bos.cifs_fsfiles sets of the AIX Base Operating System since at least 5.2. In order to work properly, it needs some configuration. A useful write-up for AIX can be found here.
smb.conf. It's default location varies with the "distribution". Could be
/usr/local/samba/lib/or somewhere else. I prefer to put it
/etc/samba/. Some important entries are:
smb passwd file = ... encrypt passwords = yes log file = /var/adm/samba/log.%m ; IP address of Samba server machine: socket address = xxx.yyy.aaa.bbb security = user
/usr/sbin/nmbd -d 1 -D -s /etc/samba/smb.conf /usr/sbin/smbd -d 1 -D -s /etc/samba/smb.confand put these lines into some central startup script, e.g.
/etc/rc.local, so that the services are available after reboot.
smbpasswd, which again can reside anywhere, defaults I've seen so far are
/var/private/, or anywhere else.
smbpasswd -c /etc/samba/smb.conf -a feinbeinwill add a new user
feinbeinand will prompt twice for a Samba password.
smbpasswdneeds to know the location of the Samba configuration file, either via the
-coption as below or via the builtin path name. Thus it might be convenient to define
ln -s /etc/samba/smb.conf /usr/lib/smb.conf
smbclient //sambaserver/homes -U feinbeinwhich after login should enable listing the UNIX home directory.
smbcontrolwhich allows to control the running Samba daemons.

smbpasswdand answer the prompts.
