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:
$ 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
MOUNT TYPE(*NFS) MFS('localhost:/home/aaron/dir2')
And here is the error I get:

much direction. Anybody have suggestions of things to try.
