External container issue in Server 12 on Mac.

Your post

     I'm trying to put a database up on Server 12 on a Mac.

     The database has about 450,000 records in two tables (one has about 15,000 then other has 435,000).

     Each table has a container field that holds a PDF file. I've managed to convert it from having the PDF embedded in the file to using a reference (that was quite a chore, it took me a couple of weeks to figure out how to do it due to limitations in FM Pro's automatic conversion process, but that's another story).

     However, the issue I'm having is that I can't seem to get the database into Server in a usable way. If I try to upload the database to the server, the admin app crashes. So, I'm trying to manually move the database over to the Server's folder and try to put the folders that contain the actual image files into the RC_Data_FMS folder, everything works fine as long as I'm on the same machine as the Server, either through Server or local only. However, when I try to open the database on a remote client, instead of the image that should be in the container, I get a message that "The file can not be found: blahblah.pdf".

     Any ideas on what I can look at to figure out what the issue is? I've checked the container info to make sure it's using the correct path to the files and everything looks OK.
