I infer the SYSNAME() for the DIRE needs to be reset to *LCL because the directories were restored from when the system had a different local name.? Normally this would not be an issue, because changing to a new physical system would have the new system installed to replace the old system; i.e. keeping the same name [and serial number]. Only the USRID() portion of the existing directory entry was provided in the quoted text, so I am not sure of what the USER() is. Try the following command; specify USER(ED) if the invocation using USER(*SAME) indicates a user is required:


For the above to be generally effective, some old configurations may be required to remain so notifications & distributions can get to the local system using the old name. There is a RNMDIRE to correct that situation, to make the USRID update; from OLDUSRID() to NEWUSRID(). From WRKDIRE, at least IIRC, there is a method to schedule the rename, because it must run only after both /QDLS and SNA/DS features are inactive.

Has anyone tried deleting an active entry from the
directory entries ? We have moved to a new iSeries
system. All the directory entries too were moved.
I thought of changing my directory entry to the new
address (FUNAS2 to QRAAS41).

The entry did not get deleted because there were
some objects still active, I got two options:
C to Cancel & G to change from Local to Remote user.
I gave G. I have been sending spool files through
e-mails for quite some time but now it says that
this facility is not allowed for a remote user.

I have pasted the messages below. Has anyone come
across this before ?
Any help is welcome to solve this problem.

In the message further down there is some mention
about changing the node id for the user, any idea
which command to use to change the node id. Here
is what the message says: 'change the node ID for
user ED to the node ID of this local system in the
local system distribution directory.'.
