iSeries Access for Windows
We a transitioning to a MAC client environment and need to map our IFS Folders to the MAC. However we can only see 32 files/folders at any given time. As one is deleted on the IFS another is shown on the MAC. Always 32. Cannot see any settings on Netserver that would cause this limitation. Any ideas?

Software/Hardware used:
Iseriers, MAC

    I've never run into anything related to this on the NetServer side. What exactly is "MAC"? I assume it's an Apple client, but which one? Do you have a Windows server in the network? If so, what version of Windows is it? What is your iSeries OS version/release? Tom

    We have assorted apple clients. Running OS V5R3.... not sure of windows server version but have no issues there. Just from Iseries NetServer. Others have reported this issue but I cannot seem to find a resolution anywhere.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there is no resolution. V5R3 has been out of support for a while. V5R4 brought some significant changes to how the *FILE host server and NetServer communicated with a Windows network, somewhat in parallel with changes that Microsoft was making. I'd expect that changes to Samba (or whatever technology is used in various Apple clients) were happening shortly after, but I don't know how to match all of the possible combinations together. A newer Apple client probably won't help until the server is brought up to date. V5R3 was designed to connect with MS protocols from the 2004-2005 timeframe and received some updates for a while after that. Can you log on to a Windows server in your network and view all of your iSeries shares from there? Knowing something about which systems can and can't see things might help narrow down what bits of technology are involved. Tom
