After an upgrade from RA Informatica v2.0.0j or above to RA Informatica v3.0.0, the agent fails to start.

There were file transfer options added in special patch v2.0.0j and above, which have been removed in version 3.0.0 to improve performance.  If a special patch was applied, the options would have been displayed on the Agent's Informatica tab as shown in the image below. The Informatica FTP Connection object has also been removed due to this change.

If the FTP option was selected, you will see the following error in RA_TRACE:

U0052002 Object 'CONN.INFO_FTP' with type 'CONN' does not exist in client '00000'.

U2000041 Shutdown Agent 'RA_INFO_VWADEV11.
