Subject Re: issue getting file using scp call within ant
Date Tue, 23 Nov 2004 16:22:21 GMT
Ive done a search for the file using find command and it does not show up. 
 This is UNIX by the way. So no I have not made a mistake in the code and 
lost the file.  Ive also hardcoded variables and tried the script in this 
way. The file still does not show up.

If I am missing jars, it would seem that I wouldnt be able to get any 
files. If I am using an incompatible ant version, I again would thinkg scp 
wouldnt work at all...

Still searching...

Since you haven't provided any code and say that you aren't getting any
error messages and you do successfully get files from two of the machines, 
can only guess that you have made a mistake in your code and are actually
receiving the files from all 4 machines but, in the case of two of the
machines, you aren't writing them to where you intended to write them on
your local machine. Perhaps the variable describing the target directory
does not have the value you think it does and the files are actually 
written to a different directory.

If that doesn't turn out to be the problem, perhaps you need to check that
you are using a current version of Ant and of the jsch jar. See the 
Dependencies section of the manual for the details of what jars you need 
where to get them.
