Are you trying to run a Solaris 9 binary on Solaris 8? That ususally not a
good idea.
Does your Solaris 8 have an installed ldap library? I think Solaris 8 does
not install ldap libraries by default. What does ldd swat say?
The best idea would be to recompile Samba on Solaris 8. Solaris is upward
compatible, so you can use the Solaris 8 binaries on 9 to ease your life.
