QNTC Question

IBM iSeries
iSeries networking
QNTC File System
Hello. I need Some Help with QNTC. When I try to do: wrklnk '/qntc/*' It takes about 6 to 7 hours to build the whole list of servers & PCs. It takes approximately 10 minutes to list 1 Server/PC. Also I get the following Msg: “Session initialization error with Network Server ABC1.” Message ID . . . . . . : CPDB050 When I try to use iSeries Navigator it takes about the same 6 to 7 hours to open the list of servers/PCs. If I keep my PC running with open QNTC list only then I can access Servers/PCs and run my network jobs. As soon as I close iSeries Navigator, I can not access any Servers/PCs under QNTC. I did a research on line, there are just few posting about this problem and all of it is very old from 2000-2003. We are running V5R2M0 on model 820 Any Help will be greatly appreciated. Thank You Gary

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

V5R2 is pretty old and no longer supported – you’d be best off upgrading the release and then you could take advantage of any improvements that IBM may have made to this functionality.

    IBM improved a lot of their java processing speeds for the iSeries navigator in later i5/OS versions. I'm assuming it is the same with accessing windows machines. You might want to try it the other way, by having your windows systems access the AS400. Mapped network drives is one idea.

    What is your purpose for accessing PCs from the AS400?

    I had the same problem - except for me it was more like 30 minute wait. I think it was improved in V5R4, but I never checked. What I did was write a short CL pgm STRQNTC then added a SBMJOB for it from QSTRUP (IPL startup ) program. It runs in batch right after IPL, and by the time I need it, its already has populated the list. I don't need to run again until after next IPL. Here is the code for the CL pgm.
    /*   Creates a test directory & then deletes it                */
    /*     This forces QNTC to build a list of available shares    */
                 MONMSG     (CPF0000)
                 MKDIR      DIR('/QNTC/WINSERVER1/IKSAR/TEST$$')
                 RMVDIR     DIR('/QNTC/WINSERVER1/IKSAR/TEST$$')
