Post vb script error: Missing ; before statement Reply with quote
I am band new to this 24X7 scheduler.
I just downloaded a trial version and am trying to set up my first job.
It is a simple ftp pull job, where I want to pull all files from an FTP site to local network.
I created an job using the FTP download (using file mask) template and when I try validating the script, I get this error.
"Line 7: missing ; before statement"
No matter what I tried I can't get it to compile.
I did notice, that I can't run a simple vbscript either. I am running this on a Windows 2008 64 bit machine.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

As far as I remember "FTP download (using file mask)" template is for JAL jobs, not VBScript. There is also similar template for JavaScript.jobs.

Just in case JAL = Job Automation Language, which is one of the scripting engines supported by 24x7.

Also, are you using 24x7 Windows-only Edition (that one will be decommissioned later this year) or 24x7 Multi-platform Edition?

I thought it was vb script only b/c when looking at the script it had the Dim statements at the top of the script. Either way, whatever it is, it doesn't work. I am not using the Windows specific platform, I am using the Automation Suite (still trying to determine the difference between this and the regular scheduler) for cross platform support, but running it on Win 2008 server.

There is got to be some syntax error as a result of your input. Please post the complete script here, mask sensitive data like user/password with asterisks.

That is a pretty un-comforting suggestion, as I had created the script using the template installed together with the installation.

Below is the script (I removed all the sensitive data elements).
Thank you for your help!

Hello. The script looks fine and I can run it. Of course the FTP connection fails, but that's not what you get.

Please tell me what you got for this job in the Job Wizard step 2. What type of script is assigned to the job? If it is not JAL, set it to JAL.

1. Start 24x7 scheduler in GUI mode
2. Double-click the job to open it in the Job Wizard
3. Click the Next button to advance to step 2
4. Check the value of Script Language drop-down

Ok, perfect!
That was the issue.
Apparently by default the script type checkbox is set to Javascript. Once I changed this, this worked.

Thank you for your help!
