Hi Casey,

Are you using HP CIFS Server or Opensource Samba?  I am guessing from 
the library error that you were using CIFS Server and then tried to 
install and run Opensource.  What HP-UX version are you on?

If you are compiling/using Opensource, then you need to update past 
3.0.28, so you might as well get 3.0.31.  You will also need to install 
OpenLDAP to get the libraries.  Go here and read the README: 

If you are using HP CIFS Server, then the latest version is based upon 
Samba 3.0.22a with fixes ported in from later versions up to 3.0.25a. 
So it does not have the fix for joining a W2008 domain with "security = 
ads".  You can join W2008 with "security = domain", though.
