LS command behavior



fixed

Hi All,

Ideally, when connecting to from AS400 to the SFTP server, the commands which work on AS400 shell prompt should work there also, is my understanding. With this understanding, I am not able to get the reason for below.

When using ls command on shell prompt (CALL QP2TERM), I am able to suppress the ls command error using "2> /dev/null". As below.
$
pwd
/home/disesftp
$
ls *.txt
ls: 0653-341 The file *.txt does not exist.
$
ls *.txt 2> /dev/null
$

But when I execute the same on SFTP server (windows server), this is how it is.

sftp rimrst@172.17.186.170<mailto:rimrst@172.17.186.170>
Connecting to 172.17.186.170...
sftp>
ls *.txt
Can't ls: "/*.txt" not found
sftp>
ls *.txt 2> /dev/null
Can't ls: "/*.txt" not found
sftp>

Why is there a difference in behavior of ls command on the QSHELL and SFTP server? How do we suppress these errors on a batch SFTP connection?

Thanks/Best Regards
Chella Govindarajan R,
