automatically. I entered my credentials, and it was refused. I tried two other credentials and both failed.
I ran a backup schedule, copied the file, pasted to the desktop, and opened. It opened automatically, with the admin/admin. I forced the credential prompt and entered my credentials, which successfully logged me into the db.
Has anyone ever seen this before? Seems like a bug but I wonder if I'm missing something.
I may have figured it out:
FileMaker Network Settings on the file were set to "Specify users by privilege set" and one of the files privilege sets. I presume this didn't affect the local file, which I could open, because the local file wasn't shared. I switched this to "All users" and uploaded to FMS 13 again. This time, it opened as expected.
