BizTalk 2006 R2 – FTP adapter issue

  I ran into an FTP issue in our prod, we were using BizTalk FTP adapter to get data from our partners. Basically BizTalk FTP adapter is able to connect to the ftp site and able to get the list and after that it “QUIT” without retrieving the file.  There is no error in the ftp log or Application log.  So BizTalk FTP adapter checks for the SYSTEM type and determines the listing to retrieve the files. If it’s a UNIX system and the file is listed as windows file listing as shown below from the log. You will run into same issue. So when changed the listing to UNIX it worked.


Here is the ftp log:



< 215 UNIX Type: L8 Version: SUNOS

 > PWD

< 257 "/" is current directory.


< 200 Type set to A.


< 200 PORT command successful.


< 150 Opening ASCII mode clear data connection for file list.

< ORDaef4f2b                                                                        (Windows Listings)

< 226 Transfer complete.


< 221-You have transferred 0 bytes in 0 files.


 After we changed the file listing on the ftp server, BizTalk FTP adapter was able to pick and process the files.


-rw-rw-r--  1 2066  ftp  234868 Nov 02  2009 ORDaef4f2b   (Unix Listings)


 Hope this helps…
