Error 8210: Cannot Create Directory displayed in log
Messages queuing up in the dsnhold directory.


Found that there was an extremely large accumulation of files in the dsnhold directory. After renaming the directory structure, the gateway recreated the dsnhold directory and began processing messages properly.
We have also found 0 byte files stuck in the receive directory. After renaming the receive directory and restarting the GWIA, messages were no longer backing up in the dsnhold directory.
