File Transfers using 'include sub directories' from Windows to Unix show wrong slash in path.


Article ID: 84785


Updated On:


CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine


Error Message :

File Transfers from Windows to Unix, with 'include sub directories' is checked, show report paths with backslash instead of slashes.

The problem occurs in exactly this constellation:

    Sender-Agent: Windows-Agent
    Receiver-Agent: Unix-Agent:
    Reverse connection, i.e., sender agent cannot connect to receiver agent



Cause type:
Root Cause: The bug was found in the Windows-Agent:
*in reverse connection, the Windows agent by mistake tells the UNIX-Agent that he also is an UNIX-Agent
*however, the destination agent is a real UNIX agent and therefore does not turn the paths from Windows-paths to UNIX-paths, because it assumes the paths to be correct UNIX paths.


OS: Windows
