How to poll for a file in different server using ODIFILEWAIT

Hi Experts,

I need to check for the arrival of a file in a remote server (A). My ODI is installed in server B. I understand that I can use ODIFILEWAIT command but there is no option to select the IP/HOST to do polling on. That's why I am assuming it lets you poll only in the server ODI is installed on. Can you please suggest a way to do the same at remote server at the earliest. the requirement is very urgent. Thank you in advance!

    Why don't you bring the file on server B by ftp,or psexec then build it from there any specific requirement to take file from remote server directly from ODI??

    The file needs to be local to the ODI agent executing the session.

    I suggest two options:

    1) A standalone agent on server A

    2) If possible, map or mount the remote file location onto server B so that it appears 'local'.
