WebSphere nodes no longer syncing

Came across this issue recently, took em a while to get it solved. None of the nodes could sync with the deployment manager due to following error:

ADFS0119E: An unexpected exception occurred: java.io.FileNotFoundException: File download failed: java.io.IOException: ADFS0140E: The file transfer server cannot download the download%2Fcells%2FSocialCell%2FLotusConnections-config%2F%0D__5655077188255192541.tmp file. The server returned HTTP error code 500.

This got me puzzled for a while, I searched for a file starting with D_ in the Deployment managers LotusConnections-config directory but could not find anything.

I deleted profiles/dmgr/wstemp/, profiles/dmgr/temp/, profiles/dmgr/config/temp/, no change.
I then manually ran the syncnode command using the -trace option to generate some more logging.
This is what I got:

[2/25/15 10:55:28:451 CET] 00000002 FileTransferC < openConnection Exit com.ibm.net.ssl.www2.protocol.https.e:https://hostname: 9043/FileTransfer/transfer/download%2Fcells%2FSocialCell%2FLotusConnecti ons-config%2F%0D__8828909330741519452.tmp?compress=true&deleteOnCompleti on=true [2/25/15 10:55:28:477 CET] 00000002 FileTransferU > streamToString

Error 500:

[2/25/15 10:55:28:479 CET] 00000002 FileTransferC 3 getResponseCode:
server error stream = Error 500: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException:
Invalid CR not followed by LF

Not really getting me more info, except that I was still having an issue with a file starting with D_

But after having another look at the LotusConnections-config directory I saw something I did not realize before.
In the file list I had a file called ? with a size of 0 bytes


This seems to be an issue for the sync process, it cannot handle that file. Not sure how it got there, but after removing it sync ran fine
