SYMPTOM

When using a Copy/Move Event Rule with *.* wildcard, the system does not generate an error if no files exist.

RESOLUTION

Change or create the following Windows Registry value:

On 32-bit systems:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0]

On 64-bit systems:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0]

"WildcardFailMode"=dword:00000001

Values:

If the key does not exist, EFT Server continues with legacy behavior. Empty directory does not generate error.

  • 0 - legacy behavior. Empty directory does not generate error
  • 1 – Empty directory is considered an event failure (i.e., files were expected). Triggers event failure actions.
