File not available on host in FM Go

1. I am trying to develop a Database which will be a common database(Database 1) for a few other databases hosted in the same FM Server.

The idea is the user opens this common Database, authenticates and then I produce this layout with different icons for different files within the same Host.

But when I click on the icons in FM Go, I get the error ‘Host not available or File not available on that host’.

But I can clearly see the files are available in the host.


  1. 2. Also when I try to open these hosted files from FM Pro advanced, sometimes I get the error ‘The temporary File could not be created on the System disk. Use a different name, make more room on the disk or unlock it’.This issue only comes up after the first few attempts. When I close and open  FileMaker Pro Advanced, it works alright.


My FM Server and FM Pro Advanced both sit in the same machine for now.  I guess this should be the reason for the 2nd issue but have no clue why Files not available in FM Go.


What could be the best possible way to solve this..


Any help is hugely appreciated.
