You may simply need to add a Directory entry for the User ID:

Working with Directory Entries

On the command line type:
WRKDIRE <press enter>

This will take you to the “Work with Directory Entries” screen.
Page down and look for the User ID.

It should look something like this:
User ID Address Description
TSMITH S1055VDW Tom Smith

If not, you should add an entry:

From the “Work with Directory Entries” screen start by filling out the 3 fields like this:
(You must be the security officer or have *SECADM authority to work with this display.)

Opt User ID Address
1 TSMITH S1055VDW <===(This should be changed to your system name.)
<press enter>

Fill out the additional fields in the “Add Directory Entry” screen like this:

User ID/Address . . . TSMITH S1055VDW <==(This should be your system name.)
Description . . . . . . Tom Smith
System name/Group . . . S1055VDW
User profile . . . . . TSMITH
<press enter>

Now to Map the drive. I perfer to Map the drives in iSeries Navigator:

In iSeries Navigator go to File Systems / File Shares in the left pane
Right click on the share in the right hand pane and choose Map Network Drive
Choose your drive letter, enter your iSeries User ID and Password and select Reconnect at logon
Your mapped drive should now show up in Windows Explorer
