SAPFTPA from SAP Application Servers - Permission denied



Problem with SAPFTPA from SAP aplicationserver. ( release 700 )

For testing I use ABAP RSFTP006 with user, passw, host, RFC Destination SAPFTPA, and FTP command LS.

Error-message "Internal error in SAPFTP" comes up.

RFC destination SAPFTPA is created automatically, and when activating RFC trace, I can read in log that FTP user is logged in at FTP server, but error "Permission denied" comes up.

*******PART from log

[7068|] > USER SDJA

[7068|] FTP server : 331 Password required for SDJA.

[7068|] > *****

[7068|] FTP server : 230 User SDJA logged in.

[7068|] > TYPE I

[7068|] FTP server : 200 Type set to I.

[7068|] tmpfile \2

Tue Mar 17 09:36:03 2009

[7068|] FTP Stop

  • End log

Check with RSFTP005 RFC destination's is ok.

QUESTION: Where is tmpfile \2 located - is it environmentvariable ( C:\Documents and Settings\SAPServiceSID\Local Settings\Temp ) or SAP-directory DIR_TEMP.

Permissions for SAPServiceSID seems to be okay ( user can manually create files )

SAPFTPA works on developmentsystem ( same patch/kernel level ).

Firewall is checked. It is possible to run FTP client from SAP server.
