Hi,

I need to mimic AIX for my website that suppose to run under IBM HTTP server.

I find out that i cannot use VMWare and Virtualbox and i don't have the relevant hardware.

So, my question is that which UNIX/LINUX derivative is closest to IBM AIX in terms of usage (commands, shell, setting up a webserver)?

Regards.

Hi,

Is Samba native to Centos? The AIX in place uses Samba.
