I can mount a Windows server 2003 share on Aix 5.2 but cannot access the folder on the unix box. Tried setting user name mapping on NFS on Windows box but need assitance in setting this up. Permissions of unix folder vary according to what Uid is set on Windows NFS server but cant access.

Hi,
on the client side, you won't need samba.
You can use the cifs client:
bos.cifs_fs.rte
which is part of AIX.
After Installation (reboot!) use the smit menus to configure.
Greetings
Norbert

I am reluctant to install and reboot on Aix - is there any other way using existing NFS on Aix

Being not a Windows/NFS expert, I fear I can't help further.
Good luck,
Norbert

I have installed Services for Unix adminsitrtaion on the windows server - set up a user map to a windows domain user and a unix user - can mount the share on Aix but still can't access. How do you set the permissions on the windows share so that a unix user can access ?

Managed to fix by installing CIFS then adding share and mount using command with domain name of user with access to share
mount v cifs n remote_ip_address/remoteusername/password o wrkgrp=domain ,fmode=755 /sharename /mnt_testing
