Hmmm, I don't know about that, sorry. I misread your initial email.  
As far as I know (and I don't know very much about how samba  
interracts with AD, I'm sorry) Samba can't authenticate against an AD  
without actually joining it to the domain. So I'm quite surprised to  
hear that that Samba 2.2.8a is managing it, but don't know how it  
works. I just happened to know that Solaris didn't have the kerberos  
abilities built in.

Is joining samba to the AD so awful?

No troubles. I'm happy to pass on what little information I have.
