There are 2 servers where I can see the shares from the IBM i. Both are
domain controllers so there are no "local" users, so it is assumed they are
domain users. (The server where this worked is one of those domain
controllers.) The IBM i cannot see the shares on servers that are not
domain controllers, nor can it see the shares on Win7 workstations on the
domain.

The above courtesy of my Windows Guy.

I believe I am reduced to the app picking up the file from the IFS.

Two things:

It's either all upper case or all lower case, right?
Item 2 of 2: Not just the share name you are trying to access, but are
there ANY share names on that Windows 7 box that are over 12 characters?
Let me reiterate. Let's say you have two shares on that Windows server.
One is named "ibmishare" and one is named
"NetworkShareForAllTheDweebsInAccounting". Now, even if you are only
trying to access "ibmishare" from QNTC you will have issues simply by the
existence of that other share. We actually setup another virtual server
because we could not beat people into submission to stop making large
share names.

Funny thing is, IBM has this issue not only on IBM i but also on zSeries.

It's best if you can pitch QNTC out the window and start using NFS. It
takes more setup. One side has to 'export' and the other side has to
'mount' it.

Hi Vern,

I tried that, at your suggestion, on both Win7 workstations and it didn't
help on either. Might be time to talk to my Windows guy.

This was discussed here recently - I had trouble with setting up mapped
drives from Win 7 64-bit and fixed it with the change Steve mentions.

To explain further, take these steps to change a local security policy -
1. In Run, type "secpol.msc" and press enter - or type this in the
search
box when you click on Start
2. Click on the plus sign by "Local Policies" to open it further
3. Click on "Security Policies" to get a list in the right-hand panel
4. Find the “Network security: LAN Manager authentication level” item
and
double-click it
5. Set it to “Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session security if
negotiated”

Here is a link that gives an alternative if you have Win 7 Home -

Jeff -
Check the authentication method being used on the W2008 server, and
verify that the Windows 7 workstation is set the same way. IIRC,
Windows 7
uses NTLMv2, which IBM i doesn't yet support.

All,

Yesterday I moved a Windows app from a W2008 Server to a Windows 7 Pro
workstation, both 64-bit.

The IBM i (7.1) creates a file in the IFS that will be input to this
app,
then copies that file onto the Windows machine via the CPY command like
this:

CPY OBJ('/UserFolders/file.txt') TODIR('/qntc/workstationname/temp')
TOCCSID(*CALC) REPLACE(*YES)


This worked fine on the W2008 Server, but fails on the Win7 workstation
with "CPDB053 Error exchanging security information for user JEFF on
network server <pcname>." The explanation goes on to say "Cause . . . .
.
: The IBM i NetClient (QNTC) file system has encountered an
error when authenticating user JEFF with a network server <pcname>."

1) The workstation in question has c:\temp shared as temp with everyone
having read/write access. (Same as the W2008 server it used to be on).

2) My user ID, JEFF, has the same password on the IBM i and the Windows
domain. Neither the workstation where this does not work nor the server
where it does work have a local user JEFF. User JEFF only exists on the
domain and the IBM i.

3) If I WRKLNK and drill into QNTC, I can see both the W2008 Server and
the
workstation. If I drill into the W2008 Server I see the temp share
defined
on it. If I drill into the workstation I do not see the share. I
created
a temp share on my Win7 desktop and it doesn't work there either.

4) File and Print sharing is enabled and allowed through the firewall.

5) Windows explorer can see the temp share on the Win7 workstations.
It's
the IBM i that cannot.

I found threads where this was an issue in 5.4 and 6.1, fixed by PTFs.
I
must be missing something obvious.

Suggestions?
