Operating System Command After File Processing in Sender File Adapter

Hello guys,
actually we have different interfaces, and the client to take all the files from only one directory, for example D:/DPI.
Unitl now we had one adapter for every file with the content conversion, so we didn't have problems with that. Now we have the problem that we sould maintain an order processing files.
We thougth that an idea could be to execute one file pointing to D:/DPI and at the Operating System Command put like: copy D:/DPI/file.txt D:/DPI/outbound/file.txt, so when file is executed, we move the next file to another directory where is pointing the adapter. Doing this we have an error on the adapter giving us the message: Could not process due to error: java.lang.NullPointerException
We are using a Windows.
There is anyway to do in our way, or there is a better solution to resolve this problem?
Any other idea to do this?
Many thanks in advance.

Helo Guys,
maybe I haven't explained well.
We have one directory with different files. We have one adapter for every file( we need for the content conversion ) using NFS and all the adapters are pointing to the same directory.
The problem is that if we have files A.txt, B.txt and C.txt we need to process in an order.
And the problem we see is that for every file we have one adapter, so for example if we process file A.txt with one adapter, when this part is finished, we want to process file B.txt with another adapter, and the same for the rest of the files.
So the idea we had is to create another directories, and when A.txt has finished move file B.txt to another directory.
However this way is not running, if we log on the PI machine and execute cmd, we can do a copy of one file from one directory to another, but when we put this sentence in the adapter in OS command if we see the adapter log we see an error executing the OS command, but we don't know what is the error, there is no more information.
There is any way to do this or maybe we have to manage in a different way?
Many thanks in advance.

  • Is it possible to call operating system command after file receive?

    Hi expert,
    I'm trying to call operating system command after file receive comm.channel receive a txt file.
    operating system command uses txt file name as parameter.
    Is it possible? How?

    It should be possible, actually we have two options that are
    1.RUN OS command before message processing
    2.RUN OS command after message processing.
    So you can give the commands in the RUN OS command after message processing.

    just i want to know what is the purpose of run operating system command before message processing,after message processing under file sender adapter.
    waiting for your great answer.
    seeta ram.

    Hello Seeta,
    let me see if I give it using a simple scenario that I implamented : i nedd to transfer a very large file from one server to the other by XI.
    to save space and network traffic I use an OS command before picking up the file to run a zip command to zip the file.
    after I transfer the file to the target server I run another OS command after the transfer to unzip the file.
    now to your second question:
    the before Os command on the target server is used mostly for checks (make sure there isn't a file by that name or backing up existing data)
    and the after sender OS command is usualy for backing up or erasing existing files (cause it is done only after the first part was finished succesfully).

  • OS command before file processing in Sender File adapter

    Hi there,
    I'm having troubles running a os command from the sender file (NFS) adapter.  The batch file which I try to run is not getting executed at all.
    When I manually run the same batch file from the command prompt then it works perfectly.
    The OS command looks like this from the adapter config:
    I have also try with this notation
    Please give me some tips how can I solve this problem, is there any way how can I debug the OS command? When I look at the adapter monitonr no errors are showed.
    Thanks for any tips.

    Hi all,
    The problem is solved.
    Issue: File Receiver Channel does not execute the OS Command before message processing.
    Reason: XI always expects an input file (in my case the sender communication channel) on the source folder. If no input files are found then the rest of the adapter configuration is not executed at all.
    In our scenario the OS command is responsible for retrieving the input files from a FTP server the adapter. SO XI will never trigger the OS Command.
    Solution: Place a dummy input file on the source folder , the sender adapter will always read in this file and put it back on the same location.(e.g. using a condition in the receiver determination).

  • Use of OS command after message processing in sender MS Access

    Hi experts,
    My scenario is as follows :
    how can i trigger a macro in ms access?...do we have OS commands ?
    as XI will be 64 bit compliant , and the MS access will be 32 bit complaint...will the OS command work in the sender channel?..
    The other option i thought abt was...
    to send the data to a table xyz, then pass an OS command to trigger the macro using OS command after processing?..
    is this a feasible solution?...kindly suggest
    sender is ABAP proxy which triggers a macro in MS access..has ne one worked on it?...have nt seen too much info on sdn

  • OutOfMemory error on large file processing in sender file adapter

    Hi Experts,
    I got file to IDOC scenario, sender side we are using remote adapter engine, files are processing fine when the size is below 5mb, if the file size is more than 5mb we are getting java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: java heap space. can anyone suggest me what parameter i need to change in order to process more than 5mb.

    Hi Praveen,
    Suggestion from SAP is not to process huge files at a time. Instead, you can make the into chunks and process.
    To increase the heap Memory:
    For Java heap-size and other memory requirements, Refer to the following OSS note for details:
    Note 723909 - Java VM settings for J2EE 6.40/7.0
    Also check out the OSS Note 862405 - XI Configuration Options for Lowering Memory Requirements
    There are oss notes available for the Java Heap size settings specific to the OS environment too.

  • Unable to run a Batch File Operating System Command

    Using XI 3.0, I am unable to run a Batch File Operating System Command After Message Processing.
    My Batch file:

    It displays the contents of boagpg.bat file in xis.txt.
    I just don't understand why when I run the batch file, I would expect an %F.asc encrypted file in the same directory as the %F unencrypted file.
    Any ideas?
    or will I need Basis to create commands that will allow me to run GPG from XI Command Line?

  • Executing Operating system command

    I have a file(ftp)-xi-file(ftp) scenario. I want to run a operating system command on output/processed file which is on a different physical server through a script. But I have seen my script is not working. But when I did the same on the same physical server on which XI is hosted it is working fine. Could you plz somebody advise whether it works ?? if it is the case what precaustions should we take ??

    Hi Palnati
    OS command will run on XI OS only so you need to use FTP parameter in the script and "permanent connection" as connection mode

  • Run operating system command for sender File adpter (NFS)

    Hi All,
    iam doing a file to RFC scenario, using 'Run operating system command' in sender file adapter to change the file name while archiving (after processing completed).
    I mention OS command like this:
    Rename.bat file calls a 'perl script' code.
    when i run interface, could see below statement in adapter log ->
    "Execute OS command "
    but the script was not run and file name was not changed.
    Please advice what could be the problem?
    Does this mean script executed successfully?

  • How to Run Operating System Command Before/After Message Processing SAP PI

    We are trying to execute multiple commands via "Operating System Command Before/After Message Processing".
    When we use single command say for example cp or mv (copy or move) the commands get executed fine.
    eg: cp %F /var/opt/data/outbound/Test/Dummy.txt 
    /this works fine/
    when we club commands together or try to redirect the outputs of commands, none of the commands get executed.
    cp %F /var/opt/data/outbound/Test/Dummy.txt ; rm %F
    wc -l %F > /var/opt/data/outbound/Test/Dummy.txt
    Is it possible to execute multiple commands or redirect the output  of commands without using a shell script? The PI server we are working on iis hosted on UNIX environment.

    Hi Harleen,
    try like this
    cp %F /var/opt/data/outbound/Test/Dummy.txt ; rm %F
    instead of semicolon try this
    (1) &
    command1 & command2
    Execute Command1 and then execute Command2
    (2) &&
    command1 && command2
    Runs the command2 only when command1 doesn't Complete successfully
    (3) ||
    command1 || command2
    Runs the second command if the first command had an error
    (4) ()
    (command1 || command2) || (command3 & command4)
    Defines the order in which commands are to be executed

  • File Adapter 7.11 - set operating system command line dynamically

    is there any way to set the "Operating System Command Line" in the file adapter as ASMA / dynamic attribute?
    I need to set  a command line exec depending on some XSL mapping values.

    >>>is there any way to set the "Operating System Command Line" in the file adapter as ASMA / dynamic attribute?
    >>>I need to set a command line exec depending on some XSL mapping values.
    think about this approach:
    you put the XSL values into the filename after the real name of the file
    in the batch script you use those values in order to execute a dynamic exe command
    after processing you just change the name of the file in the script by removing the xsl values
    simple ? I think so
