Moving a lot of related files to a new server
We are moving our Filemaker system to a new server. We use Filemaker Server and Filemaker Pro, both v10 now. We are concerned that the Open File script step will break in the file scrips as it references the server ip address to locate a file (is this right?). Is there a way to preserve the scripts and what they point to when the files are moved? My understanding is that relationships are preserved as long as the file structure is the same but am not sure in the case of files held on Filemaker Server.
If the files reference each other on the same server then you shouldnt have an issue as long as they are referenced locally such as:
Otherwise, double check your file references in your file. If this happens ever few years, then you may want to switch to using a DNS instead of the IP.
