I am trying to get AutoSys to execute an FTP job on a UNIX server to a Win2K server but it appears that AutoSys can not log into the Win2K server. I am able to FTP into the Win2K server from other machines using the same ID. Is there something special that needs to be done to get AutoSys to execute an FTP job?

Yes - you need another ftp server, since IIS bundled one does not close data connections after transfer....

We are using HP UNIX. I will get the script from the UNIX developer.

As to the use of IIS we have not had any problems with ftp jobs to our Win2K servers in the past.

ok, you either need a scriptable ftp client (like ncftp), or a passwordless ftp account on the server, or an expect script
on which platform is AutoSys? is it your user on the ftp server?

AutoSys is a robot software that does everything operators ever did(or cron). problem is that it uses own ftp engine to transfer files. Please listen to ahoffman and use some command to transfer files instead (or patch AutoSys).

Not sure what you want to do, but is it something like backing up files?  Is it through the Internet or on a local machine?

Here is a script that will send files to a W2K by creating a mount.  It loads shlight, sends the files, then unloads shlight.

With a few modifications, you could make it send the files via the Internet through ftp, but you should probably encrypt the data through ssh.

#!/bin/sh
# ~kdm
# place the list of back up files in FilesToBU located in
LIST_OF_FILES=/tmp/FilesToBU

# and copied to:
LOCATION=/mnt

SHARE="//computer/directory"
U=administrator
P=password

/usr/local/sbin/shlight $SHARE $LOCATION -U $U -P $P

if [ "$?" -eq 1 ] ; then
  echo "Couldn't mount remote share for backups"
  exit 1
fi

echo Mounted remote share $SHARE

cat $LIST_OF_FILES | \
 while read fn rest ; do \
   if [ "$fn" = "#" ] ; \
     then echo comment $rest ; \
     else if [ "$fn" != "" ] ; then \
       if [ -e "$fn" ] ; then \
         FULLNAME=$LOCATION`dirname \`echo $fn\`` ; \
         echo Copying $fn to $FULLNAME ; \
         mkdir -p $FULLNAME ; \
         cp -RL $fn $FULLNAME/ ; \
       fi ; \
     fi ; \
   fi ; \
 done

echo Unmounting remote share $SHARE
/usr/local/sbin/unshlight $LOCATION
