All,

I would like to mount a share that has been created on our Dell PowerVault 500 over a directory named /NAS that I have created in the iSeries IFS.  I have started the NFS server and verified the connection to the NAS from the iSeries using the PING command.  When I attempt to mount the share, the MOUNT command fails with a CPFA0A9 - Object not found.  I suspect that there is an authority problem of some kind, but am not sure how to diagnose this problem.
The iSeries is running V5R4 OS.

The mount command and reply are:
> mount type(*NFS) mfs('nf500:/as400backup/') mntovrdir('\NAS')
  Object not found.  Object is /as400backup/.    

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am not all that familiar with the Dell range of storage systems, however I have a feeling to use the share you will need to use the QNTC file system.

I found out that the PowerVault is using the Windows Storage Server Standard. I found the directory entry for the NAS in the QNTC file system but have not been able to transfer files back and forth yet. The owner of the folder /QNTC/NF500 is QDFTOWN.
