FMS 12 OS X Command Line DISCONNECT Bug
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
The expected result would be a list of all the users kicked out of the database(s).
The fmsadmin HELP DISCONNECT information is displayed instead.
