I tried these settings and disabled username map = /home/robot/smbmap in smb.conf but still when I try and access the samba share from Windows it will not allow me access to the directory. Logs look quite clean but no access to any share. It seems to find my windows account in Kerberos, authenticates OK but for some reason doesn't give me access to the share

So I re-enabled the username map and found myself a workaround for the time being.

I am using ldapsearch command to query the Windows Active Directory to extract all users that are a member of a specific Windows AD group and then writing the output after reformatting into /home/robot/smbmap using awk to create the correctly formatted permission file. So it writes in around 50 user accounts who are allowed access into the file. This allows access to the AIX shares fine as all of these users are mapped to the AIX root user account. Ill set it as a cron job to run once a week or month.

But frustrating that I have to do it this way. Ill see if I can post on the IBM forum as well. Thanks

SMBSTATUS(1)							   User Commands						      SMBSTATUS(1)

NAME
smbstatus - report on current Samba connections SYNOPSIS
smbstatus [-P] [-b] [-d <debug level>] [-v] [-L] [-B] [-p] [-S] [-s <configuration file>] [-u <username>] DESCRIPTION
This tool is part of the samba(7) suite. smbstatus is a very simple program to list the current Samba connections. OPTIONS
-P|--profile If samba has been compiled with the profiling option, print only the contents of the profiling shared memory area. -b|--brief gives brief output. -d|--debuglevel=level level is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this parameter is not specified is 0. The higher this value, the more detail will be logged to the log files about the activities of the server. At level 0, only critical errors and serious warnings will be logged. Level 1 is a reasonable level for day-to-day running - it generates a small amount of information about operations carried out. Levels above 1 will generate considerable amounts of log data, and should only be used when investigating a problem. Levels above 3 are designed for use only by developers and generate HUGE amounts of log data, most of which is extremely cryptic. Note that specifying this parameter here will override the smb.conf.5.html# parameter in the smb.conf file. -V|--version Prints the program version number. -s|--configfile <configuration file> The file specified contains the configuration details required by the server. The information in this file includes server-specific information such as what printcap file to use, as well as descriptions of all the services that the server is to provide. See smb.conf for more information. The default configuration file name is determined at compile time. -l|--log-basename=logdirectory Base directory name for log/debug files. The extension ".progname" will be appended (e.g. log.smbclient, log.smbd, etc...). The log file is never removed by the client. -v|--verbose gives verbose output. -L|--locks causes smbstatus to only list locks. -B|--byterange causes smbstatus to include byte range locks. -p|--processes print a list of smbd(8) processes and exit. Useful for scripting. -S|--shares causes smbstatus to only list shares. -h|--help Print a summary of command line options. -u|--user=<username> selects information relevant to username only. VERSION
This man page is correct for version 3 of the Samba suite. SEE ALSO
smbd(8) and smb.conf(5). AUTHOR
The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed. The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer. The man page sources were converted to YODL format (another excellent piece of Open Source software, available at ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/) and updated for the Samba 2.0 release by Jeremy Allison. The conversion to DocBook for Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter. The conversion to DocBook XML 4.2 for Samba 3.0 was done by Alexander Bokovoy. Samba 3.5 06/18/2010 SMBSTATUS(1)
