Tectia

Handling Prematurely Ending File Transfers

By default, when a file transfer to Tectia server on z/OS end prematurely, the allocated dataset is kept.

To change this behavior, you can specify the --attribute=conddisp option with sft-server-g3 in the sshd2_config file:

subsystem-sftp   /opt/tectia/libexec/sft-server-g3 --attribute=conddisp:DELETE

The conddisp option can take values CATLG, UNCATLG, KEEP, and DELETE, and they have the following effects, depending of the file type (MVS or HFS):

  • CATLG (default): an MVS dataset is retained and its name is cataloged. An HFS file is retained.

  • UNCATLG: the name of an MVS dataset is removed from the catalog but it is retained. An HFS file is retained.

  • KEEP: an MVS dataset is retained (if cataloged it will be still cataloged, if uncataloged it will be still uncataloged). An HFS file is retained.

  • DELETE: the name of an MVS dataset is removed from the catalog and the space allocated for it is released. An HFS file is deleted.
