Error Message :
U02005072 Directory could not be created. Error: '17(File exists)'

It has been found that executing a JOBF object utilizing a Unix agent can produce the below error message:
 
U02005072 Directory <directory_path> could not be created. Error: '17(File exists)'

This error can occur even if the directory path provided does NOT contain the file the user is attempting to send to it. It is possible to have multiple JOBF objects using the same agent while only a small number of these produce the above behavior even if they are all the same effected version.
