File to file scenario

Hi guys,

I have only XI server..i dont have FTP server setup.

I would like to test different kind of scenarios of file -file using XI server only.

I heard that we can use NFS and then check the result.

Please help me here.

Cheers,

Karthick

    HI,

    just create a CC type FTP, select NFS protocol instead of FTP in the comm channel (int directory) and from there , you can specify local directories from which you can get or post files.

    Hope it helps,

    David

      Hi Karthik,

      In the communication channel select the Transport protocol as an NFS and then provide the Source/Target Directory name.

      After developing the scenario you can test the scenario by placing the files in the Source directory which is mentioned in the communication channel.

      If the PI server is running in the different mechine then you have to place the files in the SAP Application server folders the same thing you need to mention in the communication channel.

    Hi Karthik,

    In your file communication channel select NFS instead of FTP and upload the file in your application server from local system using Tcode SXDA_TOOLS.

    Object type: DXPROJECT

    Program type : BAPI

    PROGRAM: CREATE and then click on COPY and specify yiour source/target directory/file.

    and then in file adapter provide the same directory path and the filename as uploaded. and also in your receiver file CC provide some target directory and check by Tcode AL11 in XI whether file has been sent to target directory.

    Thanks!

    Well, the best approach is to tcode AL11 chose your dir name, copy it and paste in you CC.

    Now use SXDA_TOOLS to upload the test file in the same dir.

    If your sourc or target dir is not working properly (if the file is not being deleted or created) then there might be an issue with authorization of that particular dir. In that case check with you BASIS or you can chose some other dir for testing.
