Can anyone guide me in installing SAMBA 3.3.4 on AIX 5.3 server.
1. I have downloaded samba-3.3.4.tar.gz file
2. Unzipped and extracted the files, which created a directory samba-3.3.4 in the same location.
Under the directory samba-3.3.4, I got many directories but not sure how to proceed from here.
I got many smb.conf files under the extracted directory "samba-3.3.4"
Need your assistance in fixing this.

Re: SAMBA Installation2009-05-12T20:48:08ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.I cannot say I am going to fix anything, but it looks like you downloaded a source tarball. You will need a C compiler to generate the object code to create the runnable application.
With some google searching you might be able to find a precompiled AIX binary distribution of samba out there.

1. edit /etc/services, enter suitable lines in the file /etc/services,
such as the following:
netbios-ns 137/tcp # NETBIOS Name Service
netbios-ns 137/udp # NETBIOS Name Service
netbios-dgm 138/tcp # NETBIOS Datagram Service
netbios-dgm 138/udp # NETBIOS Datagram Service
netbios-ssn 139/tcp # NETBIOS Session Service
netbios-ssn 139/udp # NETBIOS Session Service
swat 901/tcp # swat service of samba
2. edit /etc/inetd.conf, enter suitable lines in the file
/etc/inetd.conf, such as the following:
netbios-ssn stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd smbd
netbios-ns dgram udp wait root /usr/local/samba/sbin/nmbd nmbd
swat stream tcp nowait.400 root /usr/local/samba/sbin/swat swat
After editing the files, type refresh -s inetd.
But after this while verifying of SAMBA, nothing returned.
Use the smbclient command to test the installation:
/usr/local/samba/bin/smbclient -L yourhostname
IF someone can guide me from here, it will be helpful
Thanks in advance

Re: SAMBA Installation2009-05-12T22:14:08ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.You might want to check out the AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications:
There's a precompiled Samba server and client in there.
