== How to install samba-4.1.16 on aix-6.1 ==

Based upon instructions by Noël Köthe, credativ GmbH, sept 2014.
 
 
We describe how to build, configure, pack/unpack and install Samba --the Open Source SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix-- version 4.1.16 on a PowerPC running IBM's AIX 6.1.
 
 
=== Building and installing ===
 
 
* Install the IBM compiler xlc version 13.1.0. (Compiling with gcc won't work, see https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10828 .)
 
* Install python + dependencies; since Samba uses python for its build system. Likely these RPMs suffice:
 
 
<pre>
 
bash-4.2-12.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
bzip2-1.0.6-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
db4-4.7.25-2.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
expat-2.1.0-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
fontconfig-2.10.2-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
freetype2-2.5.2-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
gdbm-1.11-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
gettext-0.17-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
glib2-2.38.2-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
gmp-5.1.3-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
info-5.2-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
libXft-2.3.1-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
libXrender-0.9.8-1.aix6.1.ppc.rpm
 
libgcc-4.8.2-1.aix7.1.ppc.rpm
 
libiconv-1.14-2.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
libpng-1.6.9-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
libstdc++-4.8.2-1.aix7.1.ppc.rpm
 
libstdc++-devel-4.8.2-1.aix7.1.ppc.rpm
 
pkg-config-0.28-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
python-2.7.5-1.aix6.1.ppc.rpm
 
python-devel-2.7.5-1.aix6.1.ppc.rpm
 
python-libs-2.7.5-1.aix6.1.ppc.rpm
 
readline-6.2-5.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
renderproto-0.11.1-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
sqlite-3.8.1-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
tcl-8.5.15-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
tk-8.5.15-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
zlib-1.2.8-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
 
</pre>
 
 
Install them by running:
 
 
# rpm -ivh * --nodeps
 
 
* In a directory with enough space (ideally _not_ under the install root /appl/samba), unpack the samba sources
 
 
# gunzip samba-4.1.17.tar.gz && tar -xf samba-4.1.17.tar && cd samba-4.1.17
 
 
* Build and install
 
 
# export PATH=$PATH:/opt/IBM/xlC/13.1.0/bin/
 
 
# ./configure --prefix=/appl/samba --check-c-compiler=xlc
 
[...]
 
'configure' finished successfully
 
 
# make
 
[...]
 
Compiling ...
 
Linking ...
 
'build' finished successfully
 
 
# make install
 
[...]
 
'install finished successfully'
 
 
* Fix missing symlinks to .so-files [1]:
 
 
# cd /appl/samba/lib/private/
 
# ls | grep "so\.[0-9]$" | while read f; do ln -s $f ${f%.?}; done
 
# ls | grep "so\.[0-9][0-9]$" | while read f; do ln -s $f ${f%.??}; done
 
 
See also http://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10840 NB: this is NOT the same as Noël's script!
 
 
* Add a configuration file:
 
 
# vi /appl/samba/etc/smb.conf
 
 
This one works for tests:
 
 
<pre>
 
[global]
 
workgroup = SIM
 
netbios name = SERVERNAME
 
server string = Fileserver
 
security = user
 
;interfaces = en 192.168.1.2/24
 
;bind interfaces ony = yes
 
 
log level = 2
 
log file = /appl/samba/logs/log.%m
 
syslog = 0
 
 
[SHARE]
 
comment = production share
 
path = /LOCAL/EXISTING/PATH/OF/A/SHARE
 
read only = no
 
;create mask = 0775
 
directory mask = 775
 
;valid user =
 
;force user =
 
;force group =
 
</pre>

=== Testing ===
 
 
In order to run the samba binaries, set this:
 
 
# export LIBPATH=/appl/samba/lib:/appl/samba/lib/private
 
 
Start the Samba daemon:
 
 
# /appl/samba/sbin/smbd -D
 
 
Test samba:
 
 
# /appl/samba/bin/smbclient -L localhost
 
 
Add a samba user, and give this user a samba password, for more testing:
 
 
# /appl/samba/bin/smbpasswd -a <localunixusername>
 
[...]
 
"Added user [...]
 
 
Test a user login:
 
 
# /appl/samba/bin/smbclient -U <username> //localhost/INTERFACES
 
smb: \> ls
 
[...]
 
smb: \> cd .snapshot
 
smb: \.snapshot\> ls
 
[...]
 
 
Show the connected clients
 
 
# smbstatus
 
 
== Installing on another AIX 6 system ==
 
 
Create a tar archive of /appl/samba to copy /appl/samba to the other machine.
 
(NB: tar as shipped with AIX does not support the z-flag. Manually g(un)zip the .tar if needed.)
 
After unpacking this file there, and creating /appl/samba/etc/smb.conf, one can start smbd:
 
 
# export LIBPATH=/appl/samba/lib:/appl/samba/lib/private
 
# /appl/samba/sbin/smbd -D
 
 
No need to run ./configure or make, no need to install xlc. You _do_ need Python to run Samba.
 
 
 
[1] When these symlinks are not created, trying to run smbclient will give
 
an error 'Cannot load module libtevent.so.'
