Chests becoming unlocked

Game mode: [Online ]
Problem: [Bug]
Region: [US]

A friend of mine was complaining that chests were becoming unlocked after server restarts. I built a new base and now I have noticed that one of my chests was unlocked this morning after I locked it last night.

I don’t know how or why it happens, but I am going to dismantle and recreate the chest in the same spot to see if it will stay locked.

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. I am not sure how to reproduce this issue.

Had this happen on our server yesterday. Unlocked chest but locked crafting stations. Server admin had to go into the server settings and fix one of them. That could be your problem.
