CLI Compliance Export Failing

I have the Mattermost server running in high availability on two EC2 machines as a service.
I would like to use the compliance export Beta feature but would like more frequent that once a day if possible.
I thought about scheduling the cli command, however when i run the cli command, it tries to start a new server, on which it fails (the logs are successfully posted to S3 if i include a timestamp but not registered in the system console as an export job having completed) as it tries to create the ./plugin directory.
I have these in S3 normally. Is this normal behaviour of the cli? I am using the database to store my config and have passed this is as a flag.

Has anyone had any experience with this?
