Has anyone encountered this issue with the FTPS adapter?

Error: Failed to open storage, fires event ID 0 with the ELDOS FTPS Adapter and event ID 5743 with BizTalk Server 2006.

It is likely that the adapter was unable to open the specified certificate storage. Please re-check that the path and the password (if any) are correct.

Hello Innokentiy. Thanks for your reply. Can you tell me if there is a "How To" document available for setting up certificates with the BizCrypto FTPS and SFTP adapters?

There's no such how-to, sorry. Actually, there does exist one, but I am not sure if it is the one that you are asking about.

Both FTPS and SFTP adapters require two sets of certificates (FTPS) or keys (SFTP) to be set: the certificates used for server authentication and the ones used for client authentication. Client-side certificate-based authentication is optional and may be omitted (FTPS) or replaced with other authentication method (SFTP), such as password-based.

The easiest way to set up certificates is to put them to the files (e.g., server.pem and client.pem) and assign the paths to the corresponding properties of the adapter ("Trusted Certificates File" and "Certificate Path" for FTPS adapter, "Trusted Keys File" and "Private Key File" for SFTP adapter). If you do not need to use client authentication, simply leave the "Certificate Path"/"Private Key File" property empty. You can also set the "Trust All Certificates"/"Trust All Keys" property to true to disable validation of server-side certificates for testing purposes.
