NO, I've had on experience with IVR.
Could you write your network diagram, smth like:

AS/400                                                                      OS/2
*RWS controller type 3274            -> LAN ->     CM/2 (?)          ->  ?? ->
IVR box
*RMT display device type 3277                           <??????>

I mean, it has smth to do with how your network is defined.
Who is reporting 10030000 - IVR, OS/2 or AS/400 ?

Please, be more specific.

Best regards

          Alexey,
          Do you know anything about IVR's (Interactive Voice
Response).  The SNA code referenced 1003000 is one we get when using an IVR
attached to an AS/400 emulating 3277 devices. We have 48 configured devices
on the AS400 for the IVR with the last 22 varying on, varying off and active
with no apparent reason at any given time. The IVR is also attached remotely
to a box running os/2.

               I do not agree.
               Message says - "function is not supported". It means
that some function was
               requested in session, but remote partner could not
support this.
               Now let's think what function may have been
requested. Suppose it is 5250
               pasthrough. Why it was not supported by a target
system ? AS/400 does support
               this SNA function, so some resource was not
available or activated. In AS/400
               case it can be, for example, that there's no
subsystem with applicable
               communication entries active, or there's no virtual
device to associate with
               remote 5250 session.
               For me the code description is clear enough and
gives a good indication where to
               look for a problem.

               In typical in-depth technical writing, my version of
the SNA Sense Code
               manual says the following:

               1003    "Function Not Supported:  The function
requested is not supported.
                The function may
                       have been specified by a formatted request
code, a field in an RU,
               or a control
                       character".

                       0000    No Specific code applies.

               My question is this.  Why did the developers of SNA
even bother coding for
               this error.  It seems
               like a 10030000 is a generic "we can't really tell
what the heck is wrong,
               but it's not working so we'll
               spit out this error".

               Sorry to be of no greater assistance.
