Is "/usr/local/samba/bin/make_smbcodepage" a shell
script or a binary? Does it have the proper exec bit

Are you positively sure that what ran on the old
machine was 10.20? What was the model of the old
server and what is the model of the new one? The
above error sounds like you are trying to run
Apollo m64k on an hppa or at least trying to run
hppa 2.0 binary on a 1.0 or 1.1.

Can you post what the old and the new server
output when you execute the commands "uname -a"
and "model"? Also, what comes back from executing
"file smbd", "what smbd", and "chatr smbd" on
both servers? It may help to undestand the problem.

There's really no excuse for keeping 10.20.
