Occasional FileMaker Server 16 Write Error on Scheduled Script

Has anyone experienced random error 800 write errors from a scheduled script in FileMaker Server 16 running on Windows 2012 R2?


We've a simple script that generates a report, exports to a PDF in the (server) temporary folder then emails with the PDF as an attachment on a nightly basis. This has run for months successfully since we upgraded to FMS16, except for 1 night, but then rectified itself. The file name is consistent, no special characters and the only thing that changes is a date suffix in ddmmyy format ('Fitter Allocation 200218.pdf').


I'm hoping this is a red herring, but we updated to v16.0.4 on Saturday on our Windows 2012 R2 server and the 2 nights since the 800 error is logged and an email without the attachment is sent.


The script runs fine from FMP16 and we've just rerun the script from schedules in admin console this morning and again it has run fine producing the email with the attachment.


We're not overlapping schedules, although we have now provided a little bit more time between the previous and next schedules.


Would appreciate any helpful comments.
