Found the issue and fixed it.
I had installed the flat file interface on my developing system and it works fine there.
but when i push that to VM’s i saw it was not working.
Fix is that the Flat File Interface app has couple of scheduled tasks that need to run. I see that it run fine locally on the developing system with those scheduled tasks are active. But on VM when you deploy the package it needs to be enabled in the m2ee.yaml config for this to work. Below are the changes you need to add to your m2ee.yaml file related to flat file interfaces, after adding these 2 lines and restarting the service, its working fine now..
