    Server Backup to UNC network path (not drive letter - Windows)

    paul_tuckey

      Im guessing this is one for this is one for Windows server admins but enlightenment from any source will be much appreciated.

      I would like to schedule FileMaker Server 14 backups to our File & Print server which sits on the same network.


      Is it possible to backup my databases to the UNC file path here...

      \\myFPserver\FMBackup\Filemaker\ 


      Using a path that looks something like this

      filewin:/myFPserver/FMBackup/Filemaker/


      All the UNC path variations I have tried do not validate.

      Im guessing UNC paths are not supported and we are still stuck having to map and use drive names?


      Thanks
