Hi Dave,

Version 2.2.7 is very old. Is this the IBM provided version from the AIX 
toolbox? You may want to consider:


and download something more recent in the 3.3 (3.3.10) or 3.4 (3.4.5) 

Also, it is helpful to include your smb.conf (minus any security related 
stuff) so we can view your setup and offer advice.
