connect:direct – create a new Windows Folder on the SNODE

Windows 2000 Server
I've been requested to send a set of files from MVS to a Windows Server each month. Each set of files is to be created in a new dated, say, RRSyymm, Folder. It's expected that some connect:direct specification will be able to create a new Folder each month on the destination Server. Can / How do I do that?

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

Your question isn’t really clear, but I’ll try to answer anyway…
It sounds as if you can use a scheduled job which runs a batch file to perform this work. You can either map the remote drive in the batch file, or just copy using the UNC to the remote shared folder. You can use date logic to create the required destination folders. I’ve got a batch file which includes all the logic included for creating folders based on date. If this is what you need then I’ll post it.

    Thanks Tom, would be very gratefull for the offered posting. To elaborate: I have a number of files in z/os region. I need to transmit these to a remote Windows site each month using a scheduled JCL that invokes Connect:Direct (site standard). Users at remote site require a new Folder to be created each month and have all files transmitted to that, rather than have a set of dated files: makes it much easier for them for downstream manipulation. Local knowledge on Connect:Direct, mine included, isn't too good as we've always been FTP & XCOM Users. Also, we don't have a Connect:Direct Windows 'front-end' other than foreground invocation under MVS. There's local doubt as to whether C:D can actually create a new Folder on a remote machine, as, that's perceived as 'creating a new PATH': supposedly a 'no no'. My disjointed reading of available Manuals seems to suggest the possiblity but I'm having trouble homing on the solution quickly enough.
