OK, what you seem to be trying to set up is a standalone server with
only passworded user access.
Can I suggest you alter smb.conf to this:
# Change 'WORKGROUP' below to whatever
# you want your workgroup to be called.
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba on AIX
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
log level = 2
max log size = 1000
comment = All Printers
path = /usr/spool/samba
printable = Yes
browseable = No
comment = Temporary file space
path = /tmp
read only = No
Your users will need to exist in /etc/passwd and also be Samba users,
you can do this by running (as root):
smbpasswd -a USERNAME
You will be asked for a password for the user (twice) and then the user
will be added to Samba's database
You will also need to run (again as root):
smbpasswd -e USERNAME
You can find more info on this here:
You do not need to run winbind on a standalone server, only 'smbd' &
Any user that needs to connect to the shares, will need to be both a
Unix and Samba user on the standalone server, they will also have to
use the Samba users password.
