Error description

  • Environment Info
    -------------------
    SI Build Number: 5020500_7
    OS: Windows
    
    Problem Statement
    -----------------------
    FTP Client WS_FTP Pro does not work and comply with the fix
    provided with interim fix 7 (to delete and rename) with
    IT10013. In specific the WS_FTP Pro version 2003 works fine.
    However the later versions of WS_FTP Pro version
    2007 & 2012 fails.
    
    
    
    User Permissions:
    -------------------------
    - The Shared drive and the windows machine (that has SI) is in
    a windows domain.
    - The domain user is part of the Local admin group, where SI is
    installed.
    - The domain user has full permission to start SI services in
    the windows machine, where SI is installed.
    - The domain user has also full permission rights on the shared
    drive.
    
    
    *Note:
    Filezilla, Command line etc.. seems to work fine.
    
    
    
    Observations
    ---------------------
    We have tested this inhouse with 2003, 2007 and 2012 and
    following seems not to work:
    - In 2007 and 2012 we see a strange behavior that the FTP
    Client interprets the files/folders in FTP Server with a empty
    space in the beginning of the file/folder name (Look in to the
    logs and images attached).
    - Aslo we tested with Filezilla Server and the WS_FTP Pro 2007
    and 2012 seem to interpret the file names correct and executes
    the ftp commands.
    
    
    
    
    Expected Behavior
    --------------------
    To execute the ftp commands such as Rename, Delete and Change
    to work with later versions of WS_FTP Pro
    
    
    
    Business Impact
    -------------------
    Blocking developments on critical integration project
