It's good choice if  You first upload Your version of  samba with new version  
(Cifs is SAMBA for HP-UX).
I use this samba configuration and I have no problem:
I suggest You to change security option in
security = USER
this is better and more secure.Security=share is option for old samba !

You must create unix users , samba users and map windows users with samba 
For example: Your Win user is  "name.win" :
You must create a unix users "name" (with SAM) than you must create
samba user "name" with smbpasswd (also with tools SWAT that is more easy)
finally you must map your Win users with samba users.

In sam.conf  you find this a config-line:
username map=/etc/opt/sambausername.map
This option allows you to specify a file containing a mapping of usernames 
from the clients to the server.
In this file You must write this record

I have installed Samba with a depot I downloaded from the HP-UX Porting
and Archive Center.  We have an intranet site on an HP-UX 11.0 box, and
ultimately, my goal is to have links on the Web pages open up files
(Word docs, etc.) on various Windows machines (XP, 2000, NT).

I'm having difficulty getting Samba to work at all.  I've scoured past
newsgroup posts, and I'm not finding the solution I need.

I have a Windows 2000 PC, and I'm trying to connect to the HP-UX
machine.  Following is my current smb.conf on the HP machine:



        workgroup = UNIX
        security = SHARE
        encrypt passwords = Yes
