[Samba] Samba 4 vs UNIX password

Ok, now I'm stuck...
We have several stand-alone UNIX (AIX) systems that we need to share a few SMB shares from. None of these are joined to our domain.
We want the end-users to be able to map these shares to their Windows systems using the username in the form of AIXSERVER\username, and using the password from their local AIX account on the server.
Asking the end-users to understand that they must run smbpasswd after updating their OS password is not realistic. In the past, we were able to get around that by specifying "security = SHARE" in the smb.conf file. Now that this is removed, what option do I have to ensure that users can always log in via their UNIX OS password, and don't need to run smbpasswd after running passwd? Is there such a method? pam_smbpass.so?
Also, what was the last version of Samba that supported "security = share"?
