How to enter credentials with space to fmsadmin command?

Your post

I cannot install a patch to FM Server 13 on my Mac without shutting the Server off first. My problem is that the admin console is not running ( hopping the patch will address it ). I'm trying the command line with fmsadmin stop server but it will not validate my credentials. The only non-alpha-numeric symbol is a space in the username "FM Administrator".

How does that translate to the command? I've tried many different formats; double and single quotes, back slash escaping, etc. Nothing is working. 

How should I be typing that? 

Is there another way to quit the server?  I could use Kill on the server PIDs but I don't want to risk corrupting my databases.
