[Samba] Samba3 / iPlanet DS 5.1 on Solaris 9

Hi All,

Has anyone had experience with Samba 3 running on Solaris 9 and using the 
inbuilt iPlanet Directory Server?

We have an existing NT4 domain that we are using to implement SSO 
authentication (using pam_smb). We are now looking at moving to a more 
scalable back end like LDAP but want to preserve the existing 
authentication credentials.

I have read bits and pieces of the SMB howto collection and understand 
that the command "net rpc vampire" may be of help. Does this suck NT4  
credentials into LDAP as sambaAccount objects? What about the userPassword  
attribute in posixAccount? Can samba use this for authorizing NT logins?
can samba use this for authentication?

Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.
