Sourcing 10 | FTPs connection setup issue


I'm trying to setup material replication from ERP to SAP Sourcing 10 via standard mechanism - files through FTPs.

I've configured the following:

1) Setup -> System Setup -> Integration -> File Transfer Configuration

2) Setup -> System Setup ->Scheduled Tasks

    Schedule task refers to configured in Step 1) FTPs profile "FTP Indeksy, Usługi"

I put correct XML files (representing single material) into this FTP to directory /ftp/sourcing/TST/inbound/materials

But material files does not get imported. I've observed the following in the logs:

Setup -> System Administration -> Administrative Reports -> Background Task Status

It seems, that that import mechanism is searching for that directory as if "Local Directory" option was chosen and not on the FTP profile I provided.

When I created directory (/ftp/sourcing/TST/inbound/materials) on the local filesystem - just to confirm my theory and I put file with material there, everything worked fine - material got imported.

It means, that Schedule Tasks which base on Configured Directory option (which referes to FTP profile) is being ignored, and importing mechanism keep using "Local Directory" option.

Anyone experienced same problem?
