Is this the proper place to ask a question about setting up samba on aix with active directory?

    Cool... Here's the scenario, I've set up pware64 samba on an AIX 6.1 system and have joined it to an AD domain.  The problem the set up is having is that users in the groups with full access (read, write and delete access) aren't able to write a file to the shares or delete a file unless I change the permissions of the directory to 777 (They were 775.)  The smb.conf file has the share set up for 775 access.  Can I add the groups to AIX so the users in the groups can access the shares at the group permissions level rather than the other permissions level.  If so, how should it be done? I hope I've explained this well enough.  Let me know if you want me to post the smb.conf file or any other information needed.  Thanks for the help.

      Did you resolve this issue yet?   Writes are successful when you set other to read-write-exec (7) so owner and group aren't being respected.   Question: When the users on the windows side map or connect to the samba share, do they actually get a window to specify the credentials (username password with respect to active directory) information...or does it just open up the share.?  If they do get a credentials windows, what is the result of that authentication...check both active directory server and samba logs.

    I"m having problems with luser seeing winbind on my server.  The luser -R WINBIND ALL returns error "Invalid -R option "WINBIND"".  It's listed in /usr/lib/security/methods.cfg and in /etc/security/user "SYSTEM = "compat or WINBIND".  Any idea why lsuser -R would consider WINBIND an invalid option?
