iSeries netserver user profiles

We are having a problem where certain users who are trying to access folders on the iseris using run \iseriespo are getting authority issues. I have check in System I Navigator and those profiles have been disabled for the netserver. When I reactive them they get instantly disabled when the user attempts to access the folders again. The domain and iseries profiles are the same as are the passwords. Any ideas please?

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

Maybe a cached password try below

If you want to remove cached passwords for a particular system i or iSeries server, you can run CWBLOGON this way:

CWBLOGON iseriespo /c

The /c parameter tells CWBLOGON to clear the cached passwords for the designated entries.

    Cached passwords are a good starting point. If that doesn't help, what does your system audit journal show for T/VP entries during the time of disabling? For any such entries, look at the joblog of the job that sent the entries. Are there any useful messages there? The system history log should have a CPIB682 message at the time of disabling. The message should come from a QZLSSERVER job. Are there any messages in that job's joblog that might be helpful? (You might need to request F10='Display detailed messages' for the server joblogs and scroll backwards to see anything.) What operating version/release are you running? What PC operating system is running? Are these actual "folders"? Are are they just normal directories in the /root file system? Tom

    I see this happen when users have drives mapped to the iSeries, especially IT users that use both a Development user ID and a Production ID (they use the wrong one for the drive mapping). So, they are either using the wrong ID from the iSeries to access these folders or they are trying to use their Active Directory ID. If the mapping is set to reconnect at logon then this will happen often since the password is cached. I would delete the drive mapping and recreate it. If it continues then change the Connection Setting on the Properties tab of the iSeries in Navigator to 'Prompt Every Time'. This may be annoying to some people, but there is no doubt which ID and password is being used if you are being prompted for it.
