Quick question regarding target directory on file adapter

I am sending to an NFS mounted directory.

The message makes it to the file adapter, but can't find the directory. I am sure it is just a syntax issue. I have triple checked the spelling, so I was curious about my format for the unix directory.

I specified it as follows: /usr/sap/interface/DXI

I specified the file name: contact.xml

Construction Mode: Create

Is my specification of the unix directory correct?

Are all the slashes correct?

If so, is there is extra config needed for the relationship between the NFS mount and XI?

The adapter framwork monitor is giving me the error:

Directory does not exist/ cannot be created

    Hi,

    Could you please specify the following details to have a better understanding of the issue?

    Is your XI installed on UNIX system?

    Is the target folder in same system where XI installed or different system?

    Are you able create any file manually into the folder /usr/sap/interface/DXI?

    Please check the folder has correct access and the user has right privilage to create the target file. If everything is fine, then try to create the file under /home/<userid>/

    <userid> -> your user profile.

    Optionally try using FTP mode to transer the input file to the target NFS mounted directory.

    In windows, it will be generally like //hostname/<SharedFolderName>/FolderName

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks,

    Sasi

      My Problem is solved, turns out that my syntax for writing to a unix directory from an XI box on Unix is correct. It is the same as writing from an ABAP program. It is case-sensitive.

      Example: /usr/datastage/tmp

      My problem was that the adapter engine was, well, whacked out. It just was acting crazy. We rebooted the UNIX server and everything started working fine again.

      typical!

    Hi,

    The directory has to be set in relation to the directory on the receiver server.

    So you need to set the drive at the start for example d:/usr/sap/interface/DXI

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards

    Colin.
