Problem in Archiving File From FTP Server to XI File Server Using FCC

Hi,

The scenario is file to IDOc. XI has to read the input file from client FTP server and archive it to XI local file server. Archiving on XI server is working fine without FCC (for xml files). But with FCC, the sender FTP adapter is archiving empty files (0 kb files).

I've checked SXMB_MONI, even there I can see the file data and the IDoc is getting posted with proper data. But, the archived file is empty. Not sure about the problem.

Please suggest. Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Joe.

    Hi,

    File adapter has the functionality which support the empty file handling.

    Handling of Empty Files

    Specify how empty files (length 0 bytes) are to be handled.

    ○ Do Not Create Message

    No XI messages are created from empty files.

    The files are processed according to the selected Processing Mode.

    For example, if the processing mode is Delete, empty files are deleted in the source directory.

    ○ Process Empty Files

    XI messages are created with an empty main payload.

    The files are processed according to the selected Processing Mode.

    ○ Skip Empty Files

    No XI messages are created from empty files.

    Empty files are skipped and remain in the source directory.

    Hi,

    Set the file processing mode in the sender communication channel (File adapter ) as archive.And mention the archive directory too.

    This will solve the purpose.
