AIX 5.2 is the os level. Samba 3.0.22, I pulled the binaries from Samba's site http://us1.samba.org/samba/ftp/Binary_Packages/AIX/.  They extracted to /opt/Samba/3.0.22/.  The snmd, nmbd, swat, and winbindd, all are in /opt/Samba/3.0.22/sbin/.  I have an old doc from IBM that says to modify the /etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf adding these lines, for installing Samba 2 on Aix 4.3.

/etc/services
netbios-ns 137/udp
netbios-ssn 139/tcp
swat 901/tcp

/etc/inetd.conf
netbios-ssn stream tcp nowait root /opt/Samba/3.0.22/sbin/smbd smbd
netbios-ns dgram udp wait root /opt/Samba/3.0.22/sbin/nmbd nmbd
swat stream tcp nowait.400 root /opt/Samba/3.0.22/sbin/swat swat

After editing the files, type refresh -s inetd

So I'm asking is this the proper syntax and files that need to be modified to set this up in Aix 5.2 so the daemons start automatically on a reboot of the server.
And, what's the syntax to stop and start these daemons manually?
