There are some external vendors we FTP files to their servers. Some of the vendor's folder names are: 

/ExternalServer/Data.in

/ExternalServer/Data.out

 

In our existing scheduling system, we have the jobs configured as: 

Copy /InternalServer/Folder/File.dat to /ExternalServer/Data.in

 

However, as we converted the above to Automic RA FTP job and tested it, the below error is thrown. 

 2018-05-09 17:47:05             Copying from CONN.FTPAGENT.INTERNAL to CONN.FTPAGENT.EXTERNAL

2018-05-09 17:47:05             copy /NPD/SALE1064.dat to /NPD/express/data.in

4: File cannot replace a directory.

 

We updated the job to: 

Copy /InternalServer/Folder/File.dat to /ExternalServer/Data.in/File.dat 

and successfully test the transfer. 

 

However, not all scenarios are based on single named file. Some of the jobs are 

Copy /InternalServer/Folder/*.dat to /ExternalServer/Data.in

 

How do we get around this without having to have the vendors updated their folder names? is there a solution? 

 

Thanks, 

Kesavan
