Communication Channel Question

What will happen if in the configuration of the communication channel, you provided a URL for the target directory and at the same time you checked the radio button "create target directory"?

Is it really possible for XI to identify which target directory it will use?

I had a case wherein in the configuration of the comm channel, the target directory was provided and at the same time the radio button "create target directory" was also enabled. Then considering that all other entries in the the comm channel are correct, my comm channel went inactive. Is it possible that the cause as to why the comm channel went inactive is because XI could have mixed up the choices of target directory? Whether it will follow the URL I provided or whether it will create a target directory....

Hope you guys can help me..

Thank you so much in advance.

Cheers,

Grace

    Simply if that Directory is not present, it will create the dir with that name.

    Also, due to Error in target side or even in XI side Communication Channel never went into Inactive state.

      Target Tab Page

      File Access Parameters

      Specify the Target Directory in which the documents are to be saved.

      You can enter variables for the target directory. The variables must be enclosed by % characters.

      c:/temp/local/%var1%

      If the adapter is to create the target directory if it does not already exist, select Create Target Directory.

      If the indicator is not set and the target directory does not already exist, the adapter returns an error.

      Specify the File Name Scheme that the system is to use to save the first incoming document.

      You can enter variables for the file name scheme. The variables must be enclosed by % characters.
