SYMPTOMS

When a user has not been added to the AS400 System Distribution Directory, the following error message occurs on the SNA Server computer when trying to browse to the folders on the AS400 system:

No Folders found in <AS400 system name>.

CAUSE

The AS400 User ID that is used for the SNA Server Shared Folders definition must be added to the AS400 System Distribution Directory when you set up the SNA Server Shared Folders.

RESOLUTION

Make sure that the AS400 is configured correctly and that the account <AS400 User ID> has permissions to access shared folders on <AS400 system name>.

To add the AS400 User ID to the System Distribution Directory, do the following:

  1. Log on to the AS400 system as a security administrator or security officer.
  2. On the AS400 command line, type the following, and then press the ENTER key:

    WRKDIRE

  3. When the "Work with Directory Entries" screen appears, on the "Opt" line, type "1" (Add). In the "User ID" field, type the AS400 User ID, and in the "Address" field, type the address. Press the ENTER key.
  4. When the "Add Directory Entry" screen appears (this is the basic information required to add the User ID to the System Distribution Directory), press the ENTER key.

NOTE: The "ADDDIRE" command can also be used on the AS400 system to accomplish the same task in a similar way. Additional steps may be needed for this. For further information on that procedure, refer to the AS400 online Help or IBM documentation on System Distribution Directory.

MORE INFORMATION

Please refer to the AS400 Help or IBM documentation for a description on each field of entry. To view the AS400 online Help for the appropriate field, press the F1 (or CMD1) key while the cursor is positioned in the field where you need help.
