It does not appear possible to enter a location on a server for storage of external container files that is above or a parent to the location of the database. Even though the instructions say you can use an absolute path something like c:\Users\MyServer\MyDesktop\MyScans is not possible if MyDatabase is located like C:\Users\MyServer\MyDatabase.
Another location says:
"It can be either an absolute path, or a path relative to the database location. However, it cannot contain references to a parent folder ("/../")."
Is this a server limitation or am I missing how to do this. So far I get C:\MyServer\MyDesktop\MyScans created in the RC_Data_FMS folder which means you cannot use an absolute path as the instructions say??
