Trigger SAP job

I have a simple file-to-file scenario, with no mapping. The data is sent through XI without using the Integration Repository. I poll an external FTP server and put the file on our SAP r/3 server (ED1).

My problem is I then want to trigger a SAP job. The SAP job has been set up as an event (SM62 & SM36 etc...)

I try to trigger the event using command (in the "run operating system command after message processing"):

sapevt FICO_3409_BANK_STATEMENT name=ED1 nr=00

XI does not error this - but nor does it trigger the job?

Can one of you experts please point me in the right direction? Should I be using a Unix shell script? And will the command above work in the Unix shell script? Where do I need to put the Unix shell script? Does it need to be on the XI server to be able to run it?
