The problem was on serverside as the operator of this site (www.TradeShift.com) does not allow renaming of uploaded files. Or to be more exactly: allows only renaming to restricted patterns/suffixes.

Hi together, when renaming a file the server responds with this two errors:
350 Requested file action pending further information.
553 Can't rename file
This occurs in both scripting and dialog on a Windows Server 2008R2 using actual WinSCP 5.7.7 connected via FTP (FTPS: Implicit TLS/SSL) to a UNIX Type Apache FtpServer.
Opening the connection the server maps a virtual root directory "/" which is obviously not the root of the system. I then change directory to /outbox/ , upload a file to this directory and try to rename it. The file is fully uploaded and there is no issue/mismatch with the other topic "SFTP Renaming bug" while the .filepart is not done.
I can delete the file but I cannot rename it.
It is not a problem of rights. Here I would see a different error: "No permission to rename."
The significant sequence is
> 2016-08-29 12:08:34.509 Script: mv RG_0815_*.xml RG_0815_*.bak
. 2016-08-29 12:08:35.062 Moving file "RG_0815_571470_13939.xml" to "RG_0815_571470_13939.bak".
> 2016-08-29 12:08:35.062 RNFR /outbox/RG_0815_571470_13939.xml
< 2016-08-29 12:08:35.126 350 Requested file action pending further information.
> 2016-08-29 12:08:35.126 RNTO /outbox/RG_0815_571470_13939.bak
< 2016-08-29 12:08:35.205 553 Can't rename file.
Error 350 could be a result of incomplete pathnames. But the same error occurs even when I use WinSCP GUI and simply change one character of a files name.
Has anybody an idea how to solve this?
