    Hi guys!

      I'm sure this is an easy one.  What action would you use to move files between managed system? would you use the "move files or folders" action? I mean, wouldn't this force us to use the ip address (or network name) as part of the "Source path" and "Target path"? for instance if I want to move from "c:\temp\file.txt" in server A to "/home/myuser/Desktop/file.txt" in server B do I need to run the action in server A with c:\temp\file.txt as Source Path and something like "root@A:/home/myuser/Desktop/file.txt" as Target Path?

     

    I hope I made myself somehow clear enough!!

     

    Thanks!

    One way to copy files between agents that running on different OS type  is by using get file or folder from remote agent action.

    This will use RA networking to copy the file.

    If both agentsrunning with the same OS type you can use copy files or folders action or move files or folders action (assuming you have share/mount point  that one server can access the other one)

    Thanks

    I think the "Get file from remote agent" will do the trick! I'll try it!

     

    thanks

    I’ve used “put file” and “get file” from remote systems many times, they are VERY helpful to transfer files between different OS’s and file systems…..and doesn’t require network access, either, so it can be run by an agent running as a local system account…..

     

    Which I use depends on which agent has all the correct path parameters
