Listing Files on Server

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a way to get a list of the files server by a server from within FileMaker database?

If the files are open on that guest, then the DatabaseNames function will give a return delimited list of the files.

If you're asking to get a list of *all* the files currently hosted by a FileMaker Server then there are a couple of options but none of them trivial.

You can use a remote command line to exeucte 'fmsadmin list files' on the FMS machine

Or with FMS10 you can set up a script sequence schedule to run a batch file (shell script on OSX) to use that command and have it output to a file in the FMS documents folder, the 2nd part of the script sequence would then import that text file into a FM table.

Thanks. I will have to give it a try. I am converting to 10 now and will see if I can get it to work. Thanks
