    Can you clarify what is meant by "location" as well as by "IFS related commands", please? Multiple answers are possible. The general answer might be "In library QSYS" because that's where IBM installs commands that are part of the operating system. But there are a couple thousand commands -- most of which aren't generally thought of as "IFS related commands". Also, areas such as Qshell have their own kind of 'commands' for IFS activity; and they're not exactly stored in the /QSYS.LIB file system. Can you clarify what you need to get done?

    Hmmm All commands are in www.ibm.com - look around the manuals section for iSeries - some great reading in there

    Actually you could say the IFS is not the Integrated File System but the i(Series) File System as even the "Native" QSYS file system is part of that.

    Here is one of the command I included on my web term paper: Create Directory (CRTDIR) -- This command allows you to create directories inside any of the non-QSYS.LIB file systems in the IFS. CRTDIR syntax is simple in that you specify the IFS path name of the directory you wish to create. If you want to create a directory called '/S400' off the '/HOME' directory under the IFS root, you can specify an absolute path name by coding CRTDIR in the following way: In addition to creating the directory, there are other CRTDIR parameters that allow you to specify data and object authority for the new directory.
