On September 5th, I upgraded one of my database servers from SLES 11 SP4 to SLES 12 SP2. I performed an upgrade in place.

The database admin let me know that he has been using a script (for years) to backup the DB2 database and FTP the backup to another server, if the backup is successful. The FTP is now failing with message
Code:
Wrapper for lftp to simulate compatibility with lukemftp
FTP failed.  Return Code: 8
I chose the upgrade in place option to preserve all of the system settings (ssh keys, config files, etc.).

If I attempt to initiate an FTP from this same server I get "Wrapper for lftp to simulate compatibility with lukemftp" prior to the prompt for my login name.

If I attempt the initiate an FTP from a SLES 11 server I get a 'Connected to ..." message followed by that systems' ftp_banner.

What could be the cause of this issue?
