Topic "-nopermissions option not working"

Author Message


I'm trying to script some commands using winscp so I can have a user run a .cmd windows batch file but some of the winscp commands don't seem to be working. It copies the file but it returns an exit code of 1 and an error because it's trying to set the permissions and/or timestamp on the remote server. Here is the command I'm running and the log output. I am running version 4.2.3 of winscp.

.cmd file contents:

@echo on
C:\PROGRA~1\WinSCP3\ /script=G:\Dacm\temp\copy_DA_tnsnames.txt > G:\DACM\TEMP\copy_DA_tnsnames.log

copy_DA_tnsnames.txt contents:

option batch on
option confirm off
open username@servername
cd /home/dataarch
option transfer ascii
put -nopermissions G:\DACM\TEMP\DA_tnsnames.ora

Logfile output:

Have you tried adding -nopreservetime?
