Not sure about the error message, but it may point to a typical
Solaris-Samba-LDAP problem. 
Unfortunately Samba doesn't compile or work with some of the libraries
supplied by Sun, so one has to compile against OpenLDAP libraries and
MIT- or Heimdal-Kerberos. As a result LD_LIBRARY_PATH must be set up
correctly before joining the ADS and LD_LIBRARY_PATH should also be in
the startup script. (Yes, I know it sounds stupid, but this is the main
difference compared with a Linux installation an it is not mentionied in
the original post)

To be sure everything is OK, do checks with "ldd" and have a look at
config.status and config.log in the Samba source directory.

hope this helps,
