Running FM7 Scripts on FM7 Server? Is it possible?

I'm trying to figure out if I can run a FM script made with scriptmaker on Server to perform regular maintenance tasks of the database. For example, perform a automated export to email every 2 weeks etc. (This is just an example there will be more things coming up).

There is a "Scripts" section in the scheduler of FM Server 7, however that appears to only perform OS level scripts such as appletalk or perl etc. Heck I don't even know if Server 7 CAN execute scripts..

Anything you could throw at me would be great, at the moment I'm banging my head against a wall. The documentation is lacking and no amount of googling seems to give me an exact answer.

Thanks

Tim

This is something that FM Server 6 and 7 have in common, neither has the ScriptMaker functionality of the client versions of FM (you can't write/run ScriptMaker scripts on Server). The "scripts" referred to on Server are system level operations (AppleScript, etc.).
