Interesting that you don't consider AIX a "proper OS".
Putting difference of opinions aside re this.
Numerous company's do not have Client Services for NFS installed on any
Windows 7 or later workstations or servers. So cannot use NFS shares. Their
company policy does not allow it. No need to go into why that is. We have to
work around this.
Samba is a good solution. Nothing has to be installed on windows
Rob have you been able to download the samba release from the IBM site?
