  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The user observed that DataPower might fail to cancel
    processing if a FTP Poller Front side Handler (FSH) cannot
    rename
    the input file. The user saw this in a setup of two devices with
    active concurrent FTP Poller FSHs. In rare situations both
    pollers renamed the input file at the same time. Instead of one
    canceling the processing on realizing the file got already
    renamed by its "winning" peer, it proceeded into its processing
    rule as if all went well on renaming and getting hold of the
    input file.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Affected is use of DataPower FTP Poller Front side Handler.
    
    Using two or more FTP pollers to poll a same
    URL may result in stream error which may cause a same file be
    picked up more than once.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
