Just curious why this script won't run via PSoS

Recommended Posts

Howdy, howdy...

I'm curious why this simple script won't run via PSoS; the script works fine when fired from a client machine. I have the "Show compatible script steps by product" set to Server--none of the steps are flagged to cause any grief, so...?

On edit: When manually triggered while in the Admin Server Console ("Run Now"), it "succeeds" but doesn't while viewing the file on a client machine.

TIA in advance for your comments.

I think you may not be aware of how server-side scripts work. Each such script is run in its own session, having its own context. A script like the one you posted, that does nothing except establish a context, accomplishes nothing as far as the client calling it is concerned - see: https://help.claris.com/en/pro-help/content/running-scripts-on-server.html

Judging from the comments, I suppose what you actually want to do here is to make the script to run at the specified interval on the client machine: https://help.claris.com/en/pro-help/content/install-ontimer-script.html. Although I am not sure your users will appreciate being taken off the current record.
