FTP Network Transfer Corrupts RMS File?

» close window

The Question is:


The Answer is :

  The FTP network transfer has corrupted the file attributes.
  Either do not transfer the file through an intermediate system, or take
  steps to preserve the OpenVMS file attributes (use of a recent/current
  zip tool with the -V option, use of a BACKUP saveset, etc) before and
  after the network transfer, or configure DECnet-Plus and IP-based
  networking and use OpenVMS file transfer tools, or use a tool such as
  CONVERT/FDL to attempt to reset the file attributes based on the file
  attributes associated with the input file (see ANALYZE/RMS/FDL).
  The OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) has a related discussion
  of repairing a corrupted BACKUP saveset.
