Error description

  • In the case of FileOutput node, the value of 'ServerDirectory'
    property is overridden by the corresponding value in the FTP
    Server policy, if it is set. But once the FtpServer policy is
    specified using ESQL, 'SET
    OutputLocalEnvironment.Destination.File.Remote.Server =
    '{MyPolicies}:MyFtpPolicy'' then the 'ServerDirectory' value
    configured in the FileOutput Node is always ignored and the
    FileOutput node transfer files to the home directory (.) of the
    user even if 'ServerDirectory' property is not overridden in the
    FTP Server policy.
    

Local fix

  • Specify the  remoteServerDirectory value in the policy instead
    of as a FileOutput Node property.
