Using FTP mechanism, Is it possible to transfer the text files from File maker Server 11 to any of the other server?
360Works FTPeek :: FileMaker FTP Plugin :: Secure FileMaker FTP transfers
or MBS Plugin with the CURL functions.
The plugin includes a couple of example databases and is free to try.
Sure. You don't even need a plugin. An OS-level script can use FTP from the command line and those OS-level scripts can be run through the FMS scheduler.
I am using Windows server and so I have created a batch file to move the files to the FTP server. The batch file is working fine when it is placed in the D drive and i place those files in the location : D:\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Scripts, I ran manually and it is not at all executing which is showing the below error message " Error opening script file" where as outside the filemaker folder in the D drive, it is working fine.
Kindly help me on this.
Maybe the space between FileMaker and Server is disturbing ?
Quotation marks all around the path ?
No maybe about it. If you call something from the command line or a batch file and the path has spaces in it, you have to surround it in quotes. Otherwise CMD.exe interprets anything after the space as another parameter.
Thanks so much.
Could you please any one tell me the default username and password for scheduling the system level script in Filemaker Server 11 ?
If you don't specify an account in the schedule setup hen all schedules including the OS-level script runs as the default Windows "local system" account. That's the account you can see in the Services control panel for FMS.
"local system" - as the name implies has no rights to other systems or network resources.
See page 241 here: http://www.filemaker.com/support/product/docs/11/fms/fms11_help.pdf
Thanks so much for your information.
Does the privilege for the default account and the network account is same when we schedule the script?
I don't know what you mean...
I have been scheduling the script using my network user account. If I use the default user account can the scheduling will run successfully without any issues.
