Has anyone else had a problem with IFS folders where they have suddenly gone to read-only when accessing them from an XP client using WIndows Explorer and UNC or mapped network drive.
Checking the folder permissions on the iSeries shows that public has all rights, but the properties on the PC show the folder as read-only. Removing the check from the read-only box makes no difference, and the check re-appears.
Using an FTP client with the same AS400 credentials works, we are able to write files to the folder.
Looking in the attributes of the IFS ROOT show that the read-only attribute is set to YES. However this has not been changed (as far as I know, and I am one of only 2 people in the company who would have access to do that). What are other people's systems attributes set to?
I am in the same location as the iSeries so we're not going through firewalls etc.
