Not sure what I'm doing wrong.
I am trying to use WinSCP to copy a .FLP file (so I can load the LSI drivers on an XP VM) to my ESX server. When I copy the file, the filename gets renamed to vmscsi-184.108.40.206.flp.filpart and it won't rename it back to vmscsi-220.127.116.11.flp.
Winscp reports the following:
"Transfer was successfully finished, but tempoary transfer file 'vmscsi-18.104.22.168.flp.filepart' could not be renamed to target file name 'vmscsi-22.214.171.124.flp'. If this problem persists, you may try to turn off transfer resume support.
Error code: 3
Error message from server: Permission denied
Request code: 18
What's odd, is when I copy another file , for example, pic.jpg, I don't receieve this same error using WinSCP and copying into the same destination directory.
edt: I should mention I am trying to copy this file to my datastore "Storage2", and have also tried copying to datastore "Storage1"
when building a vm and OS install asks you to hit f6, I usually just mount the .flp file using the virtual floppy option in the VM. I don't think it's necessary to copy it to the ESX server, just copy it to a network resource.
Try using Fast Veeam, it allows you to su to root when logging in where as winscp does not. Once su'd to root you should be able to copy the file directly into the vmfs volumes or the vmimages folder.
You should be able to get around that by selecting SCP as the protocol when you start WinSCP (rather than SFTP with SCP fallback). Or you can disable the resume feature in WinSCP.
