1. Log on to AS400 iSeries system.
2. Use the WRKSBS command to confirm that the Qserver subsystem is started 3. Use the Work with Active Job (WRKACTJOB) command to verify that there is a QZLSSERVER job running under the QSERVER subsystem. If the QZLSSERVER job is not active, you must restart iSeries NetServer. 4. Use the Work with TCP/IP Network Status (NETSTAT *CNN) command to verify that the following entries appear in the NETSTAT output file. If you cannot find these entries, then you must restart iSeries NetServer. ** netbios>001:27:44 Listen ** netbios>000:00:01 *UDP ** netbios>000:00:00 *UDP ** netbios>000:30:57 Listen ** cifs>427:49:42 Listen 5.

All configuration changes made to iSeries NetServer, with the exception of share and session administration, do not take effect until you stop and restart the iSeries server
Starting iSeries NetServer allows you to immediately begin sharing data and printers with your PC clients. iSeries NetServer starts automatically when TCP/IP is started.
If you ever need to restart iSeries NetServer, then follow these steps:
1. Open a connection to iSeries Navigator on your iSeries server. 2. Expand File System.
3. Right-click File Shares and select Open iSeries NetServer. 4. Right-click iSeries NetServer and select Start.
Validate that the iSeries Netserver profile is enabled
iSeries NetServer uses iSeries user profiles and passwords to allow network administrators to control how users can access data. In addition, an iSeries system value named QMAXSIGN specifies how many unauthorized sign-on attempts disable the user profile.
A user profile becomes disabled when the user tries to access iSeries NetServer a specified number of times with an incorrect password. A user profile cannot become completely disabled when connecting to an iSeries with iSeries NetServer. If a user exceeds the maximum number of sign-on attempts the user profile becomes disabled for only iSeries NetServer use.
Display disabled user profiles
To display the disabled iSeries NetServer users using iSeries Navigator, follow these steps: 1. In iSeries Navigator, connect to an iSeries server. 2. Expand Network.
3. Expand Servers.
4. Click TCP/IP to view list of TCP/IP servers available. 5. Right-click iSeries NetServer and select Open.
6. Click on File in the upper left corner.
