Kevin is correct that -v is as verbose as scp and sftp both get. You just
need to pipe the output to a file. However, -v is probably more verbose
than you want, and you probable want to omit it unless you care about the
intricacies of the ssh session. Omitting the -v will get you file not found

However, some of those error messages will go to stderr and not stdout You
Probably want to use &> instead of > . That will definitely work with bash
in PASE, I'm not sure about the default ksh shell.
