Title

FileMaker Server does not accept RAM Disks as valid path

Your post

Hi,

 

Since I often have to import huge files and I wanted to increase the performace  for this, I thought of using a RAM Disk as disk to run the databse (or parts of it) from.

 

But FileMaker Server does not accept:

filemac:/RAMDISK/Folder/

as a valid path.

 

I already checked that the RAM Disk has full access privileges, so that's not the reason.

 

I also tried to open the files from the RAM Disk with FM Pro, this works fine, but it's not an option

since only parts of the Database should be stored on the RAM Disk

(I'm using the FM Server feature to use an additional folder for the RAM Disk) 

 

FM Server Adv 10

MAC OS 10.5.7

Mac Pro 8-core

 

I'd be happy to receive some input/solution for this.

 

Thanks,

Alexander
