An ITKnowledge Exchange (ITKE) member recently had a question on FTPing a Out File without using a *SAVF, and fellow techies jumped in on the conversation and helped out. Here is a portion of the conversation. Read the rest of the thread here.
I'm trying to FTP an Out File (DSPOBJD of a library) from one iSeries to another. The problem is I cannot use a *SAVF because of an operating system version mismatch between the two systems. A simple "put" or creating an Out File at the target before "put" is not working. Is there any other way to make this work?
OS/400 supports transfer of *SAVF between different versions and releases -- up to a point. What is the sending system's version and what is the receiving system's version?
I believe you are running into an issue with the SAV* commands and different versions. You can SAVLIB, for example, to selected previous versions to a *SAVF and then FTP this to the other machine that is at the previous version.
It is important to know first which operating system release you are using? Are you sure it's not a problem with user rights to be able to create the output file on target system?
Additional help needed: It looks like "Rituraj" could still use some help. Do you have experience in this area? Why not lend a helping hand to a fellow ITKE member.
