Data Separation Model - Updating Data Source

EDIT: Nevermind. Apparently it was a problem choosing the file from the server under favorites; when I went to local servers, selected the server, and then the file, everything worked fine. 




I've got a couple of solutions both using the data separation model. I was hosting all files on our server, but decided to deploy the interface files on users' local computers. For one, I downloaded the interface file, and edited the external data source from "file:databaseName" to "fmnet:/ourServer.local/databaseName". Once I did that, everything worked fine. 


I tried doing the same thing, but that didn't work. I've tried deleting the entry in external data sources and re-adding it, but even that is not working. I keep getting the error:


The file"clientMatters_data.fmp12" could not be opened. Either the host is not availabel, or the file is not available on that host."


But our server says the database is up and running. Any ideas about why I had no problem with one file and no luck at all on the second file?


Any advice is appeciated.
