Map a drive to folder QDLS from a XP PC
Posted on 2004-04-15
We are currently running a project to upgrade all our 95 pcs to XP but I need to resolve a mapping issue I am having, detailed below.
I am trying to map a drive on my XP pc to folder QDLS on a number of our AS/400s. Using a 95 pc, I can map without any issues whatsoever, however when I try the command below I can not map a drive. I have tried all the obvious solutions but still no joy.
net use x: \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\qdls
I have also tried the above command, specifying my AS/400 user profile and password but still nothing.
Error Message when using above command:
System error 53 has occurred.
The network path was not found.
My profile on the AS/400 is correctly configured through Directory Entries. I have read some reports stating password on XP and AS/400 must be the same but this would not be possible due to the number of users we have on location. I have also tried setting up the AS/400 IP number in to my HOSTS file and also tried starting NetServer on our AS/400, something which is not required to be started for 95 users to gain access but still no joy.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
