I need some help in trying to figure out a problem. I have a scheduled agent that will connect to an FTP server, using the NotesFTP class, then it will download and process some files. The agent use to run fine, but now it usually fails (90% of the time) due to "Error 308 (Could not download file from host.)". We're currently in a busy season, so my initial thought was that it was a server load issue with the FTP server. However, if I log into the server console and manually trigger the agent via TELL AMGR RUN <db> <agent>, it always runs fine. My understanding is that using the TELL AMGR command should be exactly the same as if the agent was triggered by the server. So why is it not able to always download the files when it normally runs? The fact that the agent runs fine 10% of the time when scheduled and 100% of the time when I manually trigger it with TELL AMGR leads me to believe there is no problem with my code. And the fact that it always runs fine when I manually trigger with TELL AMGR leads me to believe it's not necessarily the FTP server. Anyone have any suggestions on things to try?
