Is it possible to store the deployment in a different location or even on a different machine?
In the FMS admin console: Database Server area, 'Folders' tab. There you can specify up to two different locations for your data files.
These can be any hard disk in your computer, they can not be volumes on another machine (nor do you want that: too slow and fragile).
Remember that OSX is finicky about permissions so whatever folder you choose has to be set at the OS level to owner 'fmserver' of group 'fmsadmin', with the proper read and write privileges.
That can be done through Terminal, if you are not very familiar with the command line then use a tool like Batchmod to help you.
What is the underlying reason for asking? Do you want to store the actual FM files somewhere else or the executables?
We want the data files (hence databases and backups) to reside on another partition, Wim.
