Chapter 25. FileMaker Server > Administration from the Command Line

Administration from the Command Line

So far we've looked at how to configure and administer FileMaker Server with the Server Administration Tool. But many of these tasks can be accomplished at the command line as well, with a command-line utility called fmsadmin that's installed alongside FileMaker Server. If you're comfortable at the command line, you can administer FileMaker Server without ever installing the SAT. Like the SAT, the fmsadmin tool can administer instances of FileMaker Server that are running remotely, as well as those running on the same machine.

CAUTION

This section assumes you're fairly familiar with working at the command line on your chosen platform. It assumes you have some familiarity with setting system paths, writing batch scripts, and executing scheduled tasks.
