  • Users Affected:
    All
    
    Problem Description:
    The SFTP Client Move service fails in case a file of the same
    name exists in the remote target directory. The error message
    displayed in this scenario is: "Server responded with an unknown
    failure: Failure: ". This message doesn't clearly state the
    reason for operation failure.

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    A code fix is provided.
    
    The SFTP Client Move service now first checks if the source file
    with the same name already exists at the target destination.
    If it exists, the process fails with this message:
    A file <absolute name of target file > already exists at this
    target location, so the source file: <absolute name of source
    file> cannot be moved here".
