 This page outlines the issue where the Snapshot fails with the below error complaining about the Dynamic Link Rules file not having an expected extension.

Rule File the file has not an expected extension

This issue is due to the fact that the extension of the DLM Rule file is '.xml' which is not supported as a valid extension for DLM rule files.

Observed in CAST AIP
8.3.x (tick) 
Observed on RDBMS
CSS (tick)
Action Plan

The only supported extension for a DLM rule file is '.dlm.xml'.
So the solution is to

  1. Update the file extension to be 'XYZ.dlm.xml'.

For example:
The file name in the error screenshot attached is ignore_and_validate_rules_alltechnos.xml , hence the snapshot is not able to identify the file and throws an unexpected extension error.
So the solution will be to rename the file to ignore_and_validate_rules_alltechnos.dlm.xml 

Impact on Analysis Results and Dashboard

Impact of issue: The snapshot will fail with the error.
Impact after applying solution: The snapshot will be successful.
