Data Domain connectivity to IBM iSeries (AS/400) as NFS mount

We are attempting to use a DD-530 as a means of writing iSeries save files to it mounted as an NFS.  I am able to successfully mount the NFS on the iSeries but I have been unsuccessful in being able to perform any operation to the mount from the iSeries.

Does anyone else have the connectivity scenario and the issue that I have described?

What follows is a chronological sequence of iSeries commands and responses from the DDR-530 as captured by the log watch debug/ddfs.info command.

The net effect of all that preceded is not being able to read or write to the mounted NFS on the iSeries.

Re: Data Domain connectivity to IBM iSeries (AS/400) as NFS mount

Did you get this resolved? If you wanted to send Save Files to the datadomain, I would have mounted the NFS to a windows server and then scripted a CL to ftp to the Windows server.
