We had a similar problem a while back. It actually was a combination of two issues. The first issue was that someone changed the ownership of some libraries accidently, and the second was that we were doing an IPL on development and production at the same time. The link could not be established because the other box was not up yet.
There is a note regarding authorities and ownership on SAPNET, but there are some libraries off of root that it does not address. Ask Volker about those. Look at note number 173579. It discusses running FIXR3OWNS (kernel related) and AS4FIXFILE (mostly data library related).

Hello there my fellow saplings. Hope the new year is treating you all well. Anyway I have a problem that I hope you guys can give me some direction on. My problem is that over the weekend I did an IPL to our production box, normally after the IPL I re-establish the link between the two servers without any problem, however this weekend it seems to doing weard things when I try to change the directory to QFILESVR.400 it does it how ever when I try creating the link MKDIR AS0001 the directory created but is empty and also the date that it said it was created is JAN 02 1970 and also shows owner as QSECOFR when it should be QSYS . If I try to link TP root to this directory I get NOT AUTHORIZE TO DIRECTORY. MY AS400 is V4R4M0 running SAP 3.1I. Can anyone give me a suggestion as to how to correct this. The command I user when sign on to the production system is as follows:
cd 'qfilesvr.400' mksir as0001 cd '/usr/sap/trans'
I have try it in upper and lower case on my box.
