      Container Field File reference Paths Lost on New Server

      Post

      Working with a client to support a solution created by a previous developer.  The hosted FM 10 database has records with container fields that had images stored as file references.

       

      The PC server that originally hosted the FM server 10 app has been replaced with a new box. Despite the shared folder named "images" being restored on the new box, the FM database is not finding the images. I'm assuming it's a simple matter of the file paths' having been changed.

       

      Short of manually "re-linking" each image (there's 1200 of them), is there any batch script that can re-establish the proper link? The whole absolute/relative/ path "thing" has never been very clear to me.

       

      Appreciate any tips on correcting this path issue.
