FMS11Adv: Databases Not Opening Automatically in Additional Database Folder

Your post

We have configured FileMaker Server 11 Advanced on MacOS X to manage files in another database folder.  However, when the Mac OS X system is restarted, the Filemaker server only automatically opens a database within the Default Database Folder location.  The Additional Database Folder is configured properly (Status: Valid path, in admin console) and the databases in this folder can be started manually using Admin Console.  The "Help" states the following on the Additional Database folder:

"At startup, FileMaker Server searches the default database folder (and in subfolders one level down) for databases to host. It also searches an optional additional database folder."

I would expect databases in the additional database folder would be opened automatically when the server starts.


Does anyone have an idea or solution?


Thank you.
