Error description

  • When a pgp encrypted file with an uppercase extension of .PGP
    is sent to the IBM Sterling File Gateway  Producer, the file is
    decrypted with an
    output filename of file.PGP_decrypted. The '_decrypted' suffix
    is appended to the end of the file which is a defect. This
    problem occurs when the producer file extension ends in .PGP or
    .GPG (upper case format).
    When a pgp encrypted file with a lowercase extension of
    .pgp is sent to the IBM Sterling File Gateway Producer, the file
    is decrypted with
    an output filename of file.pgp, which is the expected correct
    result.
    

Local fix

    Circumvention:
    Send pgp encrypted file with a lower extension of .pgp or .gpg
