We know the serveruser have full rights to the folder in question.
This is where I would concentrate on... triple-check that you are using the correct account.
Yes, or even ... temporarily ... very temporarily ... set the privileges to the folder to read & write by all users.
Question - Wim, is this relevant: Try setting the same path as a backup path from FileMaker server ... using FileMaker Server as a testapplication. If you can not set it to be a backup path, then someting is wrong.
Good advice from both of you. We are actually running Scribe from 360Works to do the file handling here, and it may seem the problem lies there. i triple checked the privileges, and set up a backup schedule - it ran perfectly fine.
So basically, we've handled it over to 360Works to see if they are able to fix it. Thanks for the help so far.
And as for the script detailed above, it seems FMS is unable to save records outside of it's own areas (eg get(documents path)
Paffen is of course 100% right:
When using the Export Records script step or Import Records script step in a FileMaker Server scheduled script, keep the following in mind:•
Any specified file must be in the FileMaker Server Documents folder, the temporary folder, or a child folder of either the FileMaker Server Documents folder or the temporary folder. For example, the following are all valid paths for file.csv:
Any path specified that isn’t a complete path to the file (for example, anything other than
/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Documents/<0 or more directories>/<filename> ) is evaluated as being relative to the temporary path.••
For FileMaker Pro, if an absolute path is not specified in a script that will be executed from FileMaker Pro, the path is assumed to be relative to the location of the database file from which the script was run. For example, if a script containing the Export Records script step is run with the pathname file:/export.tab, and the file running the script is /MyFiles/Library/Books.fp7, the exported file will be created as /MyFiles/Library/export.tab.
