If the client does not send encrypted passwords, samba takes the 
plaintext password and checks it again /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, nis, 
pam or what ever is used on your system. With out any special setup 
wie do not have any problems with a mixture of plaintext and 
encrypted passwords. 

Are your solaris user accounts disabled in /etc/passwd?
