not in context of samba when the samba developers don't have a single 
AIX machine for testing and it comes with samba versions from the last 
decade - the same applies to most software projects because very few 
developers outside AIX care about it these days

WTF are you talking about - where did i write a single line about access 
NFS with window sclients?

* AIX for "We have 4ge programs running on AIX"
* store to local folder as it's done now
* export this folder with NFS
* share from a different machine running a recent samba
   version this NFS mount

that's for the cases where the stubborn "We have 4ge programs running on 
AIX" may not be able to write their data direectly on the samba sahre of 
a different server, otherwise just setup samba on *a proper OS for 
samba* and access it form the AIX server and the clients via SMB

no idea what you did not understand above especially in "setup a proper 
OS with a recent samba in a virtual machine"
