I require urgent assistance on a problem I am having with Samba 1.9.18
on AIX 4.1.5.  It seems that upon make install the
/usr/local/samba/var/locks directory is not created and upon setting up
inetd.conf and executing a kill -1 {pid of inetd} the locks directory
still does not exist, no log files are created and STATUS..LCK is not

I execute
--->\\{system name}

I get an error referring to the machine or system name does not exist.

I execute nmbstatus {system name} and get the following:

Sending queries to
name_query failed to find name {system name}

Try smbstatus and get the following:

Couldn't open status file /usr/local/samba/var/locks/STATUS..LCK

I have enven attempted to create the locks directory by hand and opened
it with permissions 777 and the errors above are still generated.

Resolution to this problem is of the highest priority here.  Can anyone
