Managed Container data path different when running file under FMS versus FMP
FMS12 running under Mac OS 10.6.8
I set the managed container file path for a database file to a location outside the FMS database directory. The database file is located in the normal FMS data directory (Macintosh HD/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/). In this example, the managed container storage path is /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/Username/Images/. With the solution opened using FMP, image data is stored in this location as expected. The Images folder has R/W access for everyone.
However, when the solution is opened using FMS, FMS views the relative path differently. Instead of storing the data at /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/Username/Images/ as expected, the managed container data is stored in the RC_Data_FMS folder within the FMS data folder, i.e. Macintosh HD/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/RC_Data_FMS/Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/Username/Images/.
Do I have incorrect syntax in the path? Is this a known issue with FMS12? I would prefer not to store images within the FMS directory as it makes generating back up schemes for the container data much simpler. Thank you for any suggestions.
