I have a couple of sequence scripts configured on our FM14 server (under Windows 2008 R2) and for some reason, the system level scripts after the internal FM scripts no longer launch under the identity I specify in the schedule config. They always launch under System and that's causing access problems. The server has been rebooted and I have tried brand new schedules for the tasks but nothing changes. Anyone seen similar behavior and have a solution?

I have a FileMaker layout with a portal to another table. The relationship shows all unassigned records (related < 1). On each portal row I have a button which runs a script. The idea is that when you press the button the a value from the main record is copied and pasted into a field in the portal row (and as a result the portal record becomes 'assigned' and is removed from the portal.
I have the button running a script and pasting the value from the main record but it is pasting it in the first portal record, not the one whose button was clicked.
Is there a simple way of having the value pasted into the portal record where the button was clicked or do I have to store the record number (or something) and paste back to that record?
Hi I'm running FMS server and have daily and hourly backups. I'm not using cloning and I do verify integrity. Today we ran into a major problem were some data was deleted and I wanted to use a backup and restore the data. I moved the backup file to a local machine (away from the FMS and to my local FMA 14) to check if the data we deleted was stil there. But the whole file is empty?! All backups are empty, zero records. The file size is large enough to assume it should be there but there simply is nothing. 0/0 records shown.
I'm not cloning for sure! I have made a new rule for backup and ran it right away and the data is still gone! So all 99 rolling backups are useless. I need this fixed as this is absolutely unreliable now. We assumes we had plenty backups, when there is actually no backup at all.
ps. Stopping the DB and downloading it results in yellow/red/green icons but I don't see it anywhere. Everything is on Macs and the FMS is running at another location.

Hello all. I am running the FMS 14 backup scripts to a custom folder on the same disk as the Filemaker install. There are a number of errors generated.
Schedule window Status says "permission denied" Main Status window say "Schedule "Daily" aborted; the destination "filemac:/server HD/fmsbak/" is not writable." Folders ARE created the backup databases but some files are corrupted (although others not) The backup folders do not delete after the schedule number of backups. And only recently I can't change the folder path as nothing happens if I validate or save and to log out I have to revert.
Any help with this would be terrific. Thanks

Hope someone can help with this issue.
I have filemaker server 14 installed on windows 10 ( yes! I know that is not part of the recommended specs by filemaker but it has been very stable for me as I only use it for odd db's when I am out and about from the office) and was working fine no issues whatsoever. I use ports 8080,443 and have port forwarded them through router as well as all the other ports required as per filemaker documentation.
All of a sudden it has stopped working. (no! There have been no windows updates)
I have disabled all firewalls and Sophos(this really doesnt like server for some reason).
I can connect to the server via LAN (ie local network) fine. but connecting remotely has stopped all of a sudden.
I use changeip to create a dynamic IP and that is working fine.
I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled the server as well.
Any ideas as to where i could look to see where the problem may lie?
I have tried to connect with filemaker go V13, 14 and 15 and filmaker pro 14 and 15 from variuos machines (no joy) now i am completely pulling what little hair I have out.
cheers in advance.
