You need to have a File Share on the directory into which you are trying to place the PDF file. To check for the share or to create the share:
1. At a command line, type FTASTIC/FTTOOLS and hit enter.
2. Do an F8 at the warning screen.
3. Take option 36, ‘Work with iSeries NetServer and file/print shares’.
4. Here you will see the shares which you currently have setup. If you do not see the required directory, then you need to add it by doing an F6 and selecting the type *FILE.
The share name would be the name of the directory. Access should be a 2 for Read/Write.
Once the share has been setup then we should be able to copy the PDF files into this directory.
