We are on PI 7.11 SP6 and use CTS transport to move objects across PI landscape. Our project utilizes a large number of file comm channels. We are using the option "Archive Faulty Source Files" and specify the archive directory.
The problem we face during transport is, this value for the archive directory is lost when the channel is imported into a new environment and hence ativation of the object will fail unless we manually edit it, save it and activate it.
To make the problems worse, SAP has come up with a "feature" that activates the object directly upon import. The import fails because the channel does not have the archive directory value. We have now requested the BASIS team to disable this "auto activation" feature and then do the import.
I am still wondering why would SAP come up with this feature... The User Name/pwd and other attributes are env specific and we are not supposed to activate a channel with incorrect values.
Any one faced this? If so, do you think this feature is useful to you in any way?
