How to handle FTP failure ?

Hi all,

I am doing IDOC - XI - FTP scenario.

I want to handle FTP failure situation.

Right Now the BPM(Send step) is waiting in case of FTP failure.

Status is "in process".

a. How long it will wait ?

b. How many times it will retry ?

c. Can we control wait and retry.

In our case FTP will fail frequently & will take several hours (6-8) to recover.

Can anyone help.

Thanks in Advance.

    You can put your send step in a loop that increments an integer container variable annd exit when a certain value of your counter was reached. Use a wait step between one try and another.

    Also, a deadline branch inside a block will controll the maximun amount of time.

    Everything explained here http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/62/dcef46dae42142911c8f14ca7a7c39/content.htm
