Error description

  • Your WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition agent is participating
    in a transfer in which a large number of concurrent
    destination files are being transferred. Intermittently,
    transfers fail with the following error, where XXX is the
    directory name:
    
    BFGIO0007E: Unable to create directory XXX
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Version 7.0.4
    and 7.5
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    When multiple transfers occur concurrently and these transfers
    attempt to create the same target directory, then an exception
    can occur that causes the transfer to fail because it believes
    it can not create the target directory.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The issue was caused by a timing window where more than one
    transfer attempted to create the same target directory. When the
    second transfer failed to create the target directory (because
    the first transfer successfully created it) then it caused the
    transfer to fail as it believe it did not have permission to
    create the directory. This APAR solves the timing issue by
    making sure that concurrent transfers can create the same target
    directory with no errors.
