Advanced Server File Name Bug?

» close window

The Question is:

After upgrading Advanced Server from v7.2a to V7.3a, I can no longer transfer
 via MS-Windows (any version) files that have the starting character of an
 alphabetical letter, followed by (3) three 0 (zeros).  Example: G0003456.Bin
BUT renaming it to Gooo3456.Bin allows transfer of the files/directories.  The
 renaming causes a date change and we cannot use that method.  Files with other
 variations of (3) three 0's (zeros) transfer without a problem, also files
 with (2) letters in th
e first two positions work just fine.  There is something about a letter
 followed by three zeros that causes this problem.  I have tested this on other
 VMS nodes with V7.3a installed and can replicate the problem at will.

The Answer is :

  Please upgrade to Advanced Server V7.3A-ECO1.
