Opening the "DB.fp5" with FMP 6 errors out with xxx.FP5 not found. On all Mac computers.
Database was not being served with FMP Server. Was opened locally on each Mac.
Changes made in the database on one Mac was shown on all Macs?
The open command was used after opening FMP v6 on each Mac, not an Alias on the desktop?
Spotlight search on all Macs and servers does not return a zzz.fp5 database on any computer?
Installing "EasyFind" on Macs with sharing turned on and searching does not help?

Convert database with demo FMP11 found here Converting older FileMaker Pro files to the .fmp12 file format | FileMaker
I prefer last one. FM11 will show file reference clearly.
You can convert the file to a newer format, turn on the "Script Debugger" and then open the file. Press stop on the running script and go to File->Manage->External data sources and that will show you the full file path.
Unfortunately FileMaker v6 won't show the full file path if I remember right (been a few years now since I've used it).
I'll try to install FM 11 and report back.
