If I understood right, and assuming your smb shares are on a windows
machine, you have something like this:

windows box  ====>    Linux box    ====>   Solaris box
              SMB                   NFS

If that's correct, what you wanna do is perfectly possible and legal.
You just need to mount the smb share from the (supposed) windows box to
the linux one using samba, and then reexport the directory with the
mount point using NFS to the solaris box... no extra docs are needed, be
sure to activate oplocks in the samba config file on linux box.
