Fast Export exit code(12)


Lately during data extraction I noticed in logs that fast export kept returning exit code 12 with no message:

[2018-12-11_16:12:11] JOB WEBCHAT_Interaction: ERROR: on cmd: fexp (returns 12)

I can't find anywhere what does this error code mean.

Can someone help me identify what's causing the error?

Re: Fast Export exit code(12)

This appears to be a message from some job scheduler that the fexp command ended with return code 12 - which only tells you that "something" happened that was considered a "Severe Error". You would need to look at the stdout/stderr from fexp to figure out the reason.
