Issue:
Error Message :
Cannot open file XXXXXXXXXX. Error: errno 2, No such file or directory" (U0063018)
U00063016 FT '1350077': The file 'XXXXXX' does not exist.

On FileTransfer, if destination is a HOSTG where mode=ALL, and you check "Erase source file", only one transfer succeeds. The rest fail with either: 

On Unix: Cannot open file XXXXXXXXXX. Error: errno 2, No such file or directory" (U0063018) 
On Windows: U00063016 FT '1350077': The file 'C:\temp\move\del.txt' does not exist. 
 
Cause:
Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: The hostgroup behavior treats each transfer as an individual process so the completion of one will remove the source file.
