Is there a way to catch error from the Splunk cmd window when trying to backup kvstore from batch file in windows?

Explorer

Hello Experts.

I'm trying to backup our kvstores with the well documented backup command in a windows batch file. I tried using CALL as well as START. CALL doesn't do anything. START will initiate another splunk cmd window but it closes after some seconds without any result. Is there a way to catch error from the Splunk cmd window?

Here is what I tried, with a lot of combinations.

 

set AppName=my_app
set ArchiveName=What_ever
cd %CorrectFolder% > verified by running echo %cd%
CALL splunk.exe backup kvstore -archiveName %ArchiveName% -appName %AppName%
START "title" "splunk.exe" backup kvstore -archiveName %ArchiveName% -appName %AppName%

 

Thanks in advance

Paul
