FMP15 Backward Relationship Error

Product and version

 

FileMaker Pro 15.0.1

FileMaker Server 14.0.4.414

 

 

OS and version

 

Mac OS X 10.11.4

 

 

Hardware

 

iMac (21.5-inch)

 

 

Description

 

When I try to open a served multi-file solution, that have bidirectional relationships (main->related in the main file & related->main in the related file), with FMP15 launched on the same Mac that serves the files, it shows the following error message:

 

The temporary file “FMS_76E830F686A28BD56FEDAA83DCBF450C.fch” could not be created on the system disk.  Use a different name, make more room on the disk, or unlock it.

 

While that file is created in the folder ~/Library/Caches/FileMaker/DBCache/… and opened by FileMaker Pro.app

 

It seems to occur when I launch FMP 15 Client for Mac OS X on FM Server machine only.

 

 

How to replicate

 

Launch FMP 15 for Mac OS X on FM Server machine, open some served solution that has two or more related files, and try to define any backward relationship (related->main) in the related file.

 

 

Workaround

 

Replace .local name of the host with it's IP address in the Open Remote File dialog.

 

Or add additional references to the existing External Data Sources in the form of FileMaker Network file path format:

 

file:<fileName>

fmnet:/<hostIPAddress>/<fileName>

 

Or even better:

 

file:<fileName>

fmnet:/localhost/<fileName>
