over the last years, I have encountered several cases, where the Seeburger EDI/B2B-Adapters were correct installed on a customer environment, however the logs were not always configured.

If no configuration is made, the Seeburger-Adapters will per default write their information into the default-trace / application log of the PI-System.


However, since the adapters provide the possibility to create an own log per adapter (e.g. AS2, X400, OFTP, SFTP) I would always recommend to do the log configuration as part of the initial adapter installation/configuration. In case of any trouble you can then easily view all necessary information and set the trace level per adapter. Also the logs can be formatted in different ways for easy viewing.


Although the log configuration is explained in the Seeburger Adapter Documentation, I would like to share the following Document that was created by some Seeburger Consultants to have all steps available for this log config in a easy-readable way with several additional screenshots.



The following (temporary) Link allows for viewing and downloading the document (as pdf).

    Hi I have the same error message ‘Could not create an authentication client!>>’ from Seeburger SFTP Receiver. But like the other people above I get the same Download message.  Can you please provide the document again? Thanks Naas

      thank you for updating the link!

      Do you know if this solution also works for PI 7.4 and Seeburger 2.2.2?

      Thank you!

      I have updated the Link, but please keep in mind that the document is from 2013 and most likely outdated unless you have still an older environment.
