RE: Missing Folders



fixed

Bless you, 
what a coincidence that the same thing would happen to the same people at
the
same time, but perhaps not, I think this may come back to bite me again in
the
future.

I new it had to do with CWBBS and the registry but you would think that
uninstalling CA400 would fix all that, thank you Micosoft and IBM. My
partner
was also sending her feelers out at our IBM support and they completely
missed
the CURRENT_USER registry entry. They did sent allot of nice info on similar
problems, if you have a fax number I'll send it to you if you'd like. Thanks
again, it's nice to know that others have weird problems too.-EDS

How strange, exactly the same day you sent this message we had the same
bug, with the same conditions ( CA 313 ), SEQUEL included ...

Now for me it's solved, I spoke to IBM and found the proper person to
coach me.

If you still need it, here is the info.

For general information you have the APAR # II09493, available on
www.as400.ibm.com/clientaccess/

The bug comes only on the client ( PC ) because of mix of network
services. As a result, reg file is corrupted and one or two CA tasks
won't start when rebooting. You can check them on your active file list:

CWBBS - 'byte string' for folder connection and drive mapping
CWBNPRED - 'net print redirector'

If CWBBS is active, you can access folders from your Windows explorer
and map drives on them.

If only CWBNPRED is active, you can only see the printers.

The roadmap to fix all problems was :

1 - unistall last CA service pack
2 - reboot
3 - unistall CA
4 - reboot
5 - check with REGEDIT if you have following registry entries:

     in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
     SOFTWARE
     check if you have the folder IBM
     If yes, delete it.

     in HKEY_CURRENT_USER
     SOFTWARE
     check if you have the folder IBM
     If yes, delete it.

6 - reboot
7 - reinstall CA

CWBBS and CWBNPRED were started during the reboot and all came to
normal.
