FTP Mget - long file name

Postby pszajn » Fri May 06, 2016 7:42 pm

Hi
I have a problem with FTP.
I need to download a file/files from Windows server to Mainframe server using MGET.
Unfortunalely my file/files located on Windows server have long names (longer than 8 characters) and I can't change length of filenames.

My JOB:

//TESTFTP  JOB (PK000U),'MBA FIL',CLASS=A,MSGCLASS=X
//FTPEXEC1 EXEC PGM=FTP,                            
//         PARM='10.3.4.112, (TRACE'                  
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                              
//SYSTCPD  DD DSN=SYS1.TCPP(TCPDATX),DISP=SHR        
//SYSFTPD  DD DSN=SYS1.TCPP(FTPPOLX),DISP=SHR        
//SYSIN    DD *                                      
test test1234                                        
cd /transfer/in/sfa/                                
locsite recfm=fb                                    
locsite prim=500                                    
locsite sec=500                                      
locsite lrecl=1010                                  
mget MBA_INPUT_FILE_201604*.txt                      
close                                                
quit                                                
/*                                                  
 


I got that answer:

File/files can't be downloaded to mainframe because have too long names. Is there any way to cut filenames to 8 characters or any other way to get file/files to mainframe? Maybe it is possible to define new filenames (or any file mask) on local side (on mainframe)?

You have some choices to make:
1. If you insist on using MGET, you retrieve the files into a Unix directory. You can then write code in the language of your choice to convert the file names in the directory to valid data set names and copy them to z/OS data sets. This is either a two- or three-step process depending upon how you write it.
2. Stop using MGET and use GET to retrieve the files into individual z/OS data sets. You do this by having an FTP step do a directory to retrieve the file names, parse them using a program in the language of your choice and creating the appropriate GET commands, then running those GET commands in a separate FTP step -- so you wind up with a three-step process.
3. Write a program on the Windows server in the language of your choice to convert the long file names into valid z/OS data set names before running your FTP job. This could run into timing issues if the mainframe FTP job is scheduled.

Thank You Robert for Your answer.
Honestly I thaught that is simpliest way to do that... maybe using any FTP features. I don't want to write any programs and make complex process from that.

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

If you want to use MGET, you receive whatever the file names are on the server -- period. So if those names do not match z/OS data set naming standards, then you cannot use MGET directly to z/OS data sets. I gave you your options but the bottom line is that your process will not work as currently designed. Either you change the process (which will require coding in some language) or you determine that those files cannot easily be placed on the mainframe and come up with another solution that does not involve FTP. Have you talked to your site support group to see what they suggest?
