Cannot set the "Additional database folder path" to a remote location. The server refuses to make the change. We have tried creating a symbolic link and a mapped network drive. This was not an issue with Filemaker Server 2015 or 2016.

How to replicate

See above.

Workaround (if any)

Currently we set a local file path, but that is not a long term solution as our filemaker server is almost out of storage.
