Failed Loading AFP to OD server
« on: September 09, 2020, 11:13:38 PM »
Hello All,

I'm facing a peculiar issue where when I send a bunch of documents in a single AFP file it fails to load, however when I send the same set of documents segregated into 1 / 2 / 5 document(s) per AFP file, these have loaded successfully ???.

I understand that the CMOD server has a 2 GB limit on accepting an AFP file, but my AFP file (consisting of all the documents) is only around 4 MB.

Has anyone faced such an issue? If yes, I would request to know the possible root causes and the resolutions?

Unfortunately, I don't have a comprehensive log to post here as the team managing the CMOD server is not providing the same  :(.

Thanks in Advance.

Try running your input file through arsafpd to see if it's well-formed AFP:

Ask the CMOD team to send you the log from the load.  It's difficult to impossible to start diagnosing the problem without the error messages! 

You can paste the error message in here to share, but PLEASE remove any private information - server names or IP addresses, user ids, passwords, and the like before submitting it to the forums!  :)

It happens so that the CMOD team was using AFPDMP to validate the AFP before invoking the load to server. Upon skipping the validation step the AFP is loading fine.  :)
