Uploads to EFT Server fail if file with same name exists during RENAME operation

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT Server version 6.3.1 and later

DISCUSSION

EFT Server has historically not supported overwriting of an existing file during a RENAME operation. If the target destination for the RENAME operation contained a file with that same name, EFT Server will error and preserve the existing file.

Use the following registry value to cause RENAME to overwrite a file with the same name.

32-bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0

64-bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0

DWORD ReplaceExistingOnRename

If value is missing or zero = legacy behavior; otherwise RENAME will overwrite an existing file.
