Moving the FME Server System Share to Another Machine

The FME Server System Share is the location for storing Repositories and Resources. You may want to specify a new location for the System Share, and move all of its existing contents, to another networked machine.

Moving the System Share manually is a complex task that is subject to error. Instead, we recommend that you perform an upgrade operation (even if you are 'upgrading' to the same version of FME Server). At the Install procedure (after Backup and Uninstall), select a Distributed/Fault Tolerant installation. During the install, on the FME Server System Share dialog, specify the path to the new location. After reinstalling, perform a Restore.
