Thanks for verifying this for me Steven. I'm glad you are seeing it work. It's really the strangest thing.
The issue seems to be with the " > outfile.txt" portion of the command.
The actual command is running a query on a verticalDB and dumping the result. The EXACT command run from the command line runs just fine.
Even if I use the simple cat command to and out file as just a simple test case... The file is created with zero bytes (see below)... but its as if python moves on or gets an 0 exit code after the first part of the cmd is executed and no data is written.

Any thoughts as to why on my end this may happen?
