smbpasswd on solaris 2.6

I am running samba on linux and solaris 2.6. I have no problem making
encrypted passwords work on linux meaning I have Windows 98 and NT users
able to map a drive to their home directories on the samba server.
I am having problems doing the same thing on solaris 2.6. I have run the
mksmbpasswd.sh and the smbpasswd file got created. I have added the
following lines to my smb.conf file:
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /opt/samba/private/smbpasswd
I did everything the same as I did on Linux - slackware 7.0
The error I am getting is when I try as the root to change a user's
smbpasswd, I get the following message:
make_smb_from_nisp: NIS+ lookup failure: Error in accessing NIS+
file ... is NIS+ installed?
When I try as the user to change my smbpasswd I get:
machine 127.0.0.1 rejected the password change: Error was : The
password is invalid.
When prompted for the old smbpasswd I just hit enter because there is
nosmb passwd yet.
Do you have any suggestions for this situation....
