Use owncloudcmd on Windows

I’m trying to sync files with to an owncloud server with the command line client. The cmd line client should run on a windows server. Eventually the script should run regularly without a user being logged in. The Desktop client is not the right solution because a user has to be logged in.

-Owncloud client machine: MSWindows Server 2008 R2 Standard
-A desktop client is installed on the Windows Server and running
-Owncloud Desktop Client version: 2.4.1 (build 9270)

-Owncloud server is hosted somewhere in the web (I don’t know the version)

I tired the line below but got so many errors I don’t even know what’s wrong. :slight_smile:

owncloudcmd -u username -p password Z:\folder1\folder2

What am I doing wrong?


two short notes:

It seems this is a little bit outdated, maybe you can retry with the current version 2.5.1?

I think it could make sense to post the errors you get when running the command :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks for your answer (sorry I was away from work).

The error looks as follows:
