I have ran into that. But on development IBM i box, I did have my source file a different length than other IBM i box.

When it happens, I go back to reliable Green Screen and do a SNDNETF & RCVNETF.

I also have to verify that I am Actually connected/On-Line with the other system.

General speaking, if both systems are ON-LINE in RDI 9.5.1, and the same size. The "Save as..." on another IBM i box seems to work for me...

PS. Does someone know how to update my connections to automatically connect when I start RDI 9.5.1. I guess I am missing that...
Note, I have already saved my credentials for each IBM i box. (Test/QA/Production)

Subject: [WDSCI-L] RSEF1002 Operation Failed: File System Input or Output error

I get this error very often when trying to do a SAVE-AS from RSE. It creates them member on the system, but the member contains no records.

Very frustrating that I can' simply create a copy of a source member by editing and doing a SAVE-AS.

Error details say: Message reported from file system: Unexpected error retrieving list with {0}

Anyone else see this?
