Files for Quickbooks Enterprise Server Manager storage location

We recently just switched over to Quick Books enterprise to have multiple users be able to work at the same time. After creating the server and trying to run a scan of our QBW files we got an error saying they must be stored locally yet an engineer told us that having them on a Shared so everyone can access them and they can continue to be backed up was okay to do. Is there any way to have the files remain on a Shared drive and not have them all be locally? Thanks.

The company files are best stored on a Server on the same partition where you have the Server Manager installed and running. Make sure this is true and that you have scanned for the company file.

Now on each QB Workstation:

1. Make certain Host Multi User Access is OFF.
2. Make sure you map the folder on the server (NET USE or equivalent) and NOT browsed.
3. Open QuickBooks and use the large center menu to navigate to the server folder. Do NOT use the Recent File selector.
4. Make sure you are used Multi User Mode.
