FIX: You cannot send files from an FTP server to BizTalk Server 2010 by using the FTP adapter when you specify a temporary folder as an absolute path

Applies to: BizTalk Server Branch 2010BizTalk Server Developer 2010BizTalk Server Enterprise 2010


Consider the following scenario:
  • You use the FTP adapter to transfer files from an FTP server to Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010.
  • You specify a temporary folder location as an absolute path for the files, and the target folder path is configured on the FTP send port for BizTalk Server 2010. For example, the port is configured as follows:
    Folder: /home/abc/in
    Target Filename: TO%MessageID%
    Temporary folder: /Tmp
  • You try to send files from the FTP server to BizTalk Server 2010.
In this scenario, the FTP adapter cannot send the files. Additionally, failure information that resembles the following is logged in the FTP logs:
> STOR {82868267-a2d1-4ba8-bc20-d880aa5ef5d6}
< 150 Ok to send data.
< 226 File receive OK.
> RNFR {82868267-a2d1-4ba8-bc20-d880aa5ef5d6}
< 350 Ready for RNTO.
> RNTO /home/abc/in//home/abc/in/TO{5E044D59-CE73-4EFE-BBAF-8A30F39D1336}
< 550 Rename failed.
Note This issue does not occur in BizTalk Server 2009.


This issue occurs because the default location of the root directory is appended repeatedly.
