Failover solution for Sender File Adapter (FTP)

Hi guys,

I have a scenario FTP->Idoc. Is it possible within PI to create a functionality, that if a connection to one FTP fails, it will switch to another FTP?

Thank you,

Peter

    Hello

    you can achieve this by the help of BPM .

    by intorducing a another send step in exception branch which will send the file to another FTP .

    Hi,

    You may maintain two seperate Sender adapters with seperate FTP server and fix the polling interval to sequence the calling of file.

    But if the file is available on both the FTP servers then there will be two calls always.

    So you need to maintain the file in any one of the FTP server.

    But this is just the manipulation, not the precise solution. You may go for BPM also

    In communication channel there is no such feasibility. Probably you may need to go for customized adapter modules.

    Thanks

    U may configure ur BPm in this manner. A receive step to receive the data from ur first FTP. Then a wait step which has time duration more that the polling interval of the file CC. In case the msg is not received (container is empty), then use another receive step (2nd FTP). However, this apporoach has a problem that if the file is not present at the location then also it will start with the.
