I periodically load an SDE geodatabase with about 1 GB of data that is delivered to me in an ArcGIS file geodatabase (.gdb) format. In order to run that job on FME Server I need to upload the .gdb to FME Server. I tried to upload it in various ways but since the .gdb is a directory containing lots of files in Windows, the upload dialog box does not accept the directory, instead it wants a file. I also tried to zip the .gdb, and then I got a success but no data was read from the .gdb. This is an excerpt from the log file:
2014-05-02 12:29:24| 1.9| 1.6|WARN |Generic Reader: Unable to guess a valid reader name from dataset 'D:\FME_TEMP\fmeservertst_10_0.gdb.zip_1399026562740_14984'. A NULL reader will be used instead.
2014-05-02 12:29:24| 1.9| 0.0|INFORM|Generic Reader: No format specific settings have been found for the NULL Reader -- default values as documented in the Reader/Writer manual will be used
Can anyone put me on the right track? I use FME Server 2013 and ArcGIS 10.0.
