I'm struggling with launching scripts from FileMaker 16 Server Schedule

Recommended Posts

$ exa -lT /Library/FileMaker\ Server/Data/Scripts/
drwxrwxr-x    - fmserver       7 Jan 16:20 /Library/FileMaker\ Server/Data/Scripts/
.rwxrwxr-x   48 fmserver       7 Jan 16:20 └── timestamptotmp.sh

here is the content of the script:
 

$ cat timestamptotmp.sh
#!/bin/bash

echo $( date ) >> /tmp/timestamp.txt

The script runs fine as user fmserver when ran from command line and as any other user on the system as follows:
 

sudo su
su fmserver

/Library/FileMaker\ Server/Data/Scripts/timestamptotmp.sh
/Library/FileMaker\ Server/Data/Scripts/timestamptotmp.sh
/Library/FileMaker\ Server/Data/Scripts/timestamptotmp.sh
/Library/FileMaker\ Server/Data/Scripts/timestamptotmp.sh
/Library/FileMaker\ Server/Data/Scripts/timestamptotmp.sh
$exa -lT /tmp/
drwxrwxrwt   - root           7 Jan 16:31 /tmp
.rw-r--r-- 140 fmserver       7 Jan 16:46 └── timestamp.txt


 

$ tail -f /tmp/timestamp.txt
Mon Jan 7 16:31:22 CET 2019
Mon Jan 7 16:46:40 CET 2019
Mon Jan 7 16:46:44 CET 2019
Mon Jan 7 16:46:47 CET 2019
Mon Jan 7 16:46:55 CET 2019

When I try to run this script from the scheduler the error is "User Aborted" for type System Script; and "Script is Missing or is invalid" when ran as part of a Script Sequence.

Anyone with experience in this? I have solved the issue "User Aborted" `chmod 777 /Library/FileMaker\ Server/Data/Scripts/` So I can run some "System Script"s, but for "Script Sequence" the same scripts that runs as "System Scripts" does not run.

I suspect wrong error message.

I find no details in FileMaker Server console logs, and`tail -f /var/log/system.log` also has no more info.

However here I find the actual error:
 

$ tail -f /Library/FileMaker\ Server/Logs/stderr
fmshelper: failed to exec() '/Volumes/FMTestServer/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Scripts/timestamptotmp.sh', error Exec format error

      Hi,
      I have a performance conundrum that I have not been able to figure out for the past month and a half or so and am looking here for some guidance. 
      We have a 9-year old FM system that we run our entire Production operation on. We have approximately 150 users in 9 locations across the US and Canada for this solution.
      We have a Windows Server 2012 VM with 14 CPU Cores, 60GB RAM, and an SSD Array SAN that we run our Production Server on. We have separate Drives configured for the Operating System and Data. All users not in the facility housing the server use Remote Desktop to access the system.
      The design of this system is not optimal for performance, but it has been running very well for the last 2 years (until early February 2020).
      In early February, it began to stall no matter what we did when we had more than 120 users or so connected and working normally.
      We identified several severely taxing actions, mainly Finds on related tables with millions of records, and eliminated those. No luck.
      We added unnecessary extra CPUs, RAM, and Disk space to no avail.
      We created a completely new VM with a fresh install of FM Server 16. No love.
      Finally in desperation, we moved the server to older, slower hardware with non-SSD hard drive array and voila! the system works fine again.
      This older VM is similar in every other way: Windows Server 2012, 14(slower) CPU Cores, 60GB(slower)RAM, FastSCSI Disk Array.
      As an anti-bonus, in thinking this would be temporary, we have both the OS and the Data on a single C drive on this older hardware.
      It works splendidly on this lesser setup.
      We had all variety of hardware experts in to make sure the newer/faster setup was performing correctly. We updated all firmware and restarted the whole setup. 
      All benchmark tests show the newer system to be considerably faster in all phases, especially Disk.
      We have no problems with any other VMs on this newer/faster setup(including some less intensive Filemaker Servers).
      The one thing that occurs on the newer/faster machine that DOES NOT happen on the older/slower one, is that it stalls and the Disk is consumed by writing tons of data to FMTEMPFM* files for an extended period of time while there is no increase in data being written to the .fmp12 files.
      This particular FM Server and dataset is the only one that this happens to. We have two other FM Servers on there that have 200 plus users 24 hours a day and nary an issue.
      Does anyone know what is happening when the Disk Monitor shows the System Process is writing tons of data to FMTEMPFM files and not writing any more data than normal to the .fmp12 files?
      Thanks in advance for any guidance.

      When opining the FMS localhost I try to enable the ScriptMaster Plugin. 
      For some reason I click to enable the plugin, I sometime been able to click on save sometime..
      However, each time I close the host reopen the FMS localhost, the plugin is ALWAYS disabled.
      Would someone have an idea?
      With regards!

      What's the latest version of FMP / FMPA that gets along well w FMS16?
      I'm in a workplace where I have access to version upgrades, but we're working with files hosted on Server v16.

      We're running FMS 16.0.4 on Windows Server 2012 R2 and Java 8 U181 and everything is fine. Unfortunately our IT security people want me to take Java to v8 U201 and I've been caught by Java updates breaking control of FMS in the past.
      Does anybody have any experience on using FMS 16.0.4 and Java v8 U201?
      Thanks.
