I am using the i5/OS bi-directional driver, and I am trying to connect
from IDM to the driver shim on i5/OS.
Initially, I was getting an error message saying "Invalid loader password".

I was then advised to install a patch (idm301bidirmidir2.tar.gz) from the
novell site.
I have installed this patch by updating the existing installation of the
driver shim i.e. I did not uninstall and reinstall the driver shim.
I have also re-set the remote loader and driver object password after
installing the patch.

Now, when I try to re-start the driver shim, I am getting a different kind
of error. It says:
"Remote loader password and driver object password must be set".

Any idea why this could be happening?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
