Check your permissions of the filesystem your samba resides on.
For some strange reasons AIX always sets the initial owner:group to bin:sys and
sets the group sticky bit.
Remove the group stick bit and set the owner/group of smbd and nmbd to root:system.
Perhaps a security guru can tell about the security concerns.
Hope it helps...

Subject: Compiling on AIX3.2.5
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.
[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).
[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)
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
I can not see a way round this and I did not find anything in the archives.
Did I miss it? Can anyone help?
