Moving files from the IFS to a Network Share

I am trying to use the Move task to move files from the AS400 IFS to a Windows share and receive the error message:
[8098 - move file] com.linoma.dpa.util.SMBNetworkFile incompatible with com.linoma.dpa.util.LocalFile

Can I move files to a Network share?

You cannot use the Move task to move an iSeries file from or to a network share.

The reason for this is that on an iSeries, the move command does not actually move any data, it only changes the path.

A work-around is to copy the files and then delete them from the source.
