I already removed all the CSW packages... I installed them only to try the 
transfer rates with another Samba package.

So you want to say that Sun packaged Samba has some problems and that's why 
the transfer rates are so messed up? But how can that be possible, I mean, 
Solaris is enterprise OS... And CSWSamba problem I had is the inability to 
join ADS.

I will try it, although I hate this much experimenting with the machine that's 
supposed to go into production :( If the stuff works I think I will need to 
reinstall it from scratch :(

But the main question is still the same - what about Samba packaged by Sun? 
From the system administrators point of view, it's working absolutely awesome 
(SVC startup methods, winbind, wins, PAM integration, getent, kerberos)...

And to migrate all that stuff to CSW - I don't have a good experience with CSW 
samba so far in that point of view :(
