Hello, can someone give me some advice on how to configure FM Server on OSX (if that can be done) so that I can store my files on external containers which in this case reside on a Synology NAS? I have huge data files currently residing on the NAS and I would like to use Filemaker to manage/track those data files.
I am using FM Server 14, running on OSX 10.9.5.
I did an SSH mount of the NAS on the OSX.
Then in FM Admin Console, Database Server, Folders, I define a path to the SSH mount folder, and clicked on Validate button.
FM complains that the path is not valid.
(I know that the path is "valid" because if I unmount the SSH drive so that the folder is local to the OSX machine, FM accepts the path and proceeds to upload the database and container in that local folder)
I read several posts saying that FM does not recommend putting remote containers on a network drive, but then again I read of a few instances where this seems to have been done successfully. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
