I have 2.2.8a as large Filesserver (>1000 connections) On AIX 5.2 
since August 2003. I am currently evalueating 3.0.2. The following 
things apply to both Versions:

Samba compiles with -D_LINUX_SOURCE_COMPAT, this breaks malloc in 64-
Bit mode. I configured with 'CFLAGS=-U_LINUX_SOURCE_COMPAT'.

configure finds strndup and strnlen, both are broken. I changed 
config.h after configuration accordingly. Otherwise 'mangling method 
= hash2' will not work under certain conditions.

Quotas don't work. See

Sometimes the Samba daemon hangs and will not accept any connections. 
This behavior happens with other daemons as well and seems to 
disapear with AIX 5.2 ML 02.
