We are trying to load invoice file attachments using EIM.
We followed the bookshelf instructions:

Siebel Enterprise Integration Manager Administration Guide > Importing Data > Special Considerations for Imports >
Importing File Attachments

and put the attached file in siebel_home/input directory in our Siebel server machine.

We obtain the following message from EIM log that has no sense for us (see enclosed log and ifb files)
In the other hand, if we try to specify a different input directory by using the following ifb header parameter: ATTACHMENT DIRECTORY = /siebel_prog/siebsrvr/input; we obtain the following error from EIM: “SBL-EIM-00204: Invalid configuration file (ifb) name.”

Are we skipping anything?
