FileMaker Server Folders won't validate
I am trying to change the Default Folder settings in FileMaker Server 9 Admin Console and it says in the Status field: "Not a valid path". Even though I know the path is correct. I am getting the same problem with the Use additional database folder and the Backup Folder setting. If I press the Validate button nothing seems to happen and the Status stays the same. When I try to save the settings I get the message "There is an error with the configuration values entered. Please see the highlighted fields for details." It doesn't seem to matter what I enter the path is never accepted as valid. I want to have
Use additional database folder: filewin:/e:/FM_database
Backup Folder: filewin:/e:/FMBackups
I have checked the system user (which is the one the FileMaker Server service logs on as) has full control permissions to these folders. The strange this is that the additional folder was already specified before but it won't let me save it now.
Background: This came about because I was trying to upload a new database into FileMaker Server 9 on SBS2003 and I got the message "One or more of your destination folders does not have enough space or the specified upload or it does not exist." However the folder does exist and there is more than enough space on the drive.
Can you help please?
I have now managed to get it working.
I ensured that the SYSTEM account has modify permissions to the database folders and restarted the FileMaker service and it all seems fine now. The paths are showing as valid but I haven't dared risk pressing validate again.
