Can a server scheduled filemaker script run a subscript in a file on another fms server?

Fms logs showing error 100 (file not found) when performing subscript within a script when it is running as a scheduled fms script. I am sure I have hit this before.

 

Can someone confirm for me if when you are running your solution across multiple fms servers if a server run script can perform subscripts in files on another fms server? File ref is using FQDN for file hosted on another sever.

 

I am trying to move data from file on server that is capturing information using CWP (using script parameter - not import/export) to another fms prod server. Script is very simple... find unmoved data and loop through set putting data into a paramater, then run script in other file to extract data from param and then so on... Works fine in client but I need it to run every 30 minutes so want to set it as a scheduled task on server collecting the web data.

 

Filemaker help notes do not say that you cannot run subscripts on files hosted on another server when you are running a scheduled script but I think this is the reason for my error 100 since the scripts runs ok in client?

 

Many thanks.
