SSIS - WinSCP Upload Failure

I did have a feeling that was the case as it is fairly large file and the script that runs does take a long time to run.
As this file is generated once per week – it seems like the logical answer but thought I would try out the forum to see if perhaps there was another issue.
I will try to loop as suggested.


Re: SSIS - WinSCP Upload Failure

This does not look like WinSCP problem.
You probably run your upload script too early, and the process that is creating the file has not finished yet.

Another possibility is that the newly created file is being scanned by an antivirus application, which locks the file, so it cannot be accessed by WinSCP, when it is starting the transfer.

As a workaround, you can loop at the beginning of your script to wait until the file can be opened.
See Wait for file to be freed by process.

SSIS - WinSCP Upload Failure

I have an SSIS Package that create three separate files and uploads them to a SFTP Server
The problem that keeps occurring is one of the files is 1000 KB and it keeps saying this file is in use when the file was created successfully by the SSIS Package
Here is the exact error that I am getting:

Description: Error when using WinSCP to upload files: WinSCP.SessionRemoteException: Can't open file '<FileName>'. System Error. Code: 32. The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process at WinSCP.OperationResultBase.Check() at ST_1cff4fb3fdae4184a3e0145198875bbd.ScriptMain.Main() End Error Error: 2020-03-01 05:01:25.89 Code: 0x00000006 Source: Upload File to GoAnywhere Description: The script returned a failure result. End Error DTExec: The package execution returned DTSER_FAILURE (1). Started: 5:00:00 AM Finished: 6:00:07 AM Elapsed: 3607.61 seconds. The package execution failed. The step failed.

Below is my script that is getting that error
