How to know server components configuration for files without opening the filemaker server ??
We will need a bit more info. The question is too vague to know what you are looking for.
without opening admin console , i want to know the databases opened/closed in server , or web-publishing enabled/disabled for the databases in the server . i have only one info... server ip address.
Seems like you want to open the admin console without opening it. ;-)
What problem does that solve for you to check on the server status of various components without using the tool expressly designed to do that for you?
i wanted to have a scheduler which will send email if any databases goes offline in the server.For that we need to know somehow the admin console features....
You want to use fmsadmin from the command line or terminal
FileMaker Server Command Line Reference | FileMaker
A better way to monitor is to have another server remotely check.
Thanks !! But i donot want to even remote to the server.
There is an option of fmp url BUT how to know whether all components are working or not.
A scheduled batch file that checks the file names should probably work, then you don't have to remote it.
Otherwise you can write an application to parse the FMServer log files and look for errors.
Thanks!! i am looking at java if remote system's FMServer log files can be accessed.
You can always run commando lines to see if your FileMaker Server hosted files are open, but that usually takes more time then logging into your FileMaker Server Admin Console.
You can also have a FileMaker Robot checking that a certain file is open every 5 minutes. With this you can send error message to a phone (SMS) or email to take action faster
FileMaker Robot ?? how ?
The Robot have a Scheduler that opens a FileMaker file that is local on that machine. That files then ask one or several files on your FileMaker Server to runt Script Step Open file. If it works the file on FileMaker Server will execute, if not FileMaker will give you a Error message that you can handle
Thanks !! will have a try...
If you are proficient with Java, you can use that to remotely execute something on the server. On Windows you can use the Microsoft psexec CLI tool to remotely execute the fmsadmin command lines.
All the usual caveats about security etc apply.
