I have installed samba 1.9.18p10 on AIX 4.2.1.  I have tested successfully
through test 8 in diagnosis.  In test 9 the client returns bad password.
When I test this same user/password combination with smbclient it works
fine.  Here is my smb.conf file:

   printing = AIX
   printcap name = /etc/qconfig
   load printers = yes
   guest account = nobody
   print command = qprt -P%p -dp %s

;  This next option sets a separate log file for each client. Remove
;  it if you want a combined log file.
;   log file = /usr/local/samba/log.%m

;  You will need a world readable lock directory and "share modes=yes"
;  if you want to support the file sharing modes for multiple users
;  of the same files
;  lock directory = /usr/local/samba/var/locks
;  share modes = yes

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = yes
   read only = no
   create mode = 0750
   guest ok = yes

   comment = All Printers
   browseable = no
   printable = yes
   guest ok = yes
   writable = no
   create mode = 0700
   print command = qprt -P%p -dp %s

   path = /
   public = yes
   guest ok = yes
   browseable = yes
   read only = no

   path = /mpftest
   browseable = yes
   read only = no
   user = mpf

I am having problems with the mpftestdir share.  Any help will be greatly
