I upgraded a FileMaker solution from FileMaker server 5.0 to FileMaker Pro 13 (Peer-To-Peer): All databases are opened 24h on one Windows-PC and the 4 other Windows-PCs are accessing it there.
How can I create a scheduled daily backup?
Either quit FileMaker in the middle of the night, copy the database files to a secure location and open the FileMaker databases again or simpy "save a copy" from inside the running FileMaker databases.
Quitting FileMaker with "TASKKILL" seems a bit brutal (Is that a secure way to close a running and shared FileMaker database? Even without the /F parameter?). I didn't find another way to gracefully quit FileMaker from the command line.
Saving a copy from inside FileMaker means scheduling a script to run every night. But how? OnTimerScript doesn't really help here.
Any ideas? This should be a problem that everyone gets who is running FileMaker in a Peer-To-Peer network.
