This message indicates that the Database Reference File Maintenance Utility received an unexpected error when verifying that the directory exists.
See also messages FS189-W and FS190-W.
The backup directory-name has been added to the database reference file.
If the path and directory-name are correct, ensure that a directory of the name specified is created or made available to the Fileshare Server before starting the Fileshare Server, so that the automatic backup can take place.
If the directory does not exist or cannot be accessed, the Fileshare Server fails when trying to back up the data files or the recovery log file automatically when required to do so.
