The IBM i operating system uses 10-character names for sessions. So "XX.XXXXX.01" is 11 characters long, and it would've ignored the last character (giving you XX.XXXXX.0).

If you had multiple devices (ending with .02, .03, etc) this would've caused conflicts when it dropped the last digit...

Problem was fixed. For some reason, session names had to be tweaked
from XX.XXXXX.01 to XX.XXXXX.1

Check to see if you are specifying a device name in the emulator.
It's
best not to and allow the system to create a device as needed.
