I file an IFS directory on my AS/400 under /root/test I need to use connect direct to move my file to a mainframe but I am running into an error finding the file when I run my direct connect. I have sent database file before but the ifs directory setup is giving me problems.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I am not familiar with the Connect Direct product, but perhaps I can help with the IFS.

You mentioned that the file is under the “/root/test” directory. There is no IBM-supplied “/root” directory. The “root” fle system in the IFS is “/”.

So, unless you have made a directory named “root” under the IFS root “/”, there will be no directory with that name.

I suspect your file will be found in the “/test” directory.

    Additional observation: If you are viewing the IFS in Operations Navigator (iSeries Navigator), you will see an entry under "File Systems/Integrated File System" named "Root". However, this is not the name of a directory, rather it is the name of the file system. To see the path name of any file in the file system, right click the file and select Properties. There will be a "Path" name. To access a file using the green screen WRKLNK command or to access it using a program, the "root" do not use the "root" name, just use a forward slash, i.e. "/". Hope that clarifies it a bit.
