FTP not finish up its job

Hi there,
We found that, files transfer from server A to server B is sometimes not truly successful even though the log shows otherwise

In reality, the above file from server A does not actually ftp over to server B completely. Some files are still not FTP but the log shows otherwise.
Is it due to ftpaccess implementation? I've checked the option and found that the target directory is allow largefiles.

Are the files there at all or are they truncated?

What are the HP-UX versions of the two servers?

Hi

I don't think is the syslog.log and all the error codes associated to the ftpd that are written into syslog.log. Nor does it look like you have the -d debugging option on.

Add -f top ftpd in /etc/inetd.conf, restart with inetd -c, and check syslog. I want the error codes.

I'd also like to see your scirpt, and for you to place this command right after you 'ftp' command,

ftp...
echo $?

-or-,

ftp
STAT=$?
...
echo $STAT

Could you show us some of that reality?

Which "the above file"? Evidence? (Actual
"ls -l" output, for example?)

You're sure that the source file is closed
and stable when the FTP transfer begins?

> Is it due to ftpaccess implementation?

I'm not aware of any ftpaccess options which
are intended to enable data corruption.

Again, can we see the evidence?

> What are the HP-UX versions of the two servers?

A fair question (which should never need to
be asked).
