Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Lemme ask...
Did you try CIFS?

Or Samba on the iSeries configured to serve CIFS?

I know the answer in any case. I wonder if the iSeries does NFSv4? If it does there are MANY things to benefit from.

it certainly could do NFSv4

New Not what I was asking. And you know that.
I was just wondering if the iSeries OS supported NFSv4.

I KNOW LINUX DOES. Especially with a Kernel after 2.6.19, but even better with 2.6.20.

This works very nicely:
/nfs/data               192.168.1.*(rw,fsid=0,no_root_squash,sync,no_subtree_check)\n/nfs/data/stor          192.168.1.*(rw,wdelay,nohide,insecure,root_squash,no_subtree_check)\n/nfs/data/music         192.168.1.*(rw,wdelay,nohide,insecure,root_squash,no_subtree_check)


And damn its as fast as line speed will allow, except that GigE on Linux really does require TOE NICs, or TCP Offload NICs.

New I did try CIFS.
Samba on the iSeries I did not try. AFAIK, v4 is only supported in AIX and Z/OS, but that could be wrong.

     NFS or SMB? - (mmoffitt) - (12)
         Interesting - I've never tried it... - (imric) - (6)
             What? - (mmoffitt)
             Do *NOT* use SMB. Use NFS. - (mmoffitt) - (4)
                 Lemme ask... - (folkert) - (3)
                     if you put a linux partition on iSeries - (boxley) - (1)
                         Not what I was asking. And you know that. - (folkert)
                     I did try CIFS. - (mmoffitt)
         I would think it comes down to the server implementation. - (static) - (4)
             No, no, you're doing fine. ;0) - (mmoffitt) - (3)
                 That is due to CIFS vs SMB. - (folkert) - (1)
                     I'm sure it will. - (mmoffitt)
                 Ah... that I don't know. - (static)

Oh right, your thing. Yeah, that stinks.
