Error description

  • IBM Sterling B2B Integrator: V5020601
    Database: Oracle 11g
    OS: Linux
    
    When you upload the files using FTP to IBM Sterling B2B
    Integrator using the FTP server adapter, if the client uses a
    put command using a relative path containing a dot (current
    directory), the PUT fails and SI throws an error 553.
    553 '/.myfilename.txt': cannot be written.
    
    The dot in the relative path indicating the current directory
    is taken by the adapter as another directory and therefore the
    path cannot be found.
    
    For example if the client performs a "PUT ./testfile.txt or PUT
    ./subdirectory/testfile.txt
    IBM Sterling B2B Integrator rejects with the error:
    msg=[553 '/./testfile.txt': cannot be written
    or
    msg=[553 '/./subdirectory/testfile.txt': cannot be written
    

Local fix
