Info Spoke - Process Chain - OS Command usage help

I am new to BW. My requirement is to extract the master data off of BW data targets on a weekly basis and ftp the files onto a different server.

To meet this requirement, I am planning to create InfoSpoke(s), put it in a Process chain and using the OS Command ftp the files to different server.

Is this the right way to do it or are there any better ways? If it is, I need help on where to give the target server name, user_id and PSW in the OS Command variant of Process Chain.

Also, is it possible to schedule a Infospoke directly from the scheduler (Auotsys...) and still execute weekly/monthly?

Thanks for your help in advance

    The OS Command usage is very easy to use. I'd recommend using the rcp (remote copy) or scp (Secure copy) command if you're moving between two environments. The rcp command like would be something like:

    rcp sidadm@host1:/usr/sap/SID/testfile si2adm@host2:/usr/sap/SI2/testfile

    Talk to your administrator as they'll know which of the two commands they'll need to set up. Also, if UNIX, as if you can set up a .rhosts file if you'll be FTPing frequently. They might now like that but it'll start the conversation on an easy way to set it up.

      Thanks for your reply Bill.

      Do I need to add the rcp/scp command with source and target file names in SM49/SM69 transactions and assign a name to it and mention that name in the System Command section in the OS Command of process chain? or am I missing anything here?

      Thanks for your help

    Hello Experts:

    1. Where do I actually need to write the rcp/scp commands with source and target file names. I am assuming may be in SM49/SM69 and use the command name in "System Command".

    2. When I am sending to a different server: Where do I write the login and psw for that server. (I know, in the "Target Computer(Host)" I have to mention the target system host name).

    Thanks for your help in advance.
