RE: System i Navigator does not allow mkdir



fixed

Signed on with the correct user through iNav?

*ALLOBJ should rule out any IFS authority issues, regardless of owner.

First I was thinking that the share for 'root' could be set to read only but Navigator doesn't use those shares, so not that.

Then I was thinking perhaps in "Application Administration" you were flagged in the "Deny" list but that's a flat up or down and you can see and work with objects so that can't be it.

Other have suggested your object authority is a potential but as you point out, you can do MkDir so that rules that out too.

You do have current IBM i Access and current service packs on the PC side correct?

Thanks Jim,

That makes sense, but not sure how to do that . . . checking i Nav
help so far has not revealed much . . . did find V7R1 .pdf on IBM site
so I grabbed that and the Application Admin .pdf and will ask Ops Mgr
when he shows.

Gary,

This could have something to do with which parts of iNav were installed on your PC. As an ADMIN, I have all parts installed, so I see all the options. I have users who are restricted, so what they get is the ability to see and control their printer output.

I'm not where I can see the install options, but check to make sure you have all the parts you need installed on your PC.

Larry,

In Sys i Nav, I open IFS /Root, then rt-clk the dir expecting to find
'New Folder', but the only option even close is "Create Shortcut" ???

I was able to take care of business with MKDIR from a command line,
but would like to learn why I can't Sys i Nav ?

The dir under which I want to create new is owned by our Operations
Mgr/Security Officer. However, I am a member of a group which shows
all rights except "Exclude" and "From AUTL"

Under that dir, I show as owner of all existing dir, but none of
these show a 'New Folder' option when rt-clked ?

Gary,

Do you mean it doesn't work or you can't find how?

If you can't find how, merely right click on the folder in
which you wish to create the new folder and select 'New Folder'

I can create IFS directories/folders from command line:
MKDIR('/somedir/lvl2/lvl3A')
MKDIR('/somedir/lvl2/lvl3B')
MKDIR('/somedir/lvl2/lvl3C')

Also delete
RMVDIR('/somedir/lvl2/lvl3C')

can't do either from System i Nav ?

tried searcing archives but no hits yet
