FMS CLI backup problem and hardlinks

Hi All,

I'm trying to use the CLI to do a backup to an external attached drive.  When I call the CLI  backup command the backup is placed in to the backups folder on the server.  When I use the -d path command to the attached external drive the command fails. Upon checking the attached folder's permission it list r/w for fmserver, but no Fmadmin. Is this my problem?  And if so, how do I enable FMadmin to the folder as it does not appear as a option?

Also, does the CLI backup to an attached external drive use hard links or is it a true backup which I can send offsite in case the server / building is lost?
