Not clear why you want to do this? Why not just use a symlink?

Hi all,

I am trying to mount a drive on my IBM i to another directory on the
**same** IBM i. Unfortunately PASE doesn't have the Linux/AIX mount(n1)
command so I am attempting the CL MOUNT(n2) command but am running into
issues. Btw, I am open to other options that would accomplish the same
(note symbolic links wont work for my situation).

Here are the steps I am taking:

CALL QP2TERM
$ mkdir -p /home/aaron/dir1
$ mkdir -p /home/aaron/dir2

ADDDIRE USRID(AARON SERVER1) USRD('Aaron Bartell') USER(AARON) <-- So I can
do STRNFSSVR below

STRNFSSVR SERVER(*ALL)

MOUNT TYPE(*NFS) MFS('localhost:/home/aaron/dir2')
MNTOVRDIR('/home/aaron/dir1')

And here is the error I get:

Recovery . . . : Contact your security officer, the object owner, or

not sufficient.

The Security Reference, SC41-5302, contains authority information for
the
operation.






Bottom

I've not used MOUNT before and the reference to *N is leaving me without
much direction. Anybody have suggestions of things to try.
