Out-of-box File Transfer Job to copy a file from one host to another.

oracle.sysman.emSDK.agent.client.exception.PeerAgentCommException: unable to contact peer agent at https://<Source Agent Hostname>:<port>/emd/main/

 

Works the other way round (destination is 13r3 and source is 12r5) between the exact same hosts where it fails.
