Server Scripts / Backup Schedules: no feedback on progress shown in admin console

Did anybody else encounter the above mentioned behaviour?

I've set up a FMServer 19.3.1 on a new Apple M1 16GB/512GB hosting 40+ files in different directories related to different projects.

For every directory in the servers database directory I have a scheduled backup that is deactivated. Whenever I wish to push the files to the customer for further testing I trigger the schedule manually and copy the file(s) from the backup location.

On the admin console these schedules seem to run for ever (triggered locally or from a remote machine).

If I reload the admin console via browser (Safari on Catalina and Big Sur), its shown as "in progress"

If I relogin to the admin console they are sometimes shown as completed.

If I look it up in the Event.log I have the usual entries (schedule started, 146, 774, 458, databased halted 769, backup completed 460, schedule completed 150) all within a second as shown via timestamp

Seems to be at least a glitch and I could perfectly do without :slight_smile:

I have seen that as well, toggling the Enable switch will refresh the status.


my experience with the admin console in regards of log entries matches yours. No updates until I log out and re-login again. I posted my observation in the Claris Community ..

I think it is Interactive Log in FMS19.3 on Windows 2016 Server takes minutes to update log entries for "live" display.

We’ve also seen this behaviour in the Windows admin console.

to add to this:
Installed FMS on Ubuntu LTS 18.04 and had the same issues: the event log shows that the backup has been successfully done but the admin console stays "in progress" forever

The state can be ended by toggling the deactivate/activate slider/trigger/button.
