open the Services on the server and there are 4 services running Flow - all can be changed to a user with permissions (not the DB service)

Userlevel 3

The relevant part of the documentation: https://docs.safe.com/fme/html/FME-Flow/AdminGuide/Running_System_Services_Under_Different_Accounts.htm

Notably:

By default, the FME Flow Core, FME Flow Engines, and FME Flow Application Server Windows services run under the local system account, which does not have network permissions.
