Error Message :
N/A

AS/400 RPTSTORE objects related to Automic's File Transfer (FT) are not deleted.

When a file transfer is executed with an AS/400 Agent as the source, 2 objects / files are created in the Agent’s library. The RPTSTORE, which contains the file transfer report and the STSSTORE, which contains the file transfer status / restart information.  This information can be found in the Automic documentation listed in the reference section below.

When the file transfer completes successfully, the files should be automatically deleted. This works for the STSSTORE file, it’s deleted after as successful JOBF, but the RPTSTORE file remains and is not deleted:

Workaround :
Delete files manually. Howver, pay special attention so that the RPTSTORE objects/files of the current active file transfers are not deleted.
There is no way to determine which RPTSTORE file is releated to which RunID.  

Note:  Our recommendation is to delete the RPTSTORE objects/files only in cases where no file transfer is currently active.
