For various reasons getting Samba built on AIX can be a bit challenging.
Test the browse master functionality using the SMB client tool as follows: The following is the relevant excerpt from log.nmbd: Samba name server AIXFVT21 is now a local master browser for the workgroup SAMBA on subnet 188.8.131.52.
You can either compile Samba yourself or install precompiled Samba packages from third party vendors. Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems. Now browse the network neighborhood in the Windows client.
It can be run on a UNIX-like platform like AIX, BSD UNIX, Linux, IBM 390 and OpenVMS.
It is recommended to compile Samba with the native xlc compiler from IBM, you will need to install also a number of other third party packages first, which also depends on the features that you want to compile into your Samba binary. In /etc/init.d there is no file like smb, samba or smbd. Create a new file system with v2=extended attribute /samba. Alternatively, a timer can be mentioned in the smb.conf, as follows: Connect a client and keep the drive idle for a minute. Asking for help, clarification, or responding to other answers.

Samba can act as browse master with the following setting: The interval in seconds for which nmbd can wait before repeatedly broadcasting LAN Manager announcements can be set as follows in smb.conf: Now test the connectivity from a Windows client. Why would a compass not work in my world? Hello, I need to upgrade Domain from Windows 2000 to Windows 2008 (Longhorn) and I need to know what is the compatible version of Samba to access to windows share from AIX. These can be started from the command line as follows: The logs of these daemons can be found in the /var directory as log.nmbd and log.smbd, respectively.
UNIX is a registered trademark of The Open Group. Samba is an open source free, software suite that provides seamless file and print services between Windows clients and UNIX-like platforms. If it isn't, you get an empty output. Check the permissions of the file that is created in that share. The following are the configuration details for using NFSv4 ACL with Samba. Convert the ACL type of test1.txt to NFS4: There is no predictable mapping between UNIX mapping and NFS4 ACL.
