There is a known problem with the locking system of HP-UX 10.20
it started with the december level of the extention software (B10.20.41)
Get the latest NFS megapatch from HP to fix this problem.

To check if the locking is dead, check if /usr/sbin/rpc.statd is running.
If not your locking system is dead... To fix the problem you have to delete
everything in /var/adm/statmon/* and reboot both systems in wich the locking
problem occurs.
samba 2.0.4b is running fine at our site on about 30 HP-UX systems.
