Trying to run a command for fmsadmin (FMS17) on the server, triggered by a script in the solution I'm working on.
It's a backup instruction:
cmd /c fmsadmin -u username -p mypassword backup myfilename.fmp12 -k 0 -d "filewin:/C:/Program Files/FileMaker/FileMaker Server/Data/Backups/"
If I remote to the server, open command prompt and type everything starting with fmsadmin it works.
I suspect I'm not understanding how to use PSOS. Here's what I've tried:
Create a script called SaveBackup.
That script contains one step. First I tried Send event, with the string above (including cmd /c) in the text. Then I read Send Event may not work on server, so I switched to BE_ExecuteSystemCOmmand, using the same string).
Create a script called SaveBackupServer
One step - Perform Script On Server, pointing to script SaveBackup.
I tried just running SaveBackupServer like that. No backup created.
Then I realized I needed to upload script to server first. So I went to script schedules in admin panel, created a script based on SaveBackup in the hosted solution, left schedule disabled.
Tried running it from Admin Panel using Run Now as well as running it from script SaveBackupServer from client- no backup is created.
Base Elements plugin is loaded in Server and in the client.
What am I missing?
