One common issue to deal with when accessing network drives from the IBM i is authority. When you access a network drive from the IBM i, as discussed in previous TechTips, the user profile that is assigned to the job is the user that is being authenticated on the Windows server. One way to resolve this is to synchronize the passwords between the IBM i and Windows, but this will reduce your password protection to the level of the Windows server, because once someone cracks the Windows password protection, they now have the IBM i user name and password.


In this TechTip, I will show you how to change the active user profile for the currently running job.

People have been using paper to write on for more than 5,000 years, so it's not surprising that there is resistance to giving it up in the workplace, even when it's more cost-efficient to do so.


The papyrus plant was used to make a form of paper in ancient Egypt as early as 3500 BC. Modern paper is believed to have originated in China around 200 AD and migrated to Europe in the early 12th century. When the production of paper became mechanized in the early 19th century, the hoi polloi (that's Joe six-pack) got their first taste of mass information from inexpensive books and newspapers.
