I have an AS400 and a Sun NAS. With much effort we have the network people EXPORT the NAS. I did MOUNT and it works to that level. The NAS is an appliance without much UNIX controller. They are using Windows 2000 for the security server. The problem is, I have to be signed on as the QSECOFR (UID=0) to see anything in the directory. I don't want to do that and can't find exactly what we need to do. I have *ALLOBJ and every other authority possible and they made me administrator on that side too. None of this helps.
You have any suggestions or sites that might help with this? I have read a lot of IBM stuff but everything is AS400-UNIX and without a Windows security server.
Well, I think you're into some new territory here. I searched and couldn't find anything about this. I think you are at a point where you need to send an e-mail to both IBM AS400 support and Microsoft support and explain what you are doing and what your problem is. With Microsoft, you might try directing it to the SAK group that is responsible for the version of OS that is used in NAS products such as IBM 200 and 300. Good luck and sorry I'm not more help.
