Setting up Samba for InfoPrint Manager for AIX

  1. First, you need to install Samba for AIX. Samba binaries for AIX are available in the IBM AIX Expansion pack DVD. Follow the installation instructions available with the Samba for AIX distribution.
  2. Samba has two daemons, nmbd and smbd, that need to be running in order for Samba to work correctly. These can be started from the command line as follows:
    • # nmbd
    • # smbd
  3. To set these daemons to start automatically during system reboot, add the entries into /etc/inittab, as follows:
    • mkitab nmb:2:once:/usr/sbin/nmbd
    • mkitab smb:2:once:/usr/sbin/smbd
