The following error messages will be found:

The job tries to create a file 'UC4SCJ.GDG.TEST(+1)'/last-error.xml what is of course not possible. The FT job ends OK though in the report you find this error.
 
 

Environment

OS: Z/OS
OS Version: N/A

Cause

Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: This is not an issue of our ftp agent, but of z/OS. I.e., the ftp-server on z/OS side must be able to handle mput with multiple files. In this case, you can use the free form, but with our RA FTP it is not possible.

Resolution

Call the File Transfer from another object, for example from an SCRI with:

:SET &HND# = PREP_PROCESS_FILENAME("VWGSUP11","c:\TEMP\last*",,,,,,'UC_LOGIN=LOGIN.JAC')
:PROCESS &HND# : RSET &LINE# = GET_PROCESS_LINE(&HND#) : PRINT &LINE# : set &res# = ACTIVATE_UC_OBJECT('JOBS.FTPAGENT.FTPJOB.ZOS.JAC.NEW.1',,,,,PASS_VALUES)
:ENDPROCESS

And in the FTP job you use &LINE# as the source path. So, for each found file a file transfer is done.
