I use an older version of Server. It appears that server 13 has the same limitation--server backup schedules only back up to local drive locations--an irritating limitation.
If that's still the case, the work around is to back up to a local drive location and then use either a system script or 3rd party back up software to copy the back up copy to the remote location. I managed to set up VB Scripts to do the file copy for me. I actually have two servers running FileMaker server and each uses vb scripts to copy the night's back up file to a folder on the other computer where they are kept in the server folder, but closed so that I can do a kind of "Manual fail over" to run both systems on the same server in case of emergency by using the admin console to open these back up files.
Note: I could not use a Server Schedule to perform the VB Scripts with my version of server (10). I had to use WIndows Scheduled Tasks to run the VB Scripts on schedule.
Very Interesting....sounds like you might be right. I am going to do some more research...thank you for the reply
Well I did more research and you are exactly right. You can't backup from Filemaker Server to another computer...Here is the link I found if anyone is interested.
