Chuck,

I think you hit the nail on the head.
Our R&D user is 10 characters, needs to be shortened to 8.

I remember this from a previous issue.

Thanks
Paul

I'm receiving the below error message.

No user exists for uid 356

Is there a reason a user would work for FTP and not SFTP.


I suppose, inferring from the error, that a user that can use FTP but
can not use SFTP, could arise if the authentication-method requires a
matching UID.

Review the results, i.e. the numeric value presented, from the
following auto-prompted command request, naming the [presumably
Current] User initiating the request [in place of "The_User"]; I would
guess the value is probably 356:

?CHGUSRPRF The_User ??UID()


I suppose instead of having just offered that WAG\supposition without first doing a web search.... so I did perform a web search [https://www.google.com/search?&q=%22sftp%22+%22No+user+exists+for+uid+%22],
and I found something that might be interesting. Might the following be the source of the issue?:
