Well, it depends. How *slow* is slow?
And also, have you cranked up the logging on the auth part?
log level = passdb:10 auth:10
Also have you set:
passdb backend = ldapsam ldap://auth.yourhost.com
I am also assuming you have all the LDAP stuff setup properly, of course as needed/if needed.
ldap admin dn
ldap delete dn
ldap group suffix
ldap idmap suffix
ldap machine suffix
ldap passwd sync
ldap replication sleep
ldap user suffix
Hopefully, if you have good throughput, its all in these settings. If
you don't have good throughput... well time to check the networking
tweaks for samba.
Also, if the delay turns out to be a lookup delay, try hard coding the
name and ipaddr in the /etc/hosts file on the AIX box. This sometimes is
a good work around for DNS queries gone bad.
