This well be hard to find.

I think best way is to download samba and compile it on your AIX 
to my knowlidge there is no such tool or other code to display 
windows shares on AIX besides smbclient, and please someone correct 
me if im wrong. 
so my guest is the first email i send you, thats one which will work 
if you compile samba. 
thats not that hard.. 

ow and share.vbs IS in the resouce kit at downloads.microsoft.com 

good luck again. 
and.. searching for such a tool wil cost more time then compiling
( i did spent about 10 Min now on searching, which is very long for me ) ;-)
