We have an existing EDI file exchange handled by Biztalk that we want to move to Oracle B2B. We are trying to setup an Generic FTP transport channel and need to leave the Folder Name empty as any entry causes a Transport error: Change working directory to / Failed. 501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments Change working directory to / failed. 501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments. The FTP server that we connect to does not reply to a pwd, and does not let us cd to any directory.
Remote system type is Enterprise.
ftp> cd .
501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments
Is there a trick we can do to enter something into the required folder name on the channel configuration that will not actually try to execute a cd upon connect? I have already tried / and . and just about every other character.
We are on the B2B 11g that ships with SOA Suite 184.108.40.206.
I don't think this feature is available in B2B 11g but it looks like a valid case. You should raise a SR with support and followup with them. If a fix/solution is already available then you may get it otherwise support should get it fixed now.
