    PRODUCT:

    Control-M for Advanced File Transfer


    COMPONENT:

    Control-M/CM for Advanced File Transfer


    APPLIES TO:

    Control-M for Advanced File Transfer 8.2



    PROBLEM:

    When running AFT 8 transfers that use a UNC path with a '$' in the path (administrative shares) it was possible to transfer these files.

    We find that after upgradign to AFT 8.2 these same transfers fail.
    If we test it by creating a share path without the '$' then the transfer succeeds.

    For example see the following log:
    ---
    Transfer type: BINARY

    Open data connection to retrieve file \\[servername]\E$\folder\ftplocation\myFile.pgp

    File '\\[servername]\E$\folder\ftplocation\myFile.pgp' not found on host 'Local',no such file or directory

    Server 'Local' reply Using PGP encryption, with Template Name: Clarity 

    Failed to copy file '\\[servername]\E$\folder\ftplocation\myFile.pgp'. Failed to get input stream from source file '\\[servername]\E$\folder\ftplocation\myFile.pgp'. Illegal group reference

    Failed in job [JobName] in file transfer #1

    CAUSE:

    CAR00157533 - Failed copy file using PGP when path contain $


    SOLUTION:

    The below CAR has been created to address the issue and is expected to be included in future Fix Pack 22.
    However, this is not confirmed as yet.
    CAR00157533 - Failed copy file using PGP when path contain $

    Workaround:
    - Until the CAR is released, the solution is to use a path that does not include the dollar symbol ($).
