You want to import NFS on Linux and re-export it via Samba?
I wouldn't do that, I'd install Samba directly on the
Solaris boxes. Might need a bit more memory on those boxes,
but it will definitely perform better that way with less
overall hardware. And, there's initial support for NFSv4
ACLs on ZFS managed via Samba, a thing that will definitely
not work across NFS.
