PIOM - AFP-IN client disconnects with no error

print

 

Issue

Customer sends a valid AFP file to the AFP-IN client and it disconnects immediately.  The system.log looks like this:

1D000000 VIPEXEC - Sending job 41 to AFP-IN, profile (removed) modifier (removed)

Cause

Adding the parameter LOG_LEVEL=15 to the AFP-IN.cfg file caused the following message to be generated in the system.log:
D000008 AFP-IN - AFP formdef (FORMDEF name) cannot be located

 

Resolution

Find the formdef that cannot be located and place it in the folder specified in the .set file.  I this case it was C:\MGRUSER2.5\afp-in\deflib.
