Can BizTalk 2006 R2 FTP adapter not delete the file from Receive Location after read it? RRS feed

  • Question

  • For some reason, I want to keep a copy of file on the FTP server, so I can read next time.

    It is because the file is crucial for my system which needs a file daily, if there is none in the weekend, then it would be a problem.

     

    Thank you.

  • Hi Xiao,

    One workaround for such curial files is to transfer a copy to backup folder, by using another send port, in addition to transmitting to destination location. So if required you can recover these from the backup location. That backup location can be anywhere it could be some folder on the FTP server too.

  • Hi,

    You could try commercial third party tool like nSoftware that does offer this functionality. BizTalk only supports this on newest 2010 version.

  • Only the enhanced FTP adapter in BizTalk Server 2010 is able to do it.

  • Thank you for your reply.

     

    Is there any workaround to archive this?

     

    What pops up in my mind is I use a scheduled task to copy the duplicated file copy back to the receive location daily. So in the weekend, it still can reuse the files generated on Friday.

     

    Thank you.
