    Second Vendor – Public Key Authentication optimization

    Second Vendor – Public Key Authentication optimization in Version v2020.6.27.0

    As mentioned in a previous blog post we’ve added a second SFTP vendor in LimagitoX File Mover

    LimagitoX File Mover SFTP Second Vendor

    Vendor 2 is also able to logon using Public Key Authentication. To achieve this, the SFTP Client (our File Mover in this case) needs to add your Private Key (and Private Key Password).

    LimagitoX File Mover SFTP Public Key Authentication

    Quite some types of private key files can be used. It is important to use the correct file extension.

    We are also able to use private keys within certificate file types like:

    • .cer, .crt, .p7b, or .pem
    • .p12 or .pfx (PKCS #12)

    Note: If the PFX contains multiple certificates, the 1st certificate in the PFX is loaded.

    A private key file with .ppk as extention will be threaded as a PuTTy key.

    Also the following private key file types are supported:

    • KCS1, PKCS8, PEM, JWK, PVK, etc.

    If you need any help , please let us know.

    SQLite ERROR: database disk image is malformed

    2020-06-24 13:57:08.764 [WINGET] CheckQrySelect Exception: [FireDAC][Phys][SQLite] ERROR: database disk image is malformed

    One of my moving rules is logging a SQLite error. Some files are processing, but the error was discovered because a select few files aren’t moving. I’m not sure that these failures are related to the error message. The files in question aren’t listed in the log. The rule seems to load OK, as does the file memory database. I’m not sure where else to look.

    Q: Can you help me track down the database and resolve the error?

    A: This is the first time we received feedback about this error message. It seems the File memory database file is damaged.

    We googled a bit and decided to share this in a post.

    1.- First we installed the latest (free) version of sqlitebrowser

    2.- Check your settings directory. The File Memory file starts with LimagitoX.MemXY.sqlite where XY is the ID of the Rule.

    In the example the Rule has ID120 so the File Memory Database file will be LimagitoX.Mem120.sqlite

    LimagitoX File Mover Rule ID

    LimagitoX File Mover Settings Directory File Memory Database File

    3.- Copy the damaged File Memory database file first and open it with the installed SQLiteBrowser tool

    4.- When opened select Tools > Integrity Check

    SQLiteBrowser Integrity Check

    5.- Click OK to start the Integrity Check

    6.- We’re getting error messages so it seems the File Memory database file was damaged. Normally we should get an OK message only.

    7.- Export the content of the damaged database to a temporary SQL File. You’ll be asked to name this SQL file (any name is ok).

    SQLiteBrowser Export

    8.- The File Memory database only contains one table, tblFileMemory

    9.- Exporting ..

    10.- Export completed

    11.- Restart SQLite Browser Tool and select Import, Database from SQL File. Select the SQL file you exported in step 7.

    SQLiteBrowser Import

    12.- Now you’ll have to set the filename of this new database. It must be the same as the damaged database file. You’ll have to replace this file later.

    13.- Import completed

    14.- To be sure we did an integrity check on this new database file, result OK

    15.- Finally you’ll have to replace the new File Memory database file with the damaged one. You’ll have to stop the LimagitoX Application or Service because the damaged File Memory database file will be locked as long as our File Mover Application or Service is running.

    Q&A 18: Is there a way to change the destination based on day of week

    Q: Is there a way to change the destination based on day of week? I have a rule that moves a backup to destination daily. Would like to use same rule to move Mondays backup to a Weekly backup folder.

    A: Yes this is possible using the Destination ‘Create Subdirectory’ option. Please check the File & Directory tab.

    First Example:

    LimagitoX File Mover Day of Week example 1

    Second Example

    LimagitoX File Mover Day of Week example 2

    You can use combinations of parameters or combinations of fixed text and parameters.
