Server file import limitations (file name)

I ran into an interesting issue today where when a user would process a file in a FMS solution I would keep on getting an error message 100 (file does not exist).


After a bit of tooling and some googling I came across an article where someone had a similar issue.  It seems that the issue I was having was tied to the length of the file name that was trying to be processed.  The original file had 54 characters (not including extension), but FMS has a limit of only 50 characters.  I was able to test this theory by taking the same file the user was processing and killing a few characters and then the file processed as expected.   It may just be my hastyness looking for the cause, but I was not able to find any documentation around this on the FM Community.   Can anyone confirm if this is documented by FM?  If not it sure would have been nice to have something like this included in the technical documentation.
