First, I wanted to "open" a folder to a Sharepoint server and let that box
take stuff that we are placing into an IFS folder. This was before we
figured out that NFS is a better solution than QNTC.

Second, BRMS was unable to get a complete backup because the Sharepoint box
had a lock on the NFS folder. We finally were able to get that resolved.

Third, when I look into the QNTC folder, I'm seeing lots of objects with
DDIR as their attribute, including the folder I created with MKDIR
/QNTC/Sharepoint I would expect to see only the folder I had created.

Fourth, when the operator initiates a GO SAVE 21 via Ops Console, the
console locks up. Here's his description of the problem:

<<When I say console locked up I mean:

Screen goes blank except for input inhibited
Sits there for 12 hours
Have to close console session and restart console
Checked tape from save listing contents to spool file
Last thing saved was document library objects

That's locked up.>>

I would call it something else, but that's beside the point. I'm going to
try to get a job log from him, but I'm in Texas, he's in Kentucky, and the
box is in Cleveland.

I am losing something in translation and I want to make sure that I am not
assuming anything. By "make the system available some Wintel
servers" do you mean make some Wintel servers available to the iSeries by
drilling down through QNTC, or do you mean you want to make the iSeries
available to the Wintel servers by the Wintel servers being able to map a
drive to a directory on the iSeries? When you said QNTC I am assuming the

I would think that a full system save (GO SAVE, 21) would, implicitly,
omit QNTC. Otherwise, in a shop with hundreds of devices listed in qntc a
backup would run "for ever". And some shops would give their "left one"
to be able to back up their PC's this way. I can't seem to save any files
on my PC with
SAV DEV('/qsys.lib/rob.lib/rob.file')
Cause . . . . . : The system does not allow object
/qntc/gdsl61/qtemp/emaillist to be saved or restored.

So, exactly what problems are you encountering?
