Re: Problems mapping a drive to the IFS



fixed

Anythong common among the PCs that can't(OS, SP levels etc). I know that we
had issues very similar with PC's with SP3 for XP acting "strangely" (i.e.
could connect one time and not the next) even after multiple reboots. Did a
test on a vitual with SP3 same issue, restored to prior SP3 and it was
fine. Hapened to abut 10% of the OC's with SP3.

I do not think this is an iSeries issue but we have exhausted the things we
know to try on the Windows side of this. We have some folders in the IFS
that we allow users to do drive mapping to using NetServer. The NetServer
name is as400pct. We have multiple DNS names all pointing to the same IP
address on the iSeries. Doing a drive map to some of these names works but
for one I does not . We can map to the name of the NetServer (e.g.
Netserver\Shares) we can map to DNS names (e.g. DNS1.pct.edu\Shares and
DNS2.pct.edu\Shares but DNS3.pct.edu\Shares does not work for everyone but
does work for some. For those that it does not work for if they go to a
different PC it works as their userid. If we take the PC out of the windows
domain all the names work the same. Put the PC back in the domain and all
work but one. Our Windows team says it's an iSeries issue for IBM to fix.
The iSeries team says it can't be because a PC not in the domain works it's
only when it's in the domain th!
at it does not. Has anyone ever seen this and could it be an iSeries
issue? iSeries userids are not getting disabled for NetServer and if they
were that user could not connect from any PC but they can connect from one
and not another.
