Remote Database Creation Error


Has anyone seen an error when createing or re-snaphotting a remtoe database that says:


Failed to re-snapshot database "xxxxxx" The requested operation cannot be performed on a file with user-mapped section opened


Any ideas as to cause.


Thank you.

Re: Remote Database Creation Error

Are you trying to create/restore a database on a mapped drive?

If so, then it will fail, since an ACT! database can only be created or restored on a local resource, and then shared.

Try adding exclusions in your ant-virus for your database and database files folder.
