sharing a database that's on a network drive?

Your post

I have been using FMP11 to share a database that's on a network drive but have ben having problems with the file being corrupted. From what I've read, the solution would be to store the file locally.

Will FMP Server allow me to keep the file on the network drive and share it reliably?

When I tried uploading a database with the demo version of Server, I got a warning that the file might be locked, read-only or in use (even though it's not.)

If the file needs to be local, I'm not sure what the advantage of Server is over just sharing it with FMP.
