File Adapter: FTP issue

Former Member

There is a problem with the file adapter of the XI30 SP14:

It is set to get a file from a server X using a FTP protocol.


Sender Adapter v2300 for Party '', Service 'CTDCLNT600':

Configured at 2006-01-16 15:13:52 EST


- 2006-01-16 15:23:54 EST: Polling interval started. Length: 60.000 s

- 2006-01-16 15:23:54 EST: Processing finished successfully

- 2006-01-16 15:23:52 EST: Processing started

- 2006-01-16 15:22:54 EST: Polling interval started. Length: 60.000 s

- 2006-01-16 15:22:54 EST: Processing finished successfully

It seems everything is working fine, but the in the SXMB_MONI transaction, no message appears.

I have accessed the FTP manually and I have downloaded the file, so the connectivity issue is descarted.

Any suggestion.

Hi Jesus,

Since you have set the processing mode to delete, is the file getting picked up? Also check if your adapter monitoring is working fine? If not, what is the error shown there? Once you are able to get that, you can take it from there.

Hello all,

The current configuration of the Sender file adapter is:

Transfer protocol: FTP

Message protocol: File Content Conversion

Adapter Engine: Integration Server

Source Directory: /out

File: D_P.DAT

In FTP: the file D_P.DAT is placed under /out directory

Server: Server Internal IP

Port: 21

Connection security: None

User: userX

Pass: FTPuserX

Quality of Service: Exactly once

Poll Intervals: 60

Processing mode: Delete

File Type: Binary

How can I verify a log of the processing process? as the SXMB_MONI transaction does not show anything.

The most frustrating of all, is no error message appears. I have verified the XI, APPS and default trace logs with log viewer but there is nothing.

I have also checked this thread but none of the solution provide solved the issue

OS: Windows 2003

Any idea?

Please let me know if the XI system running on a unix machine ?

1)If yes, then there might be a case where xi user be having mode set to read access.

Try from the OS level for the folder you are using in the file comm. channel, execute the command

chmod 777 <folder_name>

2)is your file read only, then set process read only file.

3)what do u see in adapter monitor?

Hello Jesus.

Have you made sure the filename pattern matches that of the file on the FTP?

E.g. file on FTP is called 'order_01.xml', the filename pattern could be set to '*.xml'

just check the path once anlso check the file processing mode.keep it delete.

check connection mod. transfer mode ,and file type set them to binary preferable.

also check the source folder.

it should show an entry in moni.
