Never had to look at anything. Got to work today and there were all
the mapped drives, as is nothing had happened. My guess is that the
connection between the i and the two versions of Windows is somehow
different. Something did not get cleared with the XP connection.
Just glad I had the Windows 2000 box so I could access the data.

Can't help but wonder if a PTF is floating around that might have
addressed this, if only the sa cared.

Look for netserver (iNav will show all the server jobs running) or if msgs
about netserver profiles disabled. On the XP, you might see the map drives
with a red X indicating not currently connected.
Attempting to open the share should prompt user/pwd & reconnect the map
drive.

Subject: Disappearing shared folders


I have two computers.  One has Windows 2000, and the other has Windows
XP.  The XP box became unstable.  I was able to shut it down in a
controlled manner and reboot.  But, following that reboot, mapped
drives to the i are no longer accessible with XP  Same shares still
show up on the Windows 2000 box.

The i will be IPLed this weekend.

Is the network problem with the i or with the XP box?  If on the i,
will the ipl fix the problem or is some other step required?  The i is
at v5r4, hopelessly behind on PTFs.

I am hoping the issue gets fixed by the weekly IPL.  Is thre something
to look at in the meantime?
