We are running EPM 188.8.131.52 and feeding master data from DRM to Planning via a Book.
This process has been working fine run from a client. We export the Book and DRM delivers a zip file to the client PC which we can place on the server and load.
We are now trying to automate the end to end process so are looking at using the DRM Batch Client.
If we run with "CombineExportOutput=Y" we can create a single text file no problem.
Whenever we set "CombineExportOutput=N" we can't get any export file created.
We can also run an ExportType=Export for a single file.
We really want to do is to get the same zip file with multiple dimension files inside it as we do when running from the client. How do we do this?
The manual indicates that the files created take their names from the exports but I am not sure about where this comes from.
The exports and books are set with a target of 'Client'
Our redacted config file is show below:
If you wish to combine your exports in an Export Book and wish to generate individual output files for each export,
make sure you have Provided the appropriate Path/File Name for each export( test them individually ), while Automating it apart of a BOOK, simply select the option "CombineExportOutput=False".

It appears it is not possible to make this work in the way we desire.
I don't want to hard code server side paths in each export.
The only work around I could find was to write a series of individual exports and specify the pathnames against each of these exports.
"I don't want to hard code server side paths in each export."
...that's why external connections were created. In fact, to run this successfully writing individual files from the server, you must reference an external connection from each export. Good luck.
