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.
