Change Command Default for Create Network Server Desc (CRTNWSD) to *GUEST
As IBM i hosting IBM i has become ever more popular, when creating a Network Server Description (CRTNWSD) it is much more likely you would want to specify IBM i parameters rather than the default Windows based ones. I think that changing these command defaults would save a SysAdmin time and also promote i hosting i
The defaults today are: Network server type: Server connection . . . . . . *IXSVR Server operating system . . . *WIN32
I am proposing they the command default be changed to Network server type: Server connection . . . . . . > *GUEST Server operating system . . . > *OPSYS
