[Samba] NT user name resolution to UNIX user name doesn't work the same

My departmental file server is on RHL6.2(i386) (Samba 2.0.6) and participates in the company's NT domain. If an NT user wants to see shares on this UNIX(Linux) box I have only to create a UNIX account for them where the UNIX username matches the NT username. I have a Solaris 8 box (Samba 2.2.2), I cannot figure out how to make it act the same way. I have looked at winbindd but that does noot seem to do what I want. What I do not want to do is maintain a smbpasswd file.
