Summary

FileMaker Server FMS 10 schedule back up error 494

Description of the issue

Testing schedule back up after installing et configuring FileMaker Server 10 (on a new server machine) result in a error 494The destination folder, with the timestamp is created but the file to back-up isn't copied in.The log viewer reports (the french version of FMS is used) :Erreur 494 Sauvegarde abandonnée. Destination de sauvegarde non valide : "filewin:/F:/Back-up horaire volatile_2009-05-14_0745/E:/Bases de donnés serveur birdy principal/Dons.fp7".That means "back-up not fulfilled. Destination path not valid..."Strangely the destination path reported is the concatenation of the destination path and the path of the file to back-up (original file path). Is it a bug in the log formulation ? Or Filemaker Server is it really trying to use this filepath that doesn't make sense ? I've think about a folder's permissions problem but strangely filemaker is able to create the folde. So why should not it be able to write the file. Choosing the "C:"partition or "E:", a dedicated back-up partition doesn't change anything to the issue The configuration is Xeon based server machine under MS Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2. This issue prevent me to deploy filemaker server. Thanks by advance for help.
