Standard FTP return codes are computed when you specify
CLIENTERRCODES FALSE or the default value in the FTP.DATA file and
when one of the following cases occurs:
- EXIT is specified with no parameter.
- The CLIENTEXIT FALSE statement is specified or the default value
is specified in the FTP.DATA file.
Standard FTP return codes might also be displayed in
the text of message EZZ9830I if LOGCLIENTERR TRUE and CLIENTERRCODES
FALSE are specified in the FTP.DATA file, regardless of the following
- Whether you specified the EXIT parameter on the FTP command
- Whether you coded the CLIENTEXIT statement in the FTP.DATA file
A standard FTP return code appears in the following format:
- Is the subcommand code, a number in the range 1 - 99
representing the subcommand that the FTP client was executing when
it detected the error. Each subcommand has an EXIT_IF_ERROR
flag. If you configure FTP to exit on error, the EXIT_IF_ERROR flag
determines whether the FTP client exits when an error occurs. You
can configure FTP to exit on error by using one of the following methods:
Table 1 describes the
possible FTP subcommand codes.
- Specify the EXIT or EXIT=nn parameter
on the FTP command
- Code the CLIENTEXIT TRUE statement in the FTP.DATA file
- Is the reply code from the most recent reply sent by the FTP server.
All FTP server replies begin with a 3-digit number. All reply codes
used by the z/OS® FTP server
are listed the z/OS Communications Server: IP and SNA Codes. See RFC 959 and RFC 1123 for a generic description
of FTP reply codes. Information about accessing RFCs can be found
in Related protocol specifications.
For example, the FTP standard return code 16550
indicates the following:
- The GET command failed.
- The reply code from the FTP server. The latest reply from the
server began with the number 550.
The FTP standard return code 04532 indicates the following:
- The APPEND command failed.
- The reply code from the FTP server.
00 and 000 are valid values for yy
. This means that the error occurred at a time
when no FTP subcommand was being processed (yy
=00) or at a time when no reply had been received from the server
for the current process. Message EZA1735I is issued
in one of the following situations:
- when the EXIT parameter is specified when the FTP client was started
- whether the CLIENTEXIT TRUE statement is specified in the FTP.DATA
