Sender File Adapter Not Showing in Decentral Adapter Engine


We have recently implemented a Decentral Adapter Engine on a windows box. The adapter engine seems to be working fine because my adapters show and seem to work fine in it.

However, when I define a Sender File Adapter that uses File Content Conversion message protocol instead of just File messaeg protocol, the adapter does not show up in the decentral adapter engine.

I made sure that Adapter Engine parameter in the Sender File Adapter shows the new adapter engine but that does not seem to be working. If change the Adapter Enginer parameter to show the Central Adapter Engine, then I can see the Sender File Adapter on the Central Adapter engine and it works fine. (Note: The Central Adapter Engine is installed on a Unix box)

Here are the paramters I defined for the Sender File Adapter:

- Transport Protocol: File System (NFS)

- Message Protocol: File Content Conversion

- Adapter Engine: (new Adapter Name)

    When you say, the adapter does not show up, does that mean, you do not see any entry in the Adapter Monitor?


    In that case, you have to look at the log on the server, with Visual Administrator or logviewer.
