[SOLVED] - Error code: 2 - Error message from server: No such file

Hi,

I'm trying to transfer some files over SFTP with a certificate and I'm getting this error message in the log:

It's working with the GUI and other applications as PSFTP.exe (from PuTTY) and FileZilla.
I've also searched this forum but I haven't found the answer.

This is my script:
# Get today's date and format it as ddMMyyyy_HHmm (exampel 27122016_1109)
$Date = Get-date -Format ddMMyyyy_HHmm
 
# Load WinSCP .NET assembly
Add-Type -Path "WinSCPnet.dll"
 
# Set up session options
$sessionOptions = New-Object WinSCP.SessionOptions -Property @{
    Protocol = [WinSCP.Protocol]::Sftp
    HostName = "HostName"
    UserName = "UserID"
    SshHostKeyFingerprint = "ssh-rsa 2048 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx"
    SshPrivateKeyPath = "\\Path\To\Key.ppk"
}
 
$session = New-Object WinSCP.Session
$session.SessionLogPath = "\\Path\To\Uploaded_$Date.log"
$sessionOptions.SshPrivateKeyPassphrase = "Password"
 
# Connect
$session.Open($sessionOptions)
 
# Your code
$localPath = "\\Loac\Path\*"
$remotePath = "/RemotePath/"
 
# Upload files, collect results
$transferResult = $session.PutFiles($localPath, $remotePath)
 
Write-Host ("Upload succeeded")
       
# Disconnect, clean up
$session.Dispose()

Thank you in advance!

Solution
The folder path are case sensitive which my college pointed out and after I change that it worked :oops:
You learn something new everyday :wink:
