receiver channel not invoking the .bat file

Hi ,

     I am facing difficulty in invoking a batch file from the receiver communication channel. I am using a very simple command :-

     move /-y D:\usr\sap\STP\SYS\src\PI\IN\".*"  D:\usr\sap\STP\SYS\src\PI\IN\Encrypt\*.* - the file channel is just unable to invoke this bat file placed on the server. I have asked the SAP Security people to add SAP_XI_CONFIG_FILE_OS_CMD_J2EE role on my user id.

But it still fails to invoke the batch file placed on the application layer. I am pretty much sure it is a system glitch as a command as simple as the above one is not getting invoked.

Are there any other roles which needs to be added to my id - or any specific configuration required from BASIS? I checked the PI ABAP stack in the status information and found the PI is running in Windows NT. So, the .bat file will work.

Can there be anything like - PI is on Windows NT and AL11 folders or any such application run on UNIX? - i know this is not possible but i am just thinking aloud from the configuration standpoint.

this is resolved now! - had put echo in every line and traced out the error!

used cmd.exe /C < command > - created log file to trace the error. was a good analysis - ask BASIS to give access to OS or work with BASIS to resolve any such command prompt related issues. Most of the time an experienced PI developer will do it correctly,

%F% etc was not required. Refer Michael's blog to trace out the error.!
