[Samba] Stopping Samba

  I have installed Samba on AIX 5.3 as per the document on http://us3.samba.org/samba/ftp/Binary_Packages/AIX/README.
  Everthing worked well and I was able to connect to the shared directory 
  from an Windows 2003 machine.
  I now want to stop the smdb,nmbd processes from the command line.
  Although, I can start the processes from the command line (basically a script),
  but I do not know how to stop the processes ( apart from kill -HUP smdb etc.)
  as there is no file in /etc/inet directory that can be used for this purpose as I have installed
  binaries for AIX which have installed only in /opt.
  Unfortunately commands such as pkill,killproc are not working on my system.
  Basically I want a auto start/stop mechanism for Samba 3.0.21c on AIX 5.3.
  Any help would be appreciated.
