Upgrading Secure Ad Hoc Transfer

When you upgrade to a newer version of the Secure Ad Hoc Transfer (SAT) module, you should first upgrade EFT.

  • It is very important that SAT have the same version of SFTPCOMInterface.dll that the EFT to which SAT is connecting is using. Upgrading EFT might require also updating the SFTPCOMInterface.dll for the SAT module.

By default, SFTPCOMInterface.dll is stored in the EFT installation directory and in C:\Inetpub\EFTAdHoc for the SAT module.

  • If EFT and SAT are on the same computer, then the upgrade process for EFT will register the new .dll on the computer and will be used by SAT; however, in this case the IIS service must be restarted. This is important so that ASP.NET (hosted by the "aspnet_wp.exe" process) will release any references to the existing COM object and reload the new one.

  • If Repair is selected, the SAT installer merges the values located in the configuration file in the previous version with the corresponding variables in the new configuration file. The SAT installer creates a backup of all prior SAT files before installing the new files (in case of customizations).

  • The SAT installer does NOT configure IWA when performing an upgrade.

  • Upgraded SAT installations retain their prior anonymous authentication method. SAT version 3 allows Active Directory (AD) authentication for the sender by default (new installs). Optionally, you can turn off sender authentication (allow anonymous send) in the SAT Administration pages. Refer to the AD Extensions section of the web interface for details of turning on or off sender authentication. After upgrading from version 2.x to version 3.x, if you enable sender authentication ("Populate "From" e-mail address using Active Directory"), end users will receive an error regarding retrieving e-mail addresses from Active Directory. Refer to Error Message below for instructions on how to address this issue.

To upgrade Secure Ad Hoc Transfer

  1. Run the installer for the new version. Refer to Installing Secure Ad Hoc Transfer for details, if necessary.

  2. Click Repair, then click Next.

  3. Follow the prompts to complete installation.

To restart IIS

  1. Click Start > Run.

  2. In the Run dialog box, type iisreset, then press ENTER.

A command prompt appears, IIS is reset, and then the screen closes.

Error message: "Unable to retrieve your e-mail address from the Active Directory server or e-mail address is invalid"

An error message stating that SAT is "Unable to retrieve your e-mail address from the Active Directory server or e-mail address is invalid" after upgrading from SAT version 2 to version 3, is caused by the fact that SAT retains the previous version's authentication settings when upgrading. If you want to use Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA), perform the procedure below.

To use IWA with an upgraded SAT installation

  1. Disable Anonymous Authentication and enable Windows Authentication in the following dialog box in the IIS manager:

  1. In SAT's web.config file (by default, C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\EFTAdhoc\web.config):
    1. Change authentication mode to Windows:

    1. Add the following text to the <bindings> section of the file:
