File is not detected by DMW File Watcher. The DMW was working OK before and suddenly, stopped working today without apparent reason. It reproduces against all the DMW lifecycles.

It is expected that File Watcher automatically detects the files as it was doing before.

Upload of File '' was successful but error occurred while setting the permissions or/and timestamp.

If the problem persists, turn off setting permissions or preserving timestamp. Alternatively, you can turn on 'Ignore permission errors' option.
Permission denied.
Error code:3
Error message from server: Permission denied.



An incorrect DP Server using the same name was started up few days ago. The correct DP Server was shutdown and then, the File Watcher was using the incorrect one.
