This article applies to BoKS Manager 7.0.0.

Note that this hotfix requires that HFBM-0102 is installed first.


A bug in the File Transfer Logging (FTL) code of boks_sshd may cause file transfers with scp to fail with a "Lost connection" message and exit code = 1.
The bug can also result in a hanging scp connection.

Revision 2:

The boks_sshd from hotfix HFBM-0181 has a dependency on sftp-server from hotfix HFBM-0102. If hotfix HFBM-0181 is installed without also installing hotfix HFBM-0102, then sftp with FTL would cause boks_sshd to break connections.

Resolution / Workaround

To resolve this issue, apply hotfix HFBM-0181, available for download from the HelpSystems Community Portal.

This hotfix includes an updated boks_sshd binary fixing the problem.

A workaround can be to disable File Transfer Logging by setting BOKS_SSH_FTL=off in the $BOKS_etc/ENV file and restarting BoKS.

Revision 2:

This hotfix was repackaged to add the dependency to require hotfix HFBM-0102 to be installed before installing hotfix HFBM-0181.
