Hi Jeremy,
Pulled 2.2.3 CVS yesterday, it configured, built, installed and ran from
scratch without problems on HP-UX 11.0.  Reset my machine account on my
native Win2k SP2 Domain, smbpasswd joined the domain, cp'ed
and to the appropriate HPUX system library directories,
modified pam.conf and nsswitch.conf, and was able to ftp and login to the
HPUX box via DOMAINNAME+USERNAME format, copy files, etc.  Same with
accessing the HPUX filesets via samba from W2K domain clients whose only
user and group records existed only in the W2K domain, not smbpasswd or
Life is looking good!
No stress testing, but expected functionality works without a hitch.
I was using the HPUX ANSI C complier for the build.

Main caveat at the moment is that HPUX implementation of pam and nsswitch
limit the 'methods' for password change to a list of 'known' methods (nis,
nis+ compat, files, ldap...) and having 'winbind' as a method in the
nsswitch.conf file 'breaks' the HPUX passwd command.  Not a Samba/Winbindd
issue, but something we will eventually have to tackle...
Thanks for getting all the HPUX changes in for us!

Hi all,

	I'm hoping to ship 2.2.3 this friday (USA Pacific Time). This means
it would really help for people to do a final check out of the source code
from SAMBA_2_2
and test it as much as possible. I don't have any current show stoppers
listed, but Jerry and I will be regression testing as much as possible
over the next few days.
