One thought I just had ... have you actually created samba accounts  
on the Solaris machine correctly? ... If the passwords match on the  
AD, and the two samba servers, then they should connect just fine.  
But you need to have separate accounts for them on each machine if  
you're not going to join the machine to AD.

I just reread your initial email and you say that "We are  
authenticated by DC"  which is why I thought you were connecting the  
samba machines to the AD. ... So do you know exactly what  
authentication method youor two samba servers are using? ... Perhaps  
you should post a copy of your smb.conf files  (with any sensitive  
data masked, of course) and that might give us a clue.
