    FMS14 external container UNC path

    ctgraham

      I have been asked to modify a database hosted on Filemaker Server 14 to use a container with an open external storage location on an UNC path.

       

      I've seen discussions which indicate this is not possible in prior FMS versions:

      http://fmforums.com/topic/84009-external-container-storage-file-path/

      https://community.filemaker.com/thread/69181?start=0&tstart=0

      These suggest that FMS external containers must store to relative paths.

       

      There is also a FMS14 specific conversation which suggests that an network path is not possible, but an absolute path on the server might be:

      Filemaker Server Containor Locations - FileMaker 14 Server - FMForums.com

       

      Can someone point to an authoritative answer regarding whether FMS14 can use a UNC path for for external storage?

       

      Thanks!
