It's getting rather disgusting how lousy the iSeries is as a file server. 
I know that mapping a drive to a Domino directory is extremely frowned 
upon.  And I can respect their concerns as far as accessing nsf files 
goes.  However, when I want to send in a nsd or notes.ini for analysis I 
don't dare drag and drop it via iSeries Navigator or mapping a drive.  Too 
often the data gets scrambled.  And why can I not drag a spool file from 
iSeries navigator and put it into Notes?  No, first I have to put it on 
the desktop and then into Notes.  About the only thing that works is ftp. 
When I open a pmr on this it is suggested that I have each of my 800+ 
users open iSeries Navigator and change some option to associate by file 
type to translate it right.  Funny thing is, if I use NT as my file server 
I don't have to do that crud.

I don't suppose there is some magic CCSID that Domino could start using 
that would minimize this issue?  Granted, that's a bandaid solution for 
something that IBM needs to fix in NetServer and iSeries Navigator.  But 
if those lads have no interest in improving their product...
