Help - IFC export fails on OS X with network homes

Not applicable
Hi there,

We're using OS X Server 10.6.8 in combination with network home directories. Everything works fine, except the IFC export.

We're trying the following:

1. Save any file as ICF 2x2
2. Edit Options/Preferences of this Plugin

Whenever we try anything oh the above as being logged in as network use, the task fails with the following error:

EDM Error - Code:0 - <Fatal Internal Error>

When we are logged in as a local user, everything works fine. I've found the following in this thread:

It seems to be the same error more or less; but without network homes. In the following threads
(we deleted the folder and checked permissions)

It seems that the Path to the EDMDB-Folder path is too long; with a network home it is:

/Network/Servers/ Support/Graphisoft/EDMDB

then we get the error.

/Users/heinz/Library/Application Support/Graphisoft/EDMDB

then everything is ok.

I know that the path should not be longer than 127bytes (please see; I think it is not, but it has to be the problem. We tried to set a folder redirection and hard links to the local path - nothing helps 😞((

Does anyone know what to do? How can we change the path for EDMDB-folder? Or what else can we do? Archicad just has to work with network homes!!! 😞

Thanks for any suggestion!!!
All the best,
