I posted this earlier and haven't received any response so I thought I'd
provide more information and maybe someone would have an idea:

gt0493 acs vse
T:(\\acs\power) /u/power POWER
A. Exported power queue on mainframe via NFS
B. Mounted POWER on /u/power on server acs - Aix 4.2 and
created entry in smb.conf to share /u/power as
comment = TST213 POWER Queues
path = /u/power
public = no
writable = yes
preserve case = yes
create mask = 0777
C. Mounted \\acs\power on pc - gt0493
D. From the RS/6000 "acs" I can see directories and files
in /u/power. I can copy data from /u/power to another directory
and I can copy files to directories in /u/power.
E. From the PC, if I use FTP's Interdrive NFS I can see folders
and files in the mapped drive power. I can copy data to and from
F. From the PC, using Samba, I can see folders and files in the mapped
drive power, but I cannot copy files to and from power.
When using Explorer to copy from power I get the following:
Error Performing inpage operation.
When using the command line to copy from power I get this:
The session was cancelled.
When using Explorer to copy to power I get the following:
Cannot copy "filename": Cannot read from the source file or disk.
When using the command line to copy to power I get this:
A device attached to the system is not functioning.
G. From the PC, using Samba I can copy files to and from any other mapped
Any ideas? We've spoken to the Connectivity Systems and they see no reason
NOT to work...we're attempting to eliminate the FTP NFS software. I would
appreciate any help or ideas.
