Topic "How to check if command line command has worked successfully"

Author Message


Hi Support,

I am using WinSCP command line to get couple of files from the a unix server to Windows server. I have created a VBScript to get these files, the script works fine. I need to check in the script if both files have been copied successfully. I output a log file in the command but the log file does not say the file has been transfered or copied something like that. My idea is to look for this message that confirms the file has been transfered successfully, if not found then throw exception.

Is there a way I could increase the log levels? so that the log file will have more details? Or is there way to check if the file has been transfered successfully?

Snippet from the log file:

. 2013-08-05 12:50:15.291 Copying "/apps/asdf/acsdextract/orders/orderitem.csv" to local directory started.

You are not supposed to check for errors by parsing a session log file.

Please read documentation:
