My iSeries is running v7r1 and I am now having the same problem as a customer of ours running v6r1, and that is that if I add a symbolic link for QDLS into a normal IFS directory, then Windows Explorer shows it as a 1kb file. Ubuntu Nautilus does not show it at all. It works as expected in WRKLNK. This used to work fine on V5r4 (iSeries).
The ADDLNK command I used:
ADDLNK OBJ('/qdls') NEWLNK('/dir1/qdls')
Thanks very much, Mark W.
