Can't edit restrictions on restricted pages even as space admin

I can't edit page restrictions even though I am admin to the space. I have a checkbox beside admin and beside edit page restrictions but if I am restricted on the page, I can't edit the page restrictions. I am aware that the documentation says I should be able to. I am also aware of the following question: But the question is for Confluence cloud and I am running Confluence Server and there are no technical information on how to "run content indexing" or if it would solve my issue.

Confluence 6.1.0

what happens, when you click in the space tools on the page name? 

I get the regular restricted access page where I can’t change permissions.

Since a reindex solved it in Cloud, please try reindexing from this guide: Content Index Administration and if that doesn't work, rebuilding the content indexes from scratch as described in How to Rebuild the Content Indexes From Scratch on Confluence Server

If you are a space admin and not a system administrator you may not have access to the admin console to reindex, but hopefully there is an administrator who can run the reindex on your behalf.

Unfortunately, my admin tried both reindex and the problem is still here.
