Archiving: Storage in FILESERVER: tx OAC0
I am archiving Business Partner Change Documents in SARA.
The WRITE and DELETE works properly, however I have problems with the STORAGE.
I have been asked to store the archived files in the FILESYSTEM.
Looking into tx OAC0 I find an entry for FILESYSTEM, but not sure if the values are correct:
Document Area: FILESYSTEM File System
Storage Type: 03 SAP System Database
Version NO. 46
Contents Table: FSYSCONT
Transfer direct: /usr/sap/int/archive
Putput Device: LOCL
If I go to Customizing in TX SARA "Customizing view for Archiving" I see that I can make a configuration in
Content Repository: If I open the matchcode it offers me OT - Open Text (that system I must not use according to the customer)
No other values is provided in the matchcode.
I can write manually FILESYSTEM and store it, but since it is not proposed by the matchcode, I have the impression, that in some transaction I have to enable FILESYSTEM, so that it will appear in this matchcode.
I run the Deletion with Storage and get the error:
Step 001 started (program RSARCH_STORE_FILE, variant , user )
Archive file 000038-001CHANGEDOCU is being processed
Archive file 000038-001CHANGEDOCU does not exist
Error occured when checking the stored archive file 000038-001CHANGEDOCU
Job cancelled after system exception ERROR_MESSAGE
I have the impression that I have to customize the FILESYSTEM in tx OAC2 and / or OAC3, but l have no idea with which values.

transaction SARA will put the archive files in the file system by default. So in this case there is no need to run the storage phase. The storage phase is used when you want to store the archive files in an external content server. All you have to do in this case is customize the 'Logical File Name' and 'Global Path' properly in order to send the archive files to the file system that you want. The note 35992 will help you.
Regarding the FILESYSTEM document area, this is intended for other uses, not to send the files to the file system. According to your customizing in OAC0, the files will be stored in the SAP Database, which makes no sense. In any case, and as said before, setting up OAC0 is not necessary if you want to keep the archive files in the file system.
