SCP module/SSH

May 05 '17 at 11:33

Is there something else that needs to be set for the scp when the file exists?

I do not see any property, or does some setting exist on the server that controls this?


I don't understand the question.


If the file exists on the server, does the scp overwrite the file?

Windows 12 to a AIX server.

Maybe permissions on AIX prevent this, as I know there is a profile setting that determines the permissions on create file.


I don't know about your particular AIX case. I would think the typical case, if (for example) uploading to a file that already exists on a typical Linux computer in a directory owned by your SSH user account, that it would overwrite the existing file.
