I have tried to compile 2.0.4b and 2.0.5a on AIX3.2.5 and it
gives a problem when I test it with "smbclient -L bigserver",
that was discussed in the archives. I thought it was fixed.
It gives:-

[1999/07/22 20:57:05, 0] smbd/uid.c:(68)
  Couldn't set effective uid to 207. Currently set to (real=0,eff=0).
Error was 
Not owner
[1999/07/22 20:57:05, 0] smbd/service.c:(463)
  Can't become connected user!
[1999/07/22 20:57:05, 2] smbd/server.c:(406)
  Closing connections

I saw one message about making sure that configure was done as root, but
I did that. configure (2.0.5a) did warn me:-

checking configure summary
WARNING: trapdoor uid system - Samba may not operate correctly
WARNING: No automated netmask determination - use an interfaces line
configure OK

I can not see a way round this and I did not find anything in the archives.
Did I miss it? Can anyone help?

Cheers, Brian.
