this does not give us much information to work with.. You did it (what ever IT is).. what did you do that you cant reverse?
If you disabled/deactivaated the ONLY full access account then your probably going to have to exercise your lungs.
Again.. not much to go on.
Maybe if you put in a few more exclamation points it would help us understand?
When you say "disabled" do you mean:
- Disabled account in security?
- Deleted the admin account?
- Remove full access accounts with developer utilities?
I was in File>Manage>Security in FM 14. I was trying to edit the user group preference and unchecked admin leaving the lower level users checked and clicked OK. Now I can't edit anything because I took those privileges away from those users.
Unchecked in Security. The account is still there just not "active".
Log on to the file with an account that has full access or sufficient permissions to edit the security settings.
Then "check it"
I can't get back into the Manage Security.
if you deactivated the only account that has sufficient permissions to edit security settings then start screaming or restore from a backup.
Thats why FM prompts you to authenticte with a full access account when saving changes to the accounts/security functions
Just tried to disable the Full Access account in a Test File and was unable to. FMPA will not let you and gives a message"
There are no active FileMaker accounts that use the Full Access privilege set. There must be one account like this. Create a new account or modify an existing account to use the Full Access privilege set."
Good news for you, there is a major misunderstanding here.
You can not remove the last active account that has full access AND you can not disable the last account with full access.
You will get this dialog:
Så even if you have disabled your "Admin" or deleted the "Admin" user, there will be one of your other accounts with full access.
Try all your logins, one or more of them will belong to the privilege set "Full Access".
And btw: This is the right answer:-)
So, do not cry.
Ps. There is one way to completely remove the admin access: Use the Developer Tools in FileMaker Pro Advanced (or rather, do not!).
Try using Admin with no password
Do you have a backup?
Kind of. When my IT guy set up the Server he didn't schedule the backup on the server, but does backup the server computer nightly.
Backups are your lifeline. Make sure that backups are scheduled in FMS. "outside" backups of the server machine may catch open database files and there is no guarantee of consistency with that.
As a side-effect, backups do significantly lower your stress level in case of a mishap
No Doubt. I just scheduled them on the server.
