Prevent IFS directory from being created if iASP with the same nama exist
I think it would be a good idea to prevent an IFS directory to be created if an iASP with the same name as the directory exists. At the moment, the IFS directory can be created with the consequence that at vary-on of the iASP, the file system will fail to be mounted.
Customer has a printer device description which creates PDF files in an iASP IFS directory. While the iASP was vary-off, the printer was started and created the PDF files. To store these PDF files in the IFS, the system created the path with the same name as the iASP IFS path. The vary-on of the iASP failed to mount the file system because the directory if was supposed to mount over was not empty.
