Is NFS a potential solution? User authentication happens with the PID/UID
that is a part of the user profile so they are tied together.
You don't specify which level of IBM i your system runs, and if there are
SMB compatibility issues. Could the SMB version on the desktop be
contradictory to the SMB version on the server?

Subject: Samba as alternative to NetServer - How to use USRPRF Password
We are using IBM-i with NetServer for about 1.5 Years now.
Since the Beginning there where Problems with Access to Netserver over WAN
(IPSec Tunnel) .We had some Tickets with IBM and the made some PTFs to fix
various things. (MA47224, MA47302, Other Problems with Starting exe Files
where we received a Workaround wich shoots other thngs as we found out
But after all we are not really satisfied with the compatibility of
NetServer with Windows-10.
First of all: I dont want to store my files outside of out AS400. I know all
alternatives and i dont need any suggestions or discussion on this ;-)
Whats the state now:
We are now considering using Samba on IBM-i but the problem i have is that
it has a seperate User Database which i really dont like.
Is someone of you using Samba on AS400 and how do you handle this problem.
I thought that when nothing other is possible i would register with
QIBM_QSY_VLD_PASSWRD and send new Passwords to a Job via DataQueue which
calls pdbedit to change the users in the samba-db. But this is not a nice
Systeminfo: IBM-i 7.4 TR1, Power-S812, No Virtualization, Single OS Instance
. Problems mostly over low latency Networks ( ca 10ms-20ms)
