I am still trying to run SAMBA on AIX with "security = ads" and I have
a few questions:

- on AIX is no such file as /etc/nsswitch.conf --> Do I have to add
the configuration somewhere else?

- I allways get this "User xy is invalid on this system" if try to map
a share from Windows. What does this mean? Is the user invalid on the
Domain? on AIX? on SAMBA? Is the User known by SAMBA but has no access
rights on this share?

- Has "security = ads" on AIX ever been tested?

Any help would be appreciated!!!
