Could you please let me know ,how to find the file creation date time in SFTP server.

If the time stamp supplied by sftp's ls -l is not sufficient for you, you may need to fallback to ssh opening a session to the target host and issuing your ls --full-time command. Please be aware that not all *nix systems provide the file creation date/time.

In addition to what RudiC has already said, please also be aware that not all versions of the ls utility have a --full-time option.

To be able to answer your question we'd first have to know what operating system is running on the SFTP server and the filesystem type on which the files you want to examine reside on that server.

Did that ever succeed before?
No obvious solution to the problem. Try
- ssh -t user@host or ssh -tt user@host
- ssh user@host ls -l test.txt
- ssh -v user@host (up to three vs)
- search the web for that error message like I now did. Not too efficient to reproduce the results in here...
