I have a VBScript that runs every hour and uploads pdf files. 80% of the time, it works with no problems. The rest of the time it fails on a random one of the files with the above error message. After that happens, the script will not upload any more files behind the failed file until the .filepart of the offending file is deleted on the server.
The command line used: winscp.exe /script="upload.txt" /log="log.xml"
option batch abort
option confirm off
put C:\Local_Directory\*.pdf /users/home/ -delete -nopreservetime
I have had WS_FTP Support look at the server side of the transfer and they say it rests on the client side. I am at a loss as to the cause considering that it doesn't always happen. Plus, I've never been able to recreate the error when using the GUI. Any help would be appreciated, and I can provide the xml log generated from the script, as well as the server log. I can't post them here, but I would be more than happy to email them to you.
