I have experimented that the sequence of mapping drive is important. I f
you need QDLS, you should map first to QDLS and then to other IFS share.

I think it is related with the authentication mechanism. The credentials
used for QDLS can be reused with the Netserver but the credential from the
Netserver cannot be reused with QDLS...

After several attempts of not working, rebooting PC, now working.
Other users had similar issues, got them working.

Not sure what it was.

Our one 3rd party app uses QDLS, wish they would convert.

A few questions:

1. What user profiles are having this problem on that R&D LPAR?
* all users?
* or only certain user profiles?

For historical reasons, QDLS was linked to the SNA directory; such that to
use QDLS, each user profile must have a SNA directory entry -- issue
WRKDIRE on the Production LPAR, and on the Development LPAR, and see what
is different (or missing.)

But, this begs the question: why are you still using QDLS?

* QDLS has been "deprecated" for a long time, since at least V5R1 or
* QDLS performs much worse than the "root" file system and QOpenSys in
the IFS
o I read that QDLS is approximately 5 times slower than the "real"
* QDLS is limited to the old MS-DOS style "8.3" file naming conventions
* QDLS files have size limitations much smaller than in the "real" IFS
* etc.

I have a mapped drive to the root.
Why would QDLS folder not be accessible, all others are.
No error message.

Works fine on Production LPAR, R&D LPAR not working
