I am currently trying to enable Remote blob storage in the SharePoint 2010 environment running on windows server 2008 and the SQL server is 2008 R2 enterprise edition in a separate box. In addition to that i have a new file-server just to store all the BLOB files on it. (this is because we have many SharePoint environment running for different uses).
Does anyone knows how to enable RBSfilestreams to another server (in my case it will be to the file-server).
I tried adding the file-server path as a mapped network drive (R:), but got the following error
Msg 5135, Level 16, State 2, Line 2 The path 'R:\Blobstore' cannot be used for FILESTREAM files. For information about supported paths, see SQL Server Books Online. Msg 5009, Level 16, State 14, Line 2 One or more files listed in the statement could not be found or could not be initialized.
It would be really great if someone can help me solve this issue ASAP.
