I had just assumed that they were using Samba. Why on gods green earth would they re-invent the wheel. I thought NetServer was essentially using Samba under the covers.

Guess I must be wrong and explains some of the reasons why data transfers to the IBM i are so horribly slow.

What I was ultimately trying to ascertain was if there was a critical vulnerability that IBM i was vulnerable to if they were using Samba versions prior to 3.6.3.

IBM included Samba with 7.1?!

IBM has included their own tool, called "NetServer" for ages. It's
never worked as well as Samba, IMHO. And my 7.1 boxes seemed to use the
same NetServer tool.

Can you give us more context?

Which version of Samba did IBM bake into the OS in V7R1 or are they using their own implementation?
