I have a folder that is registered with a hosting server in our ArcGIS Enterprise which contains file geodatabases. When analyzing the layers prior to publishing I get the message '00231 Layer's data source must be registered with server'. I have use both ArcGIS pro and ArcGIS Server Manager to register the folder location, but either way produces the same error. The folder location is a file share on a separate data server.
Is a folder share possible in a federated environment? I have successfully registered Enterprise Geodatabases in this same environment, so I'm not sure why a folder share won't work.
