Container Field External Storage Path

Container Field External Storage Path


     I'm wanting to move my external container field storage to a new thunderbolt drive attached to the server.  I've successfully created the storage paths for two fields on the drive while wiring with the file on the server.  Once I quit FMPA 13 on the server and started FMS back up, the pdf file are shown missing on connected clients.  

     The external paths were set up as follows:

     /Volumes/ADM G-Raid/Case_Documents/

     This worked and I was able to store files in the container fields and saw that they were being stored on the external drive.

     After closing and opening with a client, the path now indicates as follows:

     [hosted location]/Volumes/ADM G-Raid/Case_Documents/

     The file indicates a missing pdf.

     I'm assuming  the path is not set up correctly for connected clients and that is why it is changing to the hosted location.

     I'm looking to set the path to the external drive due to the massive storage I will be using in the future.

     Any suggestions would be helpful.
