Archive faulty files on NFS


We have a File (FTP with content conversion) to proxy scenario where we need to archive the source files in an error directory in case it fails in content conversion.

The transport protocol is FTP with file content conversion and in the modules tab we have used AF_Modules/MessageTransformBean with Transform.PermanentErrors set to true.

Now we have to archive the faulty files not on the ftp but on a folder mounted on the adapter engine. The user has all the required authorizations and in fact when we use the same folder inthe archive path with a correct file, the file gets archived in the folder path on the PI server.

However, when we test with a file that fails in content conversion, PI is unable to archive this same file on the above mentioned folder and gives the error that Access is denied. (even though the correct files get archived on it, so no issue with the folder mounting). We have the option "Archive files on FTP server" unchecked.

However, when we check the option Archive files on FTP server and provide a path on the ftp server itself, the faulty files gets archived to the path.

We have already been through all the help documents and scn posts but there is no absolute answer on this.

have also tested with the Add Timestamp option checked and unchecked and it gives the same error for both cases.

The question is, does this option of archiving the faulty files only work when the fault directory is also on the ftp server?




I raised this to SAP and they have replied that the feature of archiving on NFS when using FTP protocol is still not available.
