>Problem is, from Samba 4.8.0 , with 'security = ADS', you must run winbind.

I am running winbind.  Happy to do so.  It just uses different config files and stuff than Linux.

The "lsuser -R WIBIND ALL" command not returning any data is a known bug.  The equivalent lsgroup command works.

>Sorry, but I cannot help any further than this.

No worries.  Thank you so much for your time thus far!  Hoping someone else who has a working AIX setup will comment...

Thanks again everyone!
