Text File Connector with Partial Startup enabled fails in MetaMatrix

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We have requirement of deleting the file from shared location after caching the data through Materialization Processes.
  • So here is the sequence of events that happens and we noticed that materialization job fails with error message that could not find the file even though file exists.
    • SAP system places the file into shared folder by 11 pm
    • MetaMatrix Materialization process runs @ 12.00 AM to cache the data and then delete the file from shared location.
  • We noticed that even though SAP system places the file by 11 pm,  MetaMatrix materialization process fails often with error that could not find a file.  Then, if we stop and restart connector binding and then kicking off MV job manually runs fine.
