SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You install Microsoft FTP Service 7.5 on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. 
  • You install the hotfix that is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article 2383827 on the computer. Or, you install Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 or for Windows Server 2008 R2 on the computer.
  • You run the ls or dir command to list a specific file that does not exist on the FTP server.
In this scenario, you receive the following message:
226 Transfer complete
This is the message that you expect to receive if the file exists. When the file does not exist, you expect to receive the following message:
550-The system cannot find the file specified
Note If you run the ls or dir command together with a wildcard, you receive the "226 Transfer complete" message whether the file exists or not.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the hotfix that is described in KB 2383827 contains a regression.
