FM Server Additional Folder Invalid path

Here's the issue:

 

FMS 15 installed on MacPro (OS 10.11.6) System Drive.

 

I have three additional internal drives and I want to create an additional folder on one of these.  This drive is local and internal.  It is named "MediaFCP"  I have created on MediaFCP these folders:  FileMakerServer/Data/

 

Permissions on all folders give read & write to group fmsadmin and user fmserver

 

The path I enter is filemac:/MediaFCP/FileMakerServer/Data/

 

I can not get it to validate.

 

Read a bunch of threads and the FM help docs.  It seems I am still missing something.

 

I would like to run the server from my system drive, but keep the data on a second drive as I assume this is more efficient and keeps the system drive from getting bogged down.

 

What am I doing wrong?
