    FMS 12 OS X Command Line DISCONNECT Bug



      FMS 12 OS X Command Line DISCONNECT Bug


      FileMaker Server



      Operating system version

      OS X 10.8.2

      Description of the issue

      Trying to use the Terminal command line to control FileMaker Server. Specifically using:

      fmsadmin DISCONNECT -fy -uXXX -pXXX

      X is hidden for security reasons. It's obviously the user name and password for our FMS installation.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Using this command line returns the fmsadmin HELP information for the DISCONNECT code. I even logged into a database on the server to make sure it would actually disconnect me. According to the documentation if I did not supply the user ID it would disconnect all users. When I check my user ID (3) I tried

      fmssadmin DISCONNECT 3 -fy -uXXX -pXXX

      That didn't work either

      Expected result

      The expected result would be a list of all the users kicked out of the database(s).

      Actual result

      The fmsadmin HELP DISCONNECT information is displayed instead.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

          fmsadmin is the command line tool to administer the Database Server
          component of FileMaker Server installed on the local machine.

          You can script many tasks with fmsadmin by using a scripting language
          that allows execution of shell or terminal commands.

          fmsadmin HELP COMMANDS
             Lists available commands

          fmsadmin HELP [COMMAND]
             Displays help on the specified COMMAND

          fmsadmin HELP OPTIONS
             Lists available options
